“The flaws you see don’t fully represent me. If they’re nice, I’ll approach them in the same manner, and if they’re mean, I just kill them with kindness.”
Philadelphia, PA
I express myself by communicating with people. I like talking with others and getting to know them. I like telling people what I like, my hobbies, what kind of person I am.

Instead of letting people figure out who I am, I tell them who I am. For them to get to know me, I like to do things that are uplifting and many social activities like working out, singing, dancing, hanging out with friends but at times I can be introverted.

Sometimes, I enjoy spending time alone. In most of my friendships, I’m usually the host of the hangout and I’m usually the one that bring others together.

I care about the people around me. I’m bible study teacher, so I care my students. I’m a very verbal person and sometimes people tell me I’m too blunt.

Because I’m very vocal in my speech, I do have to change my speaking patterns to fit someone else’s speaking style and I find that limiting but not restricting.

I do have some friends who are more quiet, so I kind of have to tone it down a bit. So if they’re quiet, I’ll approach them in a quiet way, or if they’re excited, I’ll be excited as well.

If I’m in a professional setting, I’m not going to be as goofy as I usually am, but overall I don’t find that to be too restricting. At times, I do question if I’m just acting and wearing a mask or if I’m really representing myself well to others. Nonetheless. I do manage the way I talk, depending on who I’m talking to.

Sometime, it’s about matching others’ personality and feeding off of each other. One of the things I find in talking with people is to be honest with others.

If someone think of me in a way that misrepresents me, I would just be confrontational with that person, saying that, that’s not who I am. The flaws you see don’t fully represent me. If they’re nice, I’ll approach them in the same manner, and if they’re mean, I just kill them with kindness.
