I'm a vast array of ‘too’. On the face of it, the previous sentence doesn't make a lot of sense. Fear not, if you were feeling concerned for my sloppy use of language. In a few sentences time, you'll know exactly what I mean.
I have been described as ‘intense’. Indeed, I've been described as too intense. I deem this compliment, though I doubt it has always been meant as one. There are times when intense is inappropriate. Where ‘intense’, is going to detract from the joy of life, rather than add to it. For example, imagine you're writing an in-depth report and some fool chooses that moment to embark upon an intense debate. In other words, when ‘intense’ is combined with poor timing, it's too much. I'm fairly good at being considerate so I'm unlikely to offer my intensity at the wrong moment. This leads me to another 'too’.
I'm also too nice, which I take to mean - I'm not an arsehole. So kudos to everyone that has ever called me too nice, as if it's a bad thing. If you think about it, too nice is what we should all aspire to be. Whereas one should probably avoid being an arsehole. Now obviously, if you combine intense with twattish behaviour, this creates a terrible combination. If one encounters arseyness, you'd certainly hope for it to be fairly wishy-washy rather than the bang-in-your-face variety. Fortunately, I'm both nice and intense so I naturally avoid such dire combinations. Go me!
There are probably other examples of 'too’, when thinking about my personality but I'll end with too sensitive. I've long been called sensitive. This is the extremely emosh brand of sensitive, rather than the punch someone in the face for breathing sort. Obviously, I'm far too nice for random face punching, as has previously been identified. Even the slightest element of emotional content can generate tears. Im not crying for me. It's not suppressed anger or frustration, it's compassion in watery form. This is because I care about people. I want the world to smile, which seems like a pretty sound thing to hope for. Empathy can't ever be a bad thing.
So thank you in advance to all who deem me too sensitive, too intense and too nice. This simply means I'm interesting, kind and flipping ace at empathy.
