1. I have a positive outlook. I actually credit this one to my Mom though. When we were growing up, she always made sure that we looked at the bright side of things, that there’s no point in being a negative Debbie Downer.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m a realist, but a realist that puts a positive spin on things. 🙂
2. Empathy. I am a very empathetic person. This one bites me in the butt very often though because I do see both sides of things. It’s hard to stay mad at someone when you can see their side of things, and where they’re coming from. This also means that I basically have “TALK TO ME” written across my forehead. (Get this from my Momma too). I’ve had cashiers at Walmart tell me all about their divorce, loss of baby, horrible marriage, etc etc. It all stemed from, “I’m good… how are you?” People see me and instead of saying, “Oh, I’m good” or whatever your quick response is… they say, “I’m good…. I blah blah blah life story” I don’t mind (most days).
3. Talkative. This kind of goes hand in hand with Empathy up there. Overall I am usually a pretty talkative person. I mean, I can strike up conversation with most anyone, just standing around. I had a 10 minute conversation/vent about the cost of food with an elderly lady the other day.
A bit before that, I had a conversation with an elderly man about my nose ring, and tattoos where he rolled his sleeves up, and showed off his too.
There you go, guys. 3 traits that I like about me.
