A little bit more about me…
I am naturally very shy. Have been since I was a kid.
I love debates. I debated in university in some courses. I loved hearing different opinions and looking at situations with a different set of eyes. Seeing someone else’s point of view.
I believe two theories can be right at the exact same time.
I have a chem and math degree. Those are separate.
I took electives in university that would teach me more about life.
I believe education is very important and can solve many things. I believe in giving opportunities for education.
I am doing my part-time MBA in the fall while continuing to work. However, I may not do this. I guess I have to have a chat with my illness.
I am extremely attentive. I pay attention to everything.
I like listening to stories that people tell and that have made them strong.
I believe in using our voices. I only speak on issues that I have experienced in my life. I don’t use my voice for issues I have not experienced because that is for the people who have experienced those issues. Their voices need to be heard, not mine.
I set boundaries for many reasons. Mostly to maintain my sanity.
I love being open about my illness. I am open for many reasons. One being to let people know that having a mental illness is okay and nothing is wrong with you if you do have a mental illness (I feel like this is a big inner misconception).
I know we are all built with strength and resilience. I saw it in myself and I see it in everyone I meet.
I like life some days but not all days.
I am imperfect. And love that I am full of flaws.
I am not on this earth to prove anything to anyone. I am here to be me. And I am okay with that.
I feel like “a little bit about me” may be a series. We are very complex, aren’t we?
