I really like who I am even if no one around me does. Sometimes I doubt myself and sometimes I'm a fullblown "HI! HOW ARE YOU TODAY!? I ONLY MET YOU FOR THREE SECONDS BUT I'M GONNA DWELL ON SO MANY POSITIVE THINGS ABOUT YOU!" I love solitude, but I also like socializing. Though there are some times where I don't wanna talk with anyone not because I'm sad but because I don't feel like it. I can be a happy puppy or a sad whiner, but I like both sides of who I am as a person. My point of this post though was what do you like about yourself and why. And if you don't like anything about yourself and you wanna share what you wanna change about yourself,I'd be more than happy to read it! Thanks for commenting! ^_^

Hi J. I like the fact that I try to take the time to listen (or read) what someone has to say. It is important not to talk sometimes and just listen. Thats what I like about myself. What I would change is my past but that cannot be done so I guess I am out of luck.

It's true that the past can not be changed but its also important to know that broken hearts have broken crayons that love to color. I'm going to tell an interesting story. A group of trees came to sit down with each other but one tree was broken off from the group. The trees always found it strange how the tree was still standing till one day they asked the tree how he could be standing. The tree smiled and said " It is not being alone that makes me sad, but being surrounded by the wrong people that makes me alone." The lessons the tree had kept his limbs from falling. Before the tree disappeared he whispered that he could live on in memories and how fond he thought of what he thought of the past determined how the dancing crayons would stand in his present form. And the tree's smile never faded. I know that story sounds too happy- go- lucky but I can't help it. I think our sorrow is just a warning sign that keeps others close from us from getting hurt now that we know what pain is like ourselves. Thanks for commenting!

Shyness is such a beautiful quality. A lot of quotes identify shy people as humble souls. ^_^
