Well I’m often told various things about myself but I also find it hard to speak about myself, actually describe myself.
So when asked over the weekend how would I describe myself, I found myself a little ‘mind blank’ so to speak. I’m not sure how I would describe myself?
After thinking about it I’ve come up with a few words, that I feel could possibly sum up my personality.
Loyal – I’m often told that I’m a very loyal friend and once I have bonded with someone or care for them. I am, and I alway’s will be loyal to them.
Caring – I do wear my heart on my sleeve, I know others may beg to differ, however I am a sensitive person. I however do have a ‘toughened’ exterior and try not to show my feelings or emotions too much but I’m quite sensitive, I just try not to show it. When I care, I do care deeply and do all that I can, to ensure those I care about are happy and protected.
Assertive – yup – I’m assertive. I speak my mind and always tell it how I see it. I don’t sugar coat my feelings, although if I’m put in a position where it may hurt another’s feelings, I try to be as honest as I can, but without hurting others.
Trustworthy – I have held many secrets for many years. If I am confided in, that’s where the information stays. I’m not one to ‘air’ other people’s thoughts, feelings or ‘laundry’. I don’t gossip and I don’t care to gossip. Once it’s in ‘the vault’ be sure that’s where it will stay.
Friendly and outgoing – I do have a big personality some may say. I’m generally a happy person and when I am in social settings, I’m not scared to start conversations with strangers and I am, the type of person who will go and speak to the person who is alone to try and help them to feel comfortable. I’m quite often smiling and have been told that my ‘friendliness’ is contagious. I’m also outgoing and will befriend strangers.
Abrasive – if someone has betrayed me or upset me I’m not one to forgive and it forget. I can hold a grudge and I do. Possibly not a great personality trait, however I don’t have the time or energy for those who I believe are not worthy of my time. I may not have a gazillion friends, but those who I choose to have close by me, I treasure. As the old saying goes ‘once bitten, twice shy’. I rarely give second chances. I will be polite in all situations, that does not mean I like you, nor does it mean I respect you or care for you. I’m harsh but real. This I feel can be abrasive, but that’s me, a little ‘rough’ around the edges and speak my mind but also have a soft heart for those deserving.
How would you describe yourself?
