Self Perception
Is the awareness of the characteristics that constitute one's self; self-knowledge. The way that I perceived myself is a strong, independent woman who overcame a lot at a young age. Who will never lets her guard down, and I’m afraid to even let my hair down just for a second to enjoy life itself. I’m tiring to play catch up in my life thru my kids. Like for example what I went thru I’m making sure they don’t. I giving them everything I didn’t have any more. When I love I love so hard that sometime it runs others off. I don’t know how to let by gone be by gone I hold on to them. My needs and wants come last to my kids.

With me being so tuff it makes it hard for a man to try and love me because I’m use to doing it all by myself it’s hard to let someone in.

People always judge me before they truly get to know me and it is all because of the way I choose to communicate with them. Out of this class I’m hoping to improve the way I be interaction with other. The way I can help improve my communication skills is to always think about it before saying it and work on my body expression. My barrier is to be more consideration to other feeling too as we as mine. Sometime it takes going thru thing to help us take a good look inside our self to improve one.
