April AToZ Challenge Day 9- I is For I

I thought that I haven’t spoken enough about myself in the previous posts so for the letter “I”, I have decided to talk about myself. Yes, my I is for I :P

This post will be the toughest because I can write pages on a topic but when I have to write a few lines about myself, my mind goes blank. That’s why you wouldn’t see an “About Me” section on my blog too. To make it easier for me I have decided to list out a few things about myself that I like and few traits that I would like to change in me. Kind of like doing a self-discovery J

So a few things that I like about myself-

I don’t judge people easily. This used to irk my mother much because whenever she wanted to gossip about the neighboring aunty, I used to defend the aunty saying that she may have her reasons as to why she was behaving in a particular way. I believe in “Live and let other’s live” theory.

I like that despite the cynicism around the world, I have still not lost my ability to feel and respond kindly. I don’t believe in giving alms to beggars, especially people who are fit and can earn by doing hard work. But when I hear about a genuine case in dire need of help, I don’t think twice before rushing in for help.

And a few things that I would want to change in myself-

I am painfully shy and an introvert. Although I love glancing at photos uploaded in social media of Blogger meets, I am kind of hesitant to go there myself. But one day I will build enough courage to go to a Blogger meet. I know I want to J

I get depressed easily. Whenever I read or hear about anything bad happening in the world, it colors my thoughts darkly. I keep pondering over it until it starts affecting me negatively. That’s why I avoid reading depressing stuff.

I am short tempered, but I rarely show my wrath to anyone unless they are very close to me, which in most cases is my immediate family. I am not sure if bottling up feelings is a good way to live, but sometimes I just want to say things to someone’s face but then I back up thinking it will be too rude J

So that’s about me, a little kind, a little sweet, a lot reserved, very confused at times. So do let me know what are the things that you like about yourself and if you had to change one thing about yourself, what would it be? 


  1. Mix mash of so many emotions and good things - You are
    good to know about U :)

  2. Nice I like this I version. Has an "I"dentity



  4. We're similar in some ways :) the responding kindly part, the short temper and bottling it up and all that !

  5. We are so similar...I was very hesitant in meeting people earlier...Even though I go now to meets, inside I have this voice that tells me that I'm apprehensive and shy and I try my best to ignore it.. I am short tempered too .... Oh we have to meet!

  6. Oh I wrote a whole post about that 'change about me' back in November :) I like your portrayal- honest, simple and from the heart. Be as you feel and do as your heart tells you. You need to face your own conscience at the end of the day.

  7. Ahh everyone can relate to you!! I too cannot write too much about me unless it is something 'self depreciating'. Damn I need to respect myself more!!!!!!
    And it is sweet that you know where you want to change yourself and working towards it!

  8. "I used to defend the aunty saying that she may have her reasons as to why she was behaving in a particular way."
    This is a very rare quality. These days, almost everybody is extremely judgmental.

  9. Nice knowing more about you. Blogger meets are fun. You should definitely stems them.

  10. In my case too I don't judge people something that never went well with anyone, but I will accept I gossip :P


  11. I'm an introvert kind of person and I take it in a positive way....All in all 'Everyone is Special'
    Lovely post
