What People Say About You

Leave a ONE WORD comment that you think describes me. It can only be one word. No more. Then copy and paste this on your wall so that I may leave a word about you. This should be interesting…

When faced with this question, how do you think people would respond for you?  How would you like them to respond? Do you think how you see yourself is how others see you as well?  When I put this out there for me, I was not surprised by the responses I received, but I may have been just a little disappointed.  Here are the responses:

  • REAL
  • Genuine!
  • (Ok, the two above me stole my top answers but luckily I can think of a hundred words) : Refreshing!
  • Intense

I know none of these are bad descriptions, and all of them are totally accurate, but sometimes I wish I were something else.  One of my friends got “spicy”!  Now we all know that is NOT me!  I have been called many things in my life, and lots of them not so pleasant.  The one thing that I do which allows me to live with myself every day is to be true to myself.  All throughout my life there has been unpleasantness in which I was ridiculed and falsely labeled, in the end I was happy to come out the other side feeling like I had always been me, even if people did not like who I was.  So despite feeling like there are more desirable words like “fun” and “happy”, I will take “real, genuine, refreshing, and intense” any day.  The reason for this?  Those words do describe me, and most of the time, I like me.

If you have a word, feel free to leave it in your comment.
