Thoughts Unveiled #21
"What’s your edge?"
When I was still in school we had this interview thingy for Personality Development and I got asked the question above. We all know me — I’m not very good at talking and interviews involve a lot of that plus three pairs of eyes scrutinizing me plus I hate not being able to really think about my answer before answering a question. So, I went on about being matured for my age and some other shit I will not bore you with.
Anyway, I’ve been thinking about that question ever since and I came up with an answer that I think makes more sense and I can actually be proud of (maybe).
I was just thinking how people are different mixtures of different things. We may have a trait or a skill or a talent that’s the same with others, but that’s not really all you’ve got. No two people are exactly the same. Heck, even identical twins or triplets are different from one another. So really, all I can think of to answer that question is that I’m me. That’s my edge. That’s what separates me from the others. That’s what makes me different and that’s what makes me stand out. You see, if I say that my edge is I can sing, or I can cook dessert, or I work hard, I’m sure there are at least thousands of other people who are the same and thousands more that are better than me in doing those things. But nobody else can be me. And I may not be perfect, and I’m far from it, I know. But that’s what sets me apart from the rest of the people on earth. I am a different mixture from everybody else and nobody can take that away from me, the same way I can’t take away another person’s personality and self.
So. I’ve said my piece. What about you, what is your edge?
