Some things you likely never wanted to know about DizzyDezzi but will be afraid you asked.
I like me.
I really like me.
I like that I’m funny. I like that I’m sarcastic. I like that I’m creative. I like that I’m talented. But there are three main things that I like about myself more than the fact that I make an awesome chili or a mean mozzarella grilled cheese.
I like that I’m a nice person.
I would be lying if I said that I didn’t sometimes feel like slashing somebody’s tires or punching a bully in the face, but being a nice person means treating others the way that you want to be treated and not saying anything if you can’t say anything nice.
It’s easier for me to polite to people than it is to express anger, even if it’s deserved. If I do take the time to express my anger to another individual, it is only after holding my tongue for a prolonged period of time and no longer being able to repress myself. Then, I feel bad, afterwards (even if they deserved it).
I like that I am inspired by other people or by asking “what if?”.
Sometimes my creative side is influenced by simple suggestion of other people. For instance, a lot of my crochet is inspired by someone else’s favorite thing and because it’s not my thing, it’s more challenging.
Or, I’ll ask myself, “what if I try doing this ‘traditional’ thing, this way instead of that. Sometimes my creations fall short, but when they pan out, it fills me with pride and a sense of accomplishment.
I like that I don’t make promises that I can’t keep.
Being a compassionate person, whenever someone asks for my help, I do my best to support them in the best way I can.
But, sometimes, as much as I’d love to do something, in my heart, for someone else, I just can’t. I would rather say, “no,” and try to make it than to say, “yes” and let myself and everyone else down.
I don’t like letting people down. If I have it (an ear, a shoulder, an opinion, a dollar), I’m happy to give, but if I don’t, I won’t lie to make someone feel better. I’ll say, “let me sleep on it…” before I will give a straight, “yes”. I don’t want to let anyone down, but also in a selfish kind of way, I also don’t want to make myself miserable, if I can help that, not even for a friend.
Not all of these are traits that I was born with, but they are traits that I am proud of. I’ve done my best, as a mom, to instill these traits in my own child.
