As part of my blog challenge, today’s post was to be titled “write something that someone told you about yourself that you never forget”, its a bit of a long title isn’t it so I thought I would narrow it down a bit.
This topic is quite an interesting one really and it made me think of the things that people have said about me and how those opinions may or may not have affected me.
Over the past few months I have noticed how people are quite blatant with their opinions of me. When I don’t know someone or am I’m a night out for example, I am quiet. Not because I’m scared to talk, but because I’m listening, I am gathering my opinions of these people who I am with and people seem to take some sort of offence to this.
Other options are with my close group of friends, maybe because I am too independent nowadays that I have different opinions. I am a positive person and I prefer to listen to others than to argue. I don’t do confrontation.
I thought I’d list (for my own personal mental state) the things that I have heard about myself from others lately. Some are nice for me to hear and some are in my opinion so wrong:
- Too responsible
- Up tight
You will see that they are a mixture of words being used to describe me. Some are nice and some are just so wrong about me.
At the time I take it to heart, then give me a couple of hours I’m like this:
This is just an amazing quote. Why let others opinion determine how you feel about yourself. You know the true you, and the true personality.
