Writing Prompt – Admired Personality Trait
Bought myself a journal (300 Writing Prompts by Piccadilly Inc.) to force really quick writing. Here’s my latest prompt:
What is a personality trait do you admire in other people?
Patience, which often manifests itself in kindness.
Look, the world is a trying place. People and circumstances can frustrate us and lead us away from our daily (or lifelong) goals. It is so, so easy to take out a slew of perceived injustices on others because they’re not as “whatever” as we’d like them to be.
But we’re all unique individuals on highly personal journeys. We’re all of us more than we are at any given moment, and so exhibiting patience often provides the buffer that all sides in a situation need to save themselves from themselves.
I’m still working on this trait and suspect I always will be.
What personality trait do you admire? Tell me in the comments. 🙂
I admire confidence. Not the ‘look at me, I’m so awesome confidence; but what I would describe as quiet confidence. Confidence that does what is right for the individual without stepping all over others. Confidence that doesn’t care what the world around them is doing or saying. I felt like I’ve sorely lacked this type of confidence and am working on building it in myself.
Ooh, that’s a good one, Tricia. The world needs quietly confident people doing the right thing. 🙂
