So who are you?
Or who am I?
Does anybody know?
This question seems so simple, doesn’t it? I can see a non-blogger or non-writer answering this like a dating site profile page.
“I like long walks on the beach and moonlit boat rides …”
Many bloggers tend to be a little forward with a response to this question.
“I’m a mother/father. Son/Daughter. Husband/wife to ______. Friend. Own furbabies. Etc.”
Reading many about pages sound like they come from a template. I always like to look at them, but there’s a certain way many blogger pages are written.
So who am I?
I always answer it by saying I am me. I don’t describe myself too well. I find I don’t have the words to describe myself. I have good and bad parts, just like everybody else. I’m not perfect – and not even close. I have opinions, I have beliefs, and I have my own way of going about life.
Just the way I like it.
My interests don’t match a lot of people’s, but there are some that do match up.
For example, I like photography. Many people do, too. But it’s such a broad hobby that there are different interests etc. I get into things like board games and pro wrestling and geocaching and writing random things. There’s so much more, too. I probably have too many hobbies and interests.
The reality of who we are is hard to describe. Even those who can tell you “what” they are, are they really telling you who they are?
Humans are an amazing species. Everybody is unique and that’s what makes life so interesting. We’re not all the same type/size/race/sex etc.
And that’s OK by me.
As for who I am?
I’m me. And I like it that way.
