I have often heard the phrase: You are intimidating. I have never known what to do with that although my inner diva wants to say thank you. I mean I know I am amazing. I work hard, play hard and communicate honestly. That’s awesome right? But underneath it all, that word intimidating is not meant as a compliment. I don’t lose any sleep over it, but sometimes I wonder if I need to make some life changes.
Sometimes you meet someone incredible and this person has all of the bells and whistles you like. Similar interests and tastes, same approach and outlook to life and with just one or two conflicts to keep things interesting but not break the deal. This should be a good thing and for a few encounters it is, but then you see the look on his or her face or you hear the tone is her or his voice: They are overwhelmed and the next conversation is about how intimidated you are.
So…yeah. What’s a girl to do? Should I change my style? Do I need a softer approach? Should I not be so bodacious about life?
Umm, no. If you don’t understand me, then…you probably don’t deserve a spot in Jessye’s world.
Carry on friends.
