Hi there!! These questions are from Candace at Revenge of Eve. Thanks for the fun questions today!!
Do you feel confident in expressing how you feel about particular things? Example: sharing your opinion or protecting your boundaries
Yeah, I think so. But I tend to not do it a lot of the time. With opinions, I disagree with a lot of people on political stuff, and I never want to hurt anyone’s feelings, so I usually opt to not go there. I don’t think it’s about confidence as much as a desire to be a peacemaker (which I can do best by keeping my mouth shut–trust me).
Do you have someone who holds all of your life’s secrets or do you keep everything to yourself?
I’m an open book. However, I do actually carry secrets for other people. I’ve got major secrets on at least four family members, and a handful of other people. And these secrets are about as scandalous as can be. And I even hate or dislike some of these people, but I’m a huge believer in not sharing others’ major secrets.
What is the one quality you look for in a friend?
Well, there are two qualities. The first is mutual appreciation, because I’ve learned the hard way that if someone doesn’t want to be your friend, then it’s not going to happen; and that just has to be accepted. So if I find myself always initiating contact, and that person never gets back to me, then I need to be mindful that the person is on a different wavelength.
The second quality is probably more what you were looking for in your question. I’d say it’s kindness/compassion/gratitude. I tend to like people who either:
- Have had hard lives but have come to see that people matter more than anything; or
- Have had easy lives and are filled with gratitude for all that they’ve been given, especially relationships.
I’d say probably everyone I’m friends with falls into those groups somehow. I guess it’s important to me to have friends who value friendship and relationships.
What is the one quality you possess that you are most fond of in others?
I guess it’d be the same answer as above!
List five words you would use to describe yourself. Only five words.
Oh, this is perfect. I did it over on my social media page. Hold on and let me copy/paste that… here it is! “Hi! In five descriptive words, I’m hostile, irreverent, insane, gorgeous, and compassionate.” HA HA! Yeah, that’s me.
Thank you so much for the fun questions!! 🙂 YAY!
