I saw this graphic on a friend’s Facebook page this morning:
My four words were sweet (really?), eloquent (I hope so), restless (I know so), and charismatic (interesting). Honestly, I run from being described as “sweet.” Not that I go out of my way to kick puppies or anything, but to me, “sweet” is synonymous with “doormat.” Maybe I’m stereotyping sweet people here, but when I hear someone described as sweet, my mind conjures a vacuous person who isn’t assertive, witty, or original. I don’t think of people as sweet. They’re kindhearted, generous, naive, or just plain clueless. Sweet is long golden-blonde ringlets with a pink bow.
I get the restless thing. Maybe it’s just adult ADHD, though. Either way, I’m comfortable with that word. Eloquent and charismatic – I’d like to think I’m both of those, but I don’t think a person can honestly declare herself either. But I’ll try anyway.
I’m eloquent and charismatic.
There. Was that believable? Yeah, I thought so.
So what are you? Spill – I want to know.
