Who Am I?

Who am IHave you ever asked yourself this what should be a fairly easy question, “Who am I?” I sometimes am forced to ask myself this question a few times a day, especially when others challenge the person I know I am, by being disrespectful and even a little demeaning. I find that other people can cause a slight change in my views of myself and then I react unkind. For instances, there is a person I work with that seems to enjoy treating others as if they are beneath him, which creates a very hostile work environment, or at least it does for me! I do not need someone to blow smoke up my rear end, but I do demand and deserve to be respected. This negative treatment causes an excessive amount of anger and frustration in me, which then causes my attitude to be so NEGATIVE and this is not me! In your experiences and opinion, what is the best way to handle this extremely disturbing individual?

Underneath everyone is a person that is so much more than what can be viewed from their exterior appearance! Our exterior is just a visual image, but underneath that visual image is an entirely other person with emotions and passions. When I was first diagnosed with MS, I thought that people just viewed me as just my illness and not for underneath-copywho I was on the inside. Even now, almost 18 years later I feel that is all people see me as which could not be further from the truth, but I am learning that is their problem and not mine! Others view me from my outside as a vertically challenged (I am a little short) and petite person which makes people make annoying comments that I do not eat, which I do! The verbal attacks cause frustration to me and therefore make me very uncomfortable, but again I know this is those doing the talking problem not mine!

At 36 years old, I am still learning how to deal with other’s personalities and how to interact with them when it is the complete opposite of my own. When I ask myself, Who am I?, I typically answer it the same way every time! I pride myself on being ❤kind and understanding of everyone. I also have never been and never will be ❤judgmental towards anyone by judging on race, color, religion and or sexual preference. I always butterfly who am Iwant to help others get through hard times by offer support and encouragement to those! I will always be compassionate, loving❤, caring and giving to a fault despite how most around me are not. So, if I ask y’all the same question, “Who are you?” what would your answer be?

I really appreciate you visiting my site today and I really look forward to any comments you may have! I do promise you, I will respond as quickly as I can! I hope you have a wonderful rest of your weekend and I hope you are feeling the best you possibly can! Please never forget that I am always sending you LOTS of ❤love and comfort!

Love 2

❤Always, Alyssa❤

  1. It’s bitter truth people judge the book by its cover ! They don’t understand they can get valuable knowledge by reading it. Well I am not perfect but my imperfections make me a perfect person. I believe don’t focus on how others see us how we see ourselves means everything! 💛✨

  2. It really is a shame that the way others treat us make us question ourselves at times. I think people that put another down or demean them have control issues and actually feel inferior in some way. I believe they actually feel threatened by the person they are confronting and humiliating them or mistreating them in some way makes them feel better about themselves. That is very sad. I know when it’s you this is happening to it makes you doubt yourself. We need to stand true to who we are and never let another person allow us to question who we are. We need to assess the situation and if we feel mistreated the best choice would be to approach the culprit and let them know how you were just treated was uncalled for and will not be tolerated. We are all equals and should be treated with dignity and respect. Making someone feel bad about themselves to make you appear superior or better than others is so wrong. Ask yourself, would you treat another person poorly just so you can feel on top of the world? If the answer is yes, you need to look at yourself and question who you are not the other person. Alyssa you are the kindest person I know and don’t doubt yourself. You treat everyone with respect and how you want to be treated. Know you are not the problem. All my Love, Mom..

    • Thank you so much for this comment Mom! I do believe those that talk down to others are feeling bad about themselves and are unhappy with their own lives, so they feel the need to bring others down. I think this person hates the fact that I stand up to him and never let him see how much he upsets me, I will never give him that satisfaction!

  3. I’m sorry you face such ignorance and frustration at work and you’re so right about people who can demean and judge based on external appearances. You’re one tough cookie, Alyssa, and I love your positive approach to this because you know who you are underneath, and we all know you’re one amazing lady! ♥

  4. Great reflection Alyssa. We can’t control what people say but we can learn to control how it makes us feel. It’s not easy to try to understand awkward or rude people but it helps to consider what negativity is driving their behaviour.

    • Thank you so much for this comment! It is extremely difficult to understand these people with negative attitudes because I am the direct opposite! I know this one person I was referring to seems unhappy with his life and the only thing I can think of is it is due to having a child. I try to limit communications with him.
