I have a free-spirited nature.
Time and experience have taught me well.
I am proud of what I have evolved into. I have one outstanding feature: My good character. I draw upon this inner strength during times of adversity. This practice has induced self-reliance and the ability to resolve issues within me.
I am relieved that my temperament flourished despite untimely circumstances. As a result, I am an uncommonly humble woman and an undeniable authenticity defines my spirit.
I have decided to be utterly transparent concerning my peers. I am inclined to portray myself as candid, open, honest and upfront.
I’m not aggressive and generally don’t initiate friendships. I allow others to establish their boundaries (boundaries are a weak area for me so this is a future blog topic).
People who have problems are naturally drawn to me. I’m not sure if they sense compassion or understanding. Maybe they recognize genuine concern. It’s presumably a variety of factors. Anyway, I appreciate everyone who comes into my life. I love helping people. I am so happy when my friend makes better decisions because of one of our talks. I like reasoning with people and giving them options.
I have fun reading and commenting on everyone’s blogs. There are so many interesting people. I’ve enjoyed who I have met so far and I look forward to future ongoing interactions.
