Accurate description:

Miserable wretch incapable of emotion with big brain, no heart. Also soulless. Ruled by logic, kind to animals and the rare human.

Fantasy description:

Well balanced brilliant and stunning winner of Nobel (in one of the sciences) mother of 10, married 40 years.

I'm pensive, and I wish I could be decisive.

I'm physically brave, and I wish I could be emotionally bold.

I'm an introvert who feels like a broken extrovert, and I wish I felt whole.

I can turn a phrase, and I wish I could turn some heads.

I have compassion for others, and I wish I had more for myself.

My passions are in a cage of worry and doubt, and I wish they were free.

I don’t know that I have one primary characteristic.

My nicknames, in my younger years, were ‘Blossom’ and ‘Sunshine.’ That’s through the eyes of others.

What I know about myself is that I value love, faith, and family above all else, and that I’m (like everyone else) still a work in progress.

If we don’t count my roles in family life and Christianity, I’m an artist (singer, songwriter, musician, dancer, entertainer, author, and photographer).

If I have to boil it down to one ‘characteristic,’ I’d probably say that I love a lot... too much sometimes.

I don’t believe I’d wish for a different primary characteristic. I’d just like to be the best possible version of myself, one that’s more Christlike, but that bar is set so high that I know I won’t reach it in this life, even though I wish I could.

Love and All Good Things,

Mahrie.

I'm a street wise no nonsense bottom line person. I can cut you to shreds and eliminate you from my life in two seconds. I'm also honest and very generous with both love and money to my friends.



What I would change is my inability to forgive. When I make up my mind that I'm done with you, you're dead to me. I'm not sure that's a great way to be. There is a friendship I kicked to the curb about two years ago that I miss from time to time. There have been times that I was close to her house that I thought about stopping by, but just couldn't bring myself to do it. That self protection mechanism is strong in me. You know crap on me once shame on you, Do it twice, shame on me.

My primary characteristic throughout my life has been curiosity. I want to know about people and things and to experience all aspects of life, even the more unpleasant ones.

My core values are solid and established but sometimes I think I would have benefitted from a more consistent sense of direction. What motivates me in one decade changes as my life goes on.

I've often thought that, like a butterfly, I must look like I'm flitting but eventually I get the job done. I'm easily distracted by the unfamiliar or the amusing.

For instance; I think my primary characteristic is that I'm a friendly, cordial person. But I've always wished I was more edgy. Alas, I'm as edgy as a piece of bread. LOL
Black-belt sarcasm. I wish I was kind. Or maybe not.

i'm open and friendly, but it can get mistaken for "instant intimacy". it would be nice if actual boundaries were recognized as "okay", and relationships developed in an organic, non-forced way. (right now "No Thank You" interpreted as "Thank You, go right ahead!" <lol>...) or "No? you dared to say the word "No"? pretty awkward

I do see humor and joke about almost everything, sometimes even when it’s inappropred. But I’m full of spunk, have lots of energy. Rarely take no for an answer. Hard head, stubborn are the negative by product, I’m afraid.

Reality: Quiet, always lost in thought, analytical, good sense of humor, creative and an original thinker, enjoys new or strange experiences and artistic works, anxious and self-defeating but acts calm, non-judgmental and a good listener but rarely takes the initiative to help others, the kind of person you might think seems vaguely interesting or offbeat but wouldn't think much about

Ideal: The above but more generally confident (which would probably lead to an easier time socializing) and more actively compassionate

I'm a great assistant, on time, great with following up and following though.

I wish to death that I could write. Doesn't matter what. It could be stories, but especially poems and SONGS. How do they do it??
