Being You : LUSENET : Naked Eye : One Thread

Do you think your exterior - the you that people see - is representative of all the strange, profound, silly, contemplative, angry, mean-spirited, kind, generous (you get the drift) qualities that you know you possess.

If you were an actor would you say you play yourself well, I guess is the question.

Overall..yes I think I "play" myself very well. People say that my moods are written all over my face..try as I might to hide my feelings sometimes..they can read me.. BUT..the mean-spirited thoughts...that sometimes come into my head..that I am ashamed to have..I don't let them out. Except on a very rare occasion when I slip..and then people..(this occurs at work mostly) are surprised that I would say a nasty thing..for I am known as "such a nice person" I am not one to partake in catty know the critical bitchy women..I alway think (there but for the grace of God ..go I). "Live and let live" "Each to there own." "do unto others as you would be done by" You get the drift... Cheers, Carol

its impossible for me to hide how im feeling. i have one of those faces.

i havent yet decided if this is a good or bad thing.

i wouldnt mind being able to _choose_ what gets transmitted to other people but, really, im not surprised i chose this expressive face as it pretty much sums up my personality.

everything's right there on my sleeve.

Hiya Catherine!

On the outside it seems I appear uber-conservative to people. They're always saying things like "Oh my god! I can't believe you just said that!" or "*You* have a tattoo?" I guess on the outside I look like a nerdy kind of gal and I think I'm cutting edge. Sheesh. So no, I don't portray myself well at all. Maybe one day the inside and the outside will catch up with each other. Who will be the true me?
