ADAPT...WHO, ME?

I did not think that it was possible but I am still changing and evolving. I thought that when I became 25 that I was now set in my ways and that my personality was fully developed and that would be that. At 27 I now realize that I don't know everything about myself and that I am still learning what I like and don't like. Not to mention that I am confusing myself these days.

I used to be the kind of person that would just go with the flow and adapt and try my best to fit in and not ruffle any feathers, but at my new job I am finding it hard to fit in and I am making no attempt to adapt. I am myself and simply refuse to conform. I know that is very selfish of me, but why can other people be their rude and obnoxious selves and I have to be the one who constantly smiles? Why can't I be the workaholic that doesn't like making conversation unless it is work related?

I am starting to like being on my own more and more and sharing an office with a women who constantly needs to chat is not helping matters. My taste in the kind of novels I read and write have also changed. I am not sure for how much longer I will be writing romance novels. I have become an even stricter vegetarian and the thought of ever going back to being a meat eater is now out of my mind forever.

On another note, I have written at least one post for the A-Z challenge and planned ahead for the others, but I have yet to write them. But what about you guys? How are things with you?

  2. Do I dare to say it? It's all fine and dandy if you feel all right with yourself. However, watch out for pain in the knees or neck. If you start having those, you might be facing a problem with "flexibility". Extremes are never good. ;)

  3. I think everyone should be open to learning and changing. It's the people who don't that I think are really missing out on life. Enjoy the ride!

  4. Linda - Sounds interesting. Thank you for stopping by.

    Alex - Yep, A-Z is almost here. At 50 I think people won't care to change me any more. I could then use age as an excuse.

    Al - Thanks Al. I am just so tired of having to change myself for others. I just want to be myself and do my job and leave at the end of the day.

    Annalisa - Thank you, you make a good point.

  6. Hey Murees, hope you're well!
    Just be yourself. That's all you can ever be. Then you'll be okay. Don't bend to pressure from people who like to dictate...
    However, always keep an open mind and remain open to change. Change is good. It involves learning new things, which in turn leads to growth and progress.

    Only 2 more days till the A to Z Challenge... I'll be popping in to check out your posts!

  7. Julie - Thank you, you as well. I am sure I will do okay.

    Michelle - Thank you for the great advice. I am always open to change and to learning new things, I just don't know why people always want to change who I am as a person though. I will be stopping by to visit you as well.
