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.
