I'm a student at MUN and I spend most of my time either studying, partying or working, which can be exhausting. I'm in a caring profession that strongly influences how I feel about people. I believe happiness comes from social inclusion and I value all life. I would say I'm patient with people because I love to empathize and I honour difference. One of the most radical things I taught myself to believe is that *everyone is always doing the best they can*. It's hard to be angry with people when you understand their actions through that lens. That doesn't mean that I don't have boundaries, but just that I don't get angry very much and when I do it passes quickly. I'm assertive and communicative, but sometimes it's hard for me to disclose information about myself, which can make me seem aloof. I think it's ironic that I spend so much time with so many people and yet I still feel alone. Not lonely per se, but definitely alone.
