As simple as Life

"Introduce yourself in two words". Two words. I had just been asked to sum up my whole life in two words.
"Take your time".Give me eternity, I won't have the ability to do this. But here we go: A hard worker and a thinker. Questions continue to pile up on me. A thick, heavy cloud of nothingness rises over, dominating my mind and thoughts. I never imagined the definition of my life would be that complicated-perhaps it's simple with the beauty of complexity.
The interviewer left me wondering. I don't know whether or not I should be thankful, but I do know thinking takes effort and intelligence, and too much thinking will kill you.Even a stranger helped me know that life is simpler than that.
I have come to realize that strength and power lie in admitting your weak points, and right then, right now, I have the ability to introduce myself, not in two words, but in meaningful, short and simple words:
I'm a believer, I believe everything exists for a reason. A writer who fears judgment but embraces criticism. Someone who wants to be like everyone else; heard, listened to, appreciated. I am ordinary with an invisible touch of an extraordinary. I'm undefeated by my heart, defeated by my soul. An optimist who,unwittingly, plunges with pessimism. I'm somehow like you, yet I'm always, always different.

Beautiful. Love how you can express yourself so... so simply yet profoundly.
I always struggle with talking about myself, when asked to like in "about me" sections or such stuff. Yet I find it so easy to shift conversation and start talking about myself, they're not the same thing though...

I just loved: "I'm a believer, I believe everything exists for a reason. A writer who fears judgment but embraces criticism. Someone who wants to be like everyone else; heard, listened to, appreciated. I am ordinary with an invisible touch of an extraordinary. I'm undefeated by my heart, defeated by my soul. An optimist who,unwittingly, plunges with pessimism. I'm somehow like you, yet I'm always, always different. "
^^ That kinda made me wish I wrote it.
