Know Yourself

Thought of today:
If I always hide from the truth, I must be enjoying the company of falsehood

Ten things I did not know about myself but had to learn from others:
1- I’m very friendly and sociable, yet not easy to reach.
2- I’m very simple, yet very complicated.
3- I could be as stubborn as a mule.
4- I live in a utopian world that only consists of me ( always spacey)
5- I am an extremist.
6- I love praise but can cope with criticism
7- I’m short ( don’t know if 5’4 is considered short)
8- I’m very tough when it comes to management ( Napoleon style)
9- At times I could be unfair.
10- I am beautiful.

    One & a half questions please, if I may:
    – Over what length of time did you conclude to think of yourself as you listed (I don’t mean age, btw) & did you ever try to change any of what you mentioned or just thought I am happy the way I am?

    I did not conclude that dear, I heard it from others and more than one source, and as unbelieving as it seemed to my ears. I had to ponder and reflect. Why did they have these ideas about me? Then they must have seen something that I did not see. Some of the things I tried to change in my personality, some of other things were too late; like being tough in management for example coz I always thought I was understanding and lenient but firm in my decisions which could have been sometimes unfair without me realizing it.
    that’s why it’s good to know what others think about you.

    It’s good that you have people around you who can tell you the truth about yourself, and that you can appreciate the feedback! 😀

    Not every one around you would tell you the truth, therefore when someone does, you have to be receptive no matter how painful that might be. I know a lot of people who wouldn’t hear of it. if someone is an honest and true friend he/she would tell me the truth, and I should be thankful.

    Thanks sweetie, I’d like to think of myself like that little green Madonna, but then I might be wrong.

    So does that mean I’m not short? Well tell that to the ones who said I was 😉

    Oh you’re so sweet; you boosted my morals since I can’t do anything about my height

    A handsome, TALL, young man with hazel eyes and short, light brown, spiky style hair. Does that answer your question?

    Peachy peach
    Thanx sweetie, I’m beginning to like my shortness which means “no more ka3ab 3ali for me” 🙂

    Hi Purg,
    Not mind me asking please,
    you said you live in NL, is the first letter of your name I and last Al-3?
    Confession: I am really hoping you’d say yes… because you have his unique way of saying things & it reminds me so much of him & he is one friend I think the world of… is it? 🙂
    note: & 7asafah if no 😦

    I tend to agree with DJ – and it is a good quality you have where you can accept other people’s criticism as well. Not easy.
