I don’t really know how to describe myself. I have always avoided doing so. Two reasons for this. Firstly, I did not want to appear presumptuous! Secondly, I do not like to describe myself and hence put myself in a box so to speak.
Who am I? That is a good question. I am not really completely sure yet. Still finding my way, and that way seems pretty cluttered. Anne Frank got it right when she said, “…keep on trying to find a way of becoming what I would like to be, and could be, if there weren’t any other people living in the world.” It’s really very hard to find out who you are when there are so many voices yelling at you to be one way or another.
I am still learning to drown out the ‘noise’ and listen to MY voice. It’s a quiet little voice that most times does not get through the noise, but lately I’ve found it’s becoming more confident and more capable of being heard.
So having said that, a few things I can say about me are I’m friendly and helpful. I have a childish nature sometimes. I am extremely contradicting, making up my mind is very hard. I am a bit old fashioned in my values and beliefs. I’ve been told I’m adorable, a really nice person in general, easy to get along with, although my family would disagree with all that!
Most people say I’m naive. I have a hard time believing in ill-intentions in people. It’s not that I don’t know that people let you down, sometimes break your trust, hurt you and leave you broken, I’ve experienced that first hand, I just like to believe that people will do the right thing in the end. If that makes me naive, then so be it! Is that a very naive statement? 😀
