Title: "What Kind Of A Person Are You?"
I like to believe that every human being should find time to answer this question at least once in their life, but preferably, we should answer this question over and over and over again, to bring us back to reality- like a sound check, but in this case, a reality check. If someone asks you, “What kind of woman are you?” what would be your answer. It shouldn’t be a question of stating your selling point(s)... It should be a question that causes you to take an introspective look at your life and values and strengths and weaknesses and state what KIND of a person YOU ARE.
If I had to answer this question, it could possibly take me a whole day to organise my thoughts and get the said. First off, there’s so much that makes up one person. If you take a person at their face value, you’d be greatly underestimating the individual. People have various walls and bridges and façades that they put up for various reasons. You get to truly know a person when you reach out and tear all the masks and fences apart and touch the real essence of this human being.
SO yeah, if I am asked this question- amongst a million and one things that I would have said, here are some things I would say, and then some other things I would say (only in my head. Hehee! Yes, because that’s my safe space. LOL).
I am that kind of woman that loves God. You know how they say if we could have alternative realities and in one of them I found out that God didn’t exist? I would still pick this reality, because without Him, honestly, I am nothing (and I am not saying that because that’s what people say) He saved me!!!!. One of my greatest fears, is that one day I wake up and find out that I am outside of where God wants me to be. He is the reason I do not do so many things, and He is also the reason I man up and do other things. And He is the reason that even if I fall a hundred times, or I become lazy or I mess up- He is the reason I get up, dust my self up and try again.
I am the kind of woman who is stronger than people perceive. Maybe not physical strength (although that one sef dey. lol!...Serious though), but then, strength. That kind of woman that doesn’t talk so much- not because I don’t have anything to say, but because I usually don’t know how to say it. The type of woman who loves to see beautiful things and people, and who loves even more, to bring out the beauty in things (maybe also in people), that may not have been so visible before. Oh... And I’m the kind of woman who worries a lot (prayer-point) about everything and nothing.
I need to add- you can totally trust me with money (so far anyway). Ehen! There was also once a time when you could trust me to fry plantain and I wouldn’t taste one- but mehn... those days are over, as I fry, I chop (Yes I have grown wings--- that’s the only way I can fly naaa). I am also the kind of woman who sees black and blue, when everyone else sees white and gold. Finally, I am the kind of woman who would totally collect those large yellow jerry-cans of fuel (like 5) as bride price for her daughter. (I’m only kidding Kike ooooo!) Hahaa! Or am I? (Evil laugh).
