    The best of you

    What do others say is your best character trait? And do you agree or disagree with that?

    People are always telling me I talk too much and I'm too loud. Guess it's true. But really, I can be quiet, ALOT.

    Oh and someone anonymously said this about me:

    "you are a really sweet guy although you can be a toughie. And the only time you are a toughie is when you feel you have to defend yourself. I know in my heart that you are really sincere and thoughtful of others and that you do have a big heart. "

    Apparently my best trait is that I am a sucker! I hate to tell people no when they ask or hint around that they need help. Often times it ends up putting me in a bind.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    People tell me all the time what my best trait is, but I keep forgetting what they tell me so it's not my memory.

    I just asked my wife and she said, "You're best trait is your kindness."

    Of course, all that really shows is how kind she is.
    Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.

    My determination. Best way to sum it up is even in the most effed up situations I will keep moving forward if I feel I must, regardless of how scared or physically hurt I am.

    At the best, this got me and my best friend through a very nasty blizzard in the rocky mountains....before the snow hit, I saw the windspeed at 65mph on one o fhte windspeed signs....then suddenly all I could see was white....that stretch only had guardrails at the curves.....and I could not see a thing. At that point I figured out to feel the edge of the road, and ride it until I can see a large dark semi truck pass, and then I try my luck following it. Fortunately, one did pass....and following it got us out of there. I'm pretty sure if we tried to pull over we would have froze to death out there....the blizzard did not stop for days, and the way the wind was throwing the car, I was afraid it would be slid off of a cliff edge if I left it parked. My friend was amazed at how I kept my cool....in all honesty I was freaking out hard, but some part of me seemed to hold it back long enough to get through it.

    This is also my weakness, since this is how I made a broken ankle into a bum ankle that ruined any chances of me doing any competitive running again....I ran over a mile on it...mostly out of pride....I refused to drop out of a race, for anything.

    I guess you can re-word it as "Catatonic is too freaking stubborn to back down"

    People tell me they like my sense of humour. Can't agree or disagree, but my workmates laugh at my stupidity, so I guess my humour works with them.

    my smile and my laugh.. I do agree.. I light up and come alive around people and really enjoy making them laugh. They say im very witty.. but this is once they get passed the accent, so basically it means I get away with saying any sarcasm I want with a huge smile and they think im just being cute until one day... they get pas the accent and realise Ive been quite the wise a..

    Sorry, Siu, you said character trait, not physical trait. My bad.


    The best thing about me has to be my modesty. I'm sure that I'm way more modest that most people on earth. In fact, I can say I'm probably more modest than anyone who ever lived. If there was a category in the Guiness Book of World Records in modesty, I would win that category hands down.

    I really can't say enough about how modest I am, so instead I will commision a portrait in oil to illustrate the undeniable truth to all who shall behold it's (modest) splendour.

    Hmmm... I'm gonna comment here and offer you some advice LowCel.

    Your comment reminds me that I once had the same issue. Years ago I learned a valueable lesson and it goes like this:

    Many people, even people you think are your friends, see "kindness as a weakness." Some are aware that they see kindness as a weakness, others are not. Many co-workers are great at taking advantage of kindness in other co-workers.

    Here's how I learned to tell if someone, especially a supposed "friend" sees my kindness as a weakness and takes advantage of it (intentionally or not).

    The next time someone asks for a favor or needs something, do this: Stop for a second and say "let me see." Ask yourself if you can fit this into your schedule without adversely affecting your life. DONT!! I repeat Don't answer yes or no on the spot. Tell them you'll check what you've got going on and get back to them. If they become agitated or act like you are being unfair, they see your kindness as a weakness and are (either consciously or unconsciously) taking advantage of it. If they say, "O.K. let me know"...then you take a few hours or a day to think about what your schedule and free time is and respond accordingly. Remember!! They should not get upset with you, since THEY are asking for the favor/help. If they do, they are not really your friend. This works great with co-workers too. Instead of saying, "I'll do that right now", I now say, "When is this due by?" and when they say tomorrow or in an hour, I know they are trying to just get me to bail them out and cover their butts. If they say "next week" and I say "O.K. I can have this for you after XYZ project of mine is done.." and they get pissed. I remind them that I have my own projects to complete and that I'm helping them out. Then I add them to my "Trying to take advantage of my kindness list" for future reference.

    Get where I'm coming from? Very quickly you can identify people in both your personal and professional life that see yuor kindness as a weakness a exploit it.
    Just Do It..
