This is going to sound a bit odd, but you know how people often write you notes to tell you thanks for just being you? This may sound a little prideful and i don't mean it to come out that way, but this semester more than any, I've received numerous random notes or had a lot of comments on the good qualities and aspects of my character. Which i definitely appreciate. Who doesn't appreciate notes that tell them how great they are? It definitely makes me feel like I'm doing something right in my life, either that or people just felt like they needed to lie to make me feel good about myself. Who knows? But sometimes, i wish people would just be completely honest and tell me all of my faults. I mean, wouldn't it be nice to know what people DON"T like about you? I think it would, then I'd know the things about myself i really should chance or work on being better at. I know that sounds weird but i would LOVE to know the things people hate about me, or at least think are annoying. We know ourselves to a certain extent, but we've never truly experienced ourselves as other people. Sometimes i think if i were to meet me, I'm not sure i would really like me. But like i was saying before, we don't really know ourselves from an outside perspective, so it's hard to really criticize yourself and figure out what aspects you really should try and do better on. Random thoughts, i don't know where this came from.
