Taking Care In What You Do
I have been told that I have a do not care approach when interacting with other people. I do and do not care depending on the situation and if I can relate to that situation. I am either “on” or “off” and need to locate the “dimmer”. I am engaged or not so much, but that does not mean I do not care.
I tend to cross my arms! I cross my arms in order not to talk, especially with my hands!
I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve and let my emotions rip! I have 2 things I carry with me; rejection and guilt. I need to carry these 2 things instead; humility and humbleness! I can be reactive and direct and go back and forth in being objective and subjective.
Kiss Me You Fool – Humorous!
I am a passionate being. The problem is finding the COM in passion to approach with compassion when it comes to connecting, communicating and interacting with other people. I still struggle in finding empathy at times. I have a hard time giving myself compassion let alone other people, especially with people I do not know well!
Passionate and Compassionate
I am curious and that gets me into T-R-O-U-B-L-E with a capital T at times! My defense tactic is to ask questions and the more the better. I feel it puts the conflict and confrontation on simmer and opens the flow of communication and discussion. However, I have experienced backfires or misfires with this approach because answering a question with a question is not always the best!
I am not a patient person and that really reflects when it comes to guiding, teaching or training other people! I want to give support and encouragement as well as motivation and inspiration to others. I enjoy seeing people get it and do better. However, I take the wrong approach in going about it at times. Less frustration and more appreciation!
I do not always know what to say let alone how and when to say it! Then I need to tune into a person’s eye contact and body language. I have a hard time reading myself let alone other people! Then you add everything else that is going on around you. I know I am going to screw something up or be screwed in the process!
Tied Into Knots!
I am working on stopping before I react and spew out my words as well as emotions! I am trying to find the compassion and be a little more complimentary. I am finding new ways to express my curiousity to show that I do care. When I feel like I am losing it I take deep breathes and count to 10!
