There are three characteristics that I am not ashamed to proclaim I portray:
I am extremely intuitive. This means I’m exceptional at reading individual’s body language and personality traits to determine their characteristics. From this, I am able to gather a pretty good understanding of who a person is simply by talking with them for only a few minutes.
I am a very shy person. They call me an introvert. I prefer to stand back and observe people interacting than to actively participate in a conversation myself.
I am also very compassionate and understanding. I can appreciate someone’s accomplishments while also sympathize with someone’s shortcomings or misfortunes.
The combination of these three characteristics has allowed me to be extremely responsible, mature, independent, and intelligent. I’ve learned many life lessons without having to make the mistake to learn it from. I learn through other people’s experiences.
Regret has no place
I don’t believe an experience, even negative, can cause you to change for the worse. I also don’t believe in regret. An impotent experience only increases intelligence and productivity, eliminates naivety and protects you from dangers in the future.
There’s nothing more valuable than the ability to listen, empathize, and learn from someone else’s experiences. There’s no other way to truly learn and grow as a human being as swift and efficient as this.
If you do not have compassion or intuition, you will truly be deprived of many of life’s beauties.
Learn from others
From a young age I’ve enjoyed listening to my elders and peers who have experiences things I have not. Those who’ve traveled through life’s adventures would provide me their advice on how to be better than they. I would gather advice from different types of people whom learned different lessons from similar adventures. From this I would draw my own conclusions on how I want to live my life and be the best person I am capable of being.
I guess the saying, “it takes a village to raise a child,” is true. Your parents are not the only role models that can provide you guidance in life.
This past weekend I spent a fair amount of time with a few of my elders: My Mother, my Step-Father, my Step-Uncle, and my Step-Grandmother. I was able to learn a few life lessons that I am forever grateful for. I can only dream to one day have the opportunity to influence the lives of others the way my elders have me.
With that I’d like to remind you of the power and importance of conversation. No matter who you converse with, be it an elder, a peer, or an impressionable minor, we all can learn from each other.
In today’s modern world, there’s less time available for leisure and more time spent on life’s responsibilities. The opportunity for casual conversation doesn’t always arise, and when it does, it isn’t always undivided, transparent, or honest. That’s where the beauty of blogging lies.
A blog has the power to influence people across the world that you might never otherwise leverage in-person. So, with that in mind, put forth your wisdom and advice. Don’t be afraid to stand out and be unique. Ultimately, there isn’t room online for followers, only for leaders. Intuitive, compassionate, leaders.
