When I was around 20, I worked as a customer service representative for a major cellular network. I had an area manager who once described me as a “diamond in the rough.” Now, I misunderstood. I thought she was saying I was the only shiny thing among all the unkept grass.
Now, I have been called the following:
And many other words.
Not quite sure what to make of all this. Not sure how it makes me feel. Not sure that it matters.
Here is the thing. I do not seek to be polished and refined. I am not looking for perfection.
I am looking for my own personal truth.
I am looking to be my best self.
I am looking for people who appreciate me for who I am, and who like who I am. As far as the rest goes… What you see is what you get. I am not full of surprises. I promise you don’t have to wonder where you stand with me. Just ask me. I’ll let you know.
