    I Try To Soothe

    I have spent most of my adult life trying to be the opposite of the man who raised me. Don't let my affection for my father fool you, he was a mean man who was never nice to anyone and never spoke with a soft voice, ever! I grew to love him for reasons I feel were inside me and...

    I Am Needed?

     I am tremendously introverted and therefore I'm not naturally people-oriented, am I? and yet it is strange and surprising to be told, by people like my oldest friend, that they need me around and that I calm them down. because truthfully I feel like I really have no idea...

    Actually was told I have an incredibly calming

    presence which is pretty much the same thing - although I think it was meant as a compliment I wasn't toooo sure on exactly how I should feel about it really :)

    Yes

    I am a very calm person, especially outwardly and particularly when those around me are panicking, I seem to derive their lost sense of calm and will stand back and become the rational voice, the person that does rather than goes through verbal panic and races. I ...

    If Only It Worked For Me

    It makes me feel good that often I'm the one friends call when they're going through tough times.  When my roommate was going through major surgery, she asked me to take time off to help her out because she was scared and I made her feel calm about it,  I had to help...

    Whaat?!

    Despite my issues, people have said this about me! I find it hard to believe sometimes. To be told that I'm calming and meant to be a healer still sounds a bit strange. I'm not sure what it is, but I've been told about it.

    Peace

    I remember once I had a job interview. The lady was late to the interview. I spent almost two hours in with that lady. She told me that when she first met me she felt calm about the interview. She shared personal things about herself and said she liked me. I often get this...
