Thought Picnic: Getting Dangerously Absent From Myself

I hearing me

I had a conversation with a prospective recruiter this morning and the more I heard myself; the more I became worried about the possibility of losing my vice, my assertiveness, my sense of confidence and a feeling of assuredness.

She was quite understanding and listened attentively showing unusual concern and readiness to engage, it was easy to apologise, if not make excuses for my voice that sounded worlds away from the contents of my résumé.

However, this does not bode well, the force of personality with appears in well letters is usually expressed spiritedly in demeanour, speech and conversation.

I could hear myself rambling to the point that I had to check myself for coherence, the sense of wonderment that made for thinking I was leaving myself behind rather than putting myself forward can be quite scary.

This calls for an intervention, immediate, effective and radical – I need to find me before I am dangerously absent from myself.
