If you date someone who reads, then you, too, will live a thousand different lives.
I’m lying in my bed crying at 4:35 AM over a possible interview I may have when school starts. It’s for an Office Assistant position. I have gone to three interviews for the same position at three different times and did not receive any of them. I was thinking that it may be because I struggle at conveying who I am as a person.
That got me thinking of the question they ask, “how can you contribute to [insert building’s name] community?”
How can I?
I am a very quiet, reserved person. On the inside. On the outside, I am very outgoing with my clothes and hair. But I feel like when someone takes the time to get close to me, they see the real me. I don’t know. I will do anything for these people. I put my heart into making them happy. My only goal is to improve their lives as much as I can, if I can at all. Sometimes they see that I do this, and other times it goes unnoticed, but I don’t care.
I don’t live for the applause.
I am so passionate about the people who are so close to me, even if I am not seen as close from their point of view. I just want to make them happy, and I would do anything for these people.
This brings me back to the interview. I feel like I transfer this passion into whatever I am involved in, whether that be work, a learning community, or in the classroom. I care too much about these silly things, and exhaust myself with the amount of effort I put into them.
I have such a hard time talking about what I bring to the table or how I express a community, because I just do.
I may not be the most outspoken, or the one who will give you the best advice you’ve ever had, but I will be there for you no matter what hour it is. I want to be there for anyone who feels the slightest discomfort in their life.
I may not be able to make myself happy by being present, but I sure do hope my presence improves the lives of those around me ♡
