Saturday Questions #36

If anyone is looking for a good way to describe me, take notes. Okies, so maybe the pine needles bit is a little too far, but I’d love for someone to describe me so passionately.

But really, I’d want people to describe me as kind, sweet, funny, caring, creative, patient, a good friend. Things that I can control.

I once read a thing on Tumblr on how to compliment a girl, and I think it works for this as well.

It says to mix words like “rad” or “awesome” with something a woman can control about herself. “Rad earrings”. She probably spent lots of time picking them out, so that’s a great way to compliment her.  So I’d want someone to describe me the same way. Like focus on things I can control – like how I treat other people, how I react to tough situations, etc. That’s how I’d like someone to describe me.

How about you? How would you like people to describe you?

  1. At some point in life, when you let your hair go gray, you find ways to not worry so much about what others think – and you love yourself a whole lot for it. On a side note, is it sad that when you said pine needles, I was drawn to the picture in the meme, and then the glass she was holding, and then I assumed it was Tangueray and Tonic, and the girl sleeping next to her was dreaming of a martini?! Yowzers…!

  2. I’ve been described a few times as fearless or ‘badass’ and I was highly flattered. I have anxiety and it’s sometimes really bad so I felt like those people were telling me that I was doing good, that despite feeling like I’m constantly hiding in fear, I was still doing cool stuff. But like you said, being complimented over something you have control over or being told you are kind/caring, feels fantastic. I often joke to my husband that if he should compliments something I have no control over, it should be my brain, not my butt! 😉

    • Haha! Idk being told you have a nice butt is quite the compliment! Mine is a textbook butt. Not good at all! 😂

      I’ve been told I’m brave! And you’re right, it’s a great feeling!! Especially when it comes after doing something I was really scared to do.

  3. I guess a good friend, good wife, good mother. I think it’s “how you are” not “how you look” that counts and those three things stem from “how you are”.
