Diamonds are a girl’s best friend. What about the rough?

1367350149_coal_diamondOkay. Want a blast from the past?

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:

  • Real
  • Raw
  • Authentic
  • Honest
  • Spontaneous
  • Crass
  • Rude
  • Silly
  • Funny
  • Vulnerable
  • Humble

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.

  2. I love rough diamonds, by the way as there’s beauty in the unpolished stone. I think your list describes me to a great extent and I do care what people think, I just do what I want anyway as long as I’m not hurting other people. I don’t see the reason we need these descriptors. There’s only one “you” and one “me” and that’s why it’s called The World and not The Primordial Soup when we were all carbon compounds with no form or substance.
