Authentically Me. What Is That?
I have come to realize thanks to the wisdom of a friend that the one thing someone I feel deeply connected to wants from me is to be authentically me in order for them to come forward. What is that exactly? It has been a journey to get that clear. Here it is.
If I were to put it in a nut shell it is this. I am sweet and sassy, plenty of sassy and spice. I do not suffer stupid or fools gladly, nor snowflakes nor liberal progressive ideology. I have no illusions of a world of total love and kumbabya, not wearing rose colored glasses. I want to dedicate my life to the arts including Italian and sacred arts. I want to do so with people I feel deeply connected to, including certain other artists that have inspired me in ways they can not even imagine. I love my my Italian heritage, want to make sure it is always a part of my life and my arts. I want to be a major part of that community, including the faith community, which for an Italian/Italian American means Catholic. I also want to understand the world and faith of Jesus his family, the early apostles. I am someone who loves kids, animals, gets on quite will with them and loves to be both by herself to create etc… and also other times with people, enjoying a nice meal and just lots of fun. I am someone who has very sensitive psychic connection to things and sometimes it is a blessing and other times, ayyy ayyy ayyy. I wear my heart on my sleeve pretty much, and hate to have to play games, which is why I never liked dating because it seemed to me it was all games and I have little patience for that. Tell me what you feel, what you want and if I am on the same page great, if not we part ways. I can give tough love as necessary, even with my mom, love her. I have no patience for games, none, especially not in the romance department and relationships. I also little patience for PC, for modern extreme nutty feminists and all that as well. In addition am someone who wants a life partner etc… who has solid conservative values and worldview. There you have it.
If anyone wants to know who I am authentically this is, this is me. You can take it or leave it and I have to afford he same courtesy if I am going to have someone in my life. If anyone wanted to know who I am, this sums it up.
