Looks can be misleading.If you were to ask my friend Amanda to describe me, she would tell you that I’m an angel. This is how she introduces me to people, “This is Kristian, she’s my angel.” To which I just smile and politely shake their hand, but I used to hide behind my hair because I’m far from angelic!
However, I remember the first time we went dancing at a bar. We were in our early 20’s, and I was on the dance floor, allowing the music to flow through my bands and moving my body in time to the beat. I was also rapping, and I looked up at my friend, and she was standing there, jaw on the floor. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone look so shocked! Ha ha, it’s quite comical now. I remember being utterly confused, thinking I had done something wrong, but then came the excited squeal! “Oh my gosh, my angel can dance, and she raps!”
I have shocked quite a few people who have perceived me as shy, quiet, and innocent. Shy? Not really. Quiet? Only until you get to know me. Innocent? Not so much! Although, I suppose it really depends on the subject.
Do you think your outward appearance is a fair representation of the real you?
- No. Personally, I don’t think I’m very outwardly attractive, but I do think I have a a good heart and a nice spirit. I genuinely care about people, genuinely, and the more and more I find myself, the more I find how rare that trait really is, and it makes me very sad. The world would be a prettier place if more people were more concerned about the welfare of others. There’s not too many people who get me, I’ve felt like an outcast for most of my life, and now I know why, and it’s not a bad thing, not at all. However, I think if my outward appearance was a fair representation of the real me, I’d be pretty.
What about you? Do you think your outward appearance is a fair representation of the real you?
