How about words you use to describe your self?

When people meet you for the first time and/or when you meet others for the first time what do you want them to know about you? What do you want to know about them? Are you what you do for a living? Are you what your family status is? Are you where you are from? Are you what your personal beliefs are in a higher power (your religion)? What are some of the first questions people ask when they meet you?

I am often tempted to answer these first meeting questions with something shocking or unexpected. For some reason it bothers me to have the old standard replies. Maybe we should explain ourselves in a way we would like to be viewed. Or who we would like ourselves to be. For example, at the time of this writing, I am basically “self-employed”. I am in the enlightenment stage. (lol) Another words I am, once again, working on another certification, Internet Marketing. Wow, what a plethora of information that constantly changes. I should like to say in answer to the question what do you do for a living – – – I do a variety of tasks in a variety of fields. What do you want me to be doing?

What WORDS encompass a good representation of who you are? What you do for a living? What your hobbies are? How would you begin to define yourself? Of course it depends on the situation. If you were on a job interview you might not tell the interviewer the same thing you would tell someone you were meeting at a party. Or maybe you would. Interviewer: “Tell me a little bit about yourself” – – – I really need to practice my response for that questions. I am always tempted to say something like “I am whomever you need me to be!”

Words – We Reach With Words. We express ourselves with words. And unfortunately we wish we could eat our words. Once they are out we cannot take them back. Hmmm. Should we put more thought into our words?

When people meet you for the first time and/or when you meet others for the first time what words do you use to describe who you are? What do you want to know about them? Are you what you do for a living? Are you what your family status is? Are you where you are living. Your hobbies. Are you what your spiritual believes are? Your political affiliations? Are you honest? Do you describe who you are in the eyes of others or your own.  Are you someone different depending on who you are meeting? What do people REALLY want to know about you and how far are you willing to go to tell them. Let’s face it there are somethings about your self or your affiliations not all people would understand or look favorably on.

I had a professor and a few other people advise me, “You are an actor on a stage when you walk in the room for an interview.” You rehearse and practice your words for this important chance at a job. You read them carefully and try to figure out what magic words they are looking for. Why? Why can’t both the interviewer and the interviewee just be honest? Wouldn’t it save a lot of time, money, and energy if we could just be real with each other? Words, Words, Words… The Words must match the actions.

There is a fine line between being honest and being socially acceptable. Honesty, humility, openness, “being real”, there is a time and a place for these things. And as the saying goes, “Some things are better left unsaid.” Words, it’s all about words. Words you say, words you write, words you read. Let’s all try to use our words to the best of our abilities. Let’s try to express thoughts, feelings, knowledge with REAL, HONESTY, quality WORDS, words that encourage, uplift, when possible.

PS: I know there are other ways to express or communicate feelings, thoughts passions, but words are the primary way we communicate. Lets value them.

PPSS: That reminds me check out some really excellent visual expressions by an artist I have come to know and love at a “WORK IN PROGRESS” website: www.DoloresHibbard.WordPress.com.

Thanks for reading. Please share some words with us. Most of the pages on this website have a place for sharing comments. But the main area is the page on top titled “Blogs & Suggestions”.
