You’re Not Difficult, You Just Have A Crazy Strong Awesome Personality

People either love you or they hate you. Sound familiar? Sure, you can be abrupt, painfully honest, and sometimes a little forgetful of other people’s feelings, but it isn’t because you’re stuck up, argumentative, or a bitch — you just have a strong personality, which is a good thing. Some might say you have an attitude, but if you can relate to any of these 12 things, just call it your crazy, strong, and awesome personality.

  1. You Don’t Take Crap From Anyone. You rarely feel passionate enough to curse someone out for being rude, but that doesn’t mean you’re a pushover. You have no patience for people’s messed up energy. Whenever someone gets in your face, talks about you behind your back, or does anything that you deem disrespectful, you delete them from your life in a very permanent way. Why would you keep toxic people around?
  2. You’re Not a Pessimist, You’re A Realist. Being a realist doesn’t necessarily mean you’re not an optimist. You think good things can happen, you just don’t expect them to happen as much as optimists do. This means you’re focused on making your own crap happen. You don’t rely on the universe or the winds to give you what you want — you get up and get after it.
  3. You Aren’t Obsessed With Attention. You get a lot of attention but it’s not because you’re actively trying to — you just have one of those personalities that people are drawn to. Your confidence is clear whenever you walk into a room and people want to be around you.
  4. You Enjoy Your Time Alone. Going out is fun every so often but you also enjoy spending time alone or doing something low-key with your friends. Because you’re an upfront person, when your friends ask you to go out with them and you’re not feeling it, you have no problem just saying, “Nah.”
  5. You believe honesty is a requirement, not an option. You tell it exactly like it is and you want the people around you to do the same. You know not everyone is going to be as direct as you are (which is very disappointing) but you still expect people to be honest and straightforward. When they’re not, you lose interest because there’s nothing you hate more than being lied to — even if it’s in an attempt to spare your feelings.
  6. You’re Extremely Picky Because You Know You Deserve The Best. Especially when it comes to who you surround yourself with. Your friends are people you’ve specifically chosen because they complement you well. And, be honest, it probably took you a little while to form the amazing friend group you have now. Didn’t it? It’s because you know what you want and you never settle for less.
  7. You’re Not A Child – You Hate Games. Luckily, your crazy strong personality keeps you away from guys that play games, mainly because you drop ‘em like hot potatoes whenever they start acting shady. What drives you insane is when your friends play games with their partners and then tell you about it. “What should I say back to him? I don’t want to sound too eager!” WTF? Just respond normally!
  8. You’re Not A Serial Dater. Speaking of guys, you aren’t someone who has to always be in a relationship and/or “talking” to someone. Again, you’re picky. You aren’t interested in just any guy, you like a specific type of guy. Even once you find someone who fits your type, it still takes you awhile before committing. You want to get to know a person — REALLY get to know them — before you make any type of promise to them.
  9. You’re A Great Listener. You’re a natural born storyteller. You like to tell stories but you also like to hear them. You know those people who nod their heads when you’re talking as if they’re listening but they really aren’t? You aren’t one of those people. You pay attention to what someone’s telling you, you get involved in their story, you ask questions and give your two cents because you actually want to.
  10. You don’t sweat the small stuff. It’s not that you never stress out, it just takes A LOT to get you worried. You know that life is precious and way too short to be afraid, so you aren’t. You don’t live your life overanalyzing or freaking out about baseless things. You live in the present and you never look back.
  11. You don’t always have to be talking. Sometimes, you don’t say anything. Sure, you’re a strong and confident person, but you’re human. The world can be crappy and scary. There are times when you get overwhelmed and are unable to be the funniest, strongest, and most carefree person in the entire world. You’re not perfect and you don’t pretend to be.
