This year I have spent a lot of time introspecting. It has been an interesting year for me. It has been a year of learning and developing. It has been a year of helping others. It has been a year of teaching myself not to judge, no matter how frustrating someone else’s behaviour may be.
At Youthline there is a school of thought that says it is easy to ignore the feedback that we get from one person, but if you hear the same thing from 3 or 4 people you should stand up and take notice.
I have changed a lot this year. I think I have achieved more personal growth than ever before. It has made me wonder how those around me view me. I decided to ask them. I think I’ll do it each year and see how it changes.
**Note: At this point I went and asked them. My whole plan backfired really because no one gave me negative feedback (I guess they were too scared!!). I have decided to post it anyway because it makes me feel so damn good about myself! I recommend this exercise to everyone.
Sarah is an energetic, loving, friendly & motivated person.
She has no boundaries when it comes to helping others.
Sarah is fun in the goodtimes and supportive and caring in the bad times. She is gregarious and manages to strike just the right balance between silliness, sensibility and sensibleness (well most of the time anyway).
Loveable, happy, smiley, efficient, reliable, dependable
Sarah is a very intelligent woman with high standards and strong values and views on the world. She is empathetic, caring and generous to a fault as well as being practical, efficient and well organised.
Sarah is a committed person; be it to a work task or her personal life. She is reliable, thoughtful and caring. She has strong values, yet remains open to new ideas, and always sees the lighter side of life. She may need to consider slowing down and taking care of herself a bit better and working on her patience.
Sarah is a highly organised perfectionist, who is always on the go. Sarah takes everything to the extreme and lives life to the fullest. She doesn’t care what anyone thinks of her or the outcome of her actions (but not in a bad way).
Loyalty and friendship are paramount to Sarah, once you are a friend you are a friend for life, she will always be there when you need her and will never forget anything that is important to you.
Brother in Law
You are full of energy, organised, vivacious, the life of the party. You often like to be the centre of attention, mostly for the enjoyment of others. You are very thoughtful, unselfish, extremely loyal and family orientated. You are highly intelligent and possess huge creative potential. You have an intense drive to get things done properly. Sometimes that single minded drive overwhelms your true nature and balance can be lost.
You are very determined, courageous, competitive and you posses the ability to manipulate people and situations. With all this in mind I believe you haven’t actually got close to reaching your potential in terms of what you truly want to do. An interesting thought if you agree that the best is yet to come and you have the ability to decide what you actually want to achieve.
Intelligent, loyal, trustworthy, friendly, direct, fun, opinionated, respected
