WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOURSELF THAT YOU WORRY OTHERS WILL STRUGGLE TO ACCEPT?
This is an invitation to write a list of all the complaints my family has had about me for years. Ha!
There is plenty I love about me – it took a lot of struggle to be authentically myself. I no longer worry about others – that thinking got me into a lot of trouble and therapy. What others think of me is none of my business is not just a saying, it is one of my core beliefs.
- I am sensitive, empathetic and passionate which sometimes brings cursing, shouting or tears.
- I am highly intuitive and feel things deeply and often I just know the truth. And when I know – I’m right. Always.
- I don’t put up with lies and bullshit. I’ve been bullied and gaslit for most of my life. I’m done. I’ve gone along not out of ignorance but of courtesy. No more. I will call you out.
- I will always err on the overarching right thing to do regardless of how uncomfortable my actions will make me – or others.
What about you? What is it about you that you love that makes other people uncomfortable?
I enjoy answering tough questions if for no other reason to challenge myself to dig deep and tap into what I know to be true to my core, for me, no bullshit; and, I want to encourage others to show up and answer their own tough questions. In the midst of packing and moving in mid-October 2020, I got an email from BestSelf™ about an ICEBREAKER “Deeper Talk” deck. A deck? Hello? I’m IN! This deck contains 150 questions split across 6 different categories: Beliefs, Courage, Dreams, Exposed, Life Lessons and Self-Awareness. How tough can it be? We’re about to find out. 150 weeks of answers. (I’m so much better with giving the answers than asking the questions.) I do hope you share your answers with me! #letshaveaconversation #deepertalkdeck
