Self Proclamation and Friendship
I don’t like talking about myself. Ok that is a lie, I love it in certain circumstances. What I dislike is talking about myself to someone I just met. I much rather hear about them. I feel less intrusive that way.
The one question that always stumps me, is, what do you like to do? I find myself searching for something to say that accurately described me. There is an array of activities I enjoy, however I don’t like to be defined by the pastime of life. The mind extends beyond what one likes to do, and is a more appropriate measure of character. (Be aware I am not talking about taking action, but activities…) However, in order to get t a level of understanding one’s mind, you must create a intimate relationship.
I want people to enjoy me, for who I am. Today I felt as if it didn’t matter if people did not like me, because I like who I am. I have worked hard at becoming a woman I am happy being. I have gone through mental, emotional, and physical changes to form this mind, heart and body. Granted, as part of my nature, I will always want friends. I hope to always maintain lasting friendships, but if what I can offer as a friend is not something that you appreciate, by all means move on and find someone you do like.
I know friendships can be casual, or intimate. And if you are only attracted to part of my personality I do not mind, but I make no promise to change or to not change. I finally have gotten over “coming to terms” with who I am, and am happy with the person I have worked so hard on becoming.
This comes from all you who support me in being myself. If it were not for you, and for you allowing me to communicate my ideas no matter how strange or awkward or even wrong. Because expressing ideas and communication is a universal practice I fully support.
I really wish I had a fashion blogger friend who lived in the same town as me. I have yet to find one. I think it would be fun to talk about fashion, blah blah blah…
I no longer hide the fact that I am a blogger. The fact that I am able to network, build friendships, learn technology, maintain my own website, share my ideas, express creativity, motivate, inspire what have you, and on occasion write something that touches someone else, no matter where they live or their status, is all part of an accomplishment I am proud of.
Did you notice my hair is down? I haven’t worn it down in ages. I know it doesn’t make that much of a difference, but it is nice to have it a length that doesn’t try to convince me to chop it off every week.
How do you feel about everything I posted today? Do you feel like you have had to work on becoming who you are? Or have you and will you always be the person you were born as? And do you have a fashion blogger friend in your town? I really would like to know if it is as exciting as I assume…
Have a good Memorial Day, and don’t forget to enter my giveaway if you haven’t yet. :)
