Continuing on the subject of introducing myself, I figured I would take some time to talk about three personality traits that I am proud of!
I love learning about myself, and doing soul searching. I also love reading these types of posts because I gain insight on different types of people, and ways that I can better myself.
First off, is my positive attitude! I’m blessed to have the ability to see the silver lining in almost any situation. There was a time in my life when I was constantly getting stuck in my own head. I had these “what if” scenarios running through my mind, and I was just sad. I then decided one day that life is simply too short to be worrying all of the time. I started to actively focus on seeing the good even in bad situations. Eventually it just became second nature, to see the positive in something where someone else only sees a negative.
Second is, the empathy that I feel for others. I care so much about so many different things, and I care deeply. I started asking God on a daily basis to break my heart for what breaks His, and let me tell you…. He did. I was truly not prepared for what that had really entailed, and all of the passion and anger and heart break that came along with it. I am proud of this, because I feel like I am able to have more understanding and compassion which is something that goes a long way.
Last is, my ability to see the good in people. This trait really is a double edged sword, and I’ve have definitely gotten hurt many times because of it. I know that there are horrible things in the world, and that there are some truly evil people, but I choose to see the good, and give the benefit of doubt to everyone. I don’t want to live a life where I think that all people are self centered, rude, or mean so I simply choose to not live like that. If someone is snarky to me I try to take a step back and remind myself, that I don’t know their circumstances, and I don’t know whats going on in their life.
I try to live a life full of love, happiness, and gratitude. I am far from perfect, but I am trying my best.
