365 Days of Self Discovery: Feelings & Emotions

Day 62

Would you say you are an optimistic person?

  • Honestly, yes I am. However, I am also a realist, so I think things for what they are. Being optimistic but also being realistic helps me to see the bigger picture and pay attention to small details and to not get too far over my head.

How would you want other people to describe you?

  • There’s no magical words that I would want people to say about me because I’m far from perfect & not everyone will like me.  If anything, I’d like people to be able to say that I’m charismatic, open-minded/least bit of judgmental, understanding and someone that is positive. That I try to look at the good in people to better know them and understand them, so that I can form my opinion. I want people to be able to say that I’m honest & trustworthy, confident, yet, humble and blunt but doesn’t go out of her way to intentionally cause harm to people; a realist to say the least — optimistic but it doesn’t hinder my ability to see the truth. As an added bonus, I would love if someone mentioned that I was smart (wise) possibly due to my experiences and educational background, passionate about important topics that hold some form of relation to her life or encourage people to come together for a greater good/purpose & treats people equally no matter their status quo. One of the most important aspects I would want someone to describe as me is someone who is always willing to learn, and be taught — her pride doesn’t hinder her ability to gain more knowledge in subjects that she is not well-informed in or needs more work in. 

I believe all of us would want people to say something good about us, about who we are, about their first impression of us upon meeting us and speaking to us. This specific question made me think of when the day comes I am to be buried, I want people who attend my funeral to say things about me that aren’t dull (i.e nice, friendly, caring, etc) because those are things we all hope to be, but I want people who have known me to know that I had so much more to me than what lied on the surface & so much more to give than what I was able to sometimes. I don’t think I am special, and need an applause, however, I do want to leave this earth knowing people actually took the time to get to know me. 

It’s your turn, tell me how would you want someone to describe you & leave in the comments.
