I like your personality
I see myself inside you, but, but, I have learnt through experience, telling it straight to a dear one’s face, it won’t go well. I will be perceived as coming on too strong and probably get punched in the neck. On another demented trail, if I take it slow, the dear one will find better shit to do. Great thanks go out, to freely available porn. Can this get any worse?
For the last couple of posts, I placed life situational humor on hold. Posts dived into factual reality without bits of joy, meant to entertain one’s day. This blew many away, shredding their groove. Worry less my dear, it’s time to embark on humored awkwardness, encapsulated with life drama, as well as insightful life hacks. Of course, sprinkles of wisdom will follow along, as long as you let them in. And no, that wasn’t meant to be a sex joke, so shut it.
Anyway, what better way to resume humored life insights, than with the most loved lie: I like your personality? Seriously, what the heavenly hell is ravished into people’s minds? For the Devil’s sake, God xerox in and assassinate I. Every time I hear someone bloody utter out that lie, I literally melt inside. Individual personality seems to have transformed into physical outlooks which can easily be judged. Wait, am I missing out on something? Maybe telling someone that you like or love their personality, is a better and modified way of telling them that you most definitely see yourself inside them? Or them inside you. Tables have turned, it can always be the other way around. Thanks go out to gender fluidity movements.
However, I still try hard to wrap my brains around the thing called personality. Unfortunately, returned results are sketchier than a one-year old’s art piece. To better write about the lie, I looked up its definition: “personality – the complex of all the attributes–behavioral, temperamental, emotional and mental–that characterize a unique individual”, from an Advanced English Dictionary of WordNet by Princeton University.
Many claim to like someone’s personality after interacting with them for a few hours. Given a fact that I possess shattered emotions which were mentally smacked as they came crumbling down, accompanied with questioned behavioral patterns, I am not sure that I am the right individual to write about personality. But I know for sure, telling someone that you like their personality, is a true and clear lie. Maybe you are referring to their lifestyle?
Regardless of how much time someone has spent studying another, it is nearly impossible to come up with even a ducky conclusion, about another’s personality. Sorry to bust the bubble, but that is the truth. Simply let it in. The saddest part about telling someone that you like their personality is that, many to whom it is said to, love it, delighting their hearts with tremendous joy. Not to be violent, but those who constantly utter out that phrase, are to be added on the punch in the neck list.
Also, not to be a sadist, but extreme joy floods my heart hole, when a relationship based on “I like your personality”, is damaged. I won’t feel sorry for individuals involved, since they deliberately drove themselves into it. Although many love to hear that someone else loves their personality, it should be abandoned. One can never fully understand another’s personality, and come to appreciate it. Not to be a dick, but I sometimes wonder what my true personality is? With time, I hope it will be made legal, to physically, emotionally and mentally assault someone, who utters out the phrase: I like your personality.
