I’ve loaded this blog, my blog, with a bunch of posts but none ever closer to giving you an idea of who I am; what my likes are, what hobbies do
I think therein lies the irony. For years and years of my life,
Your Name is Your Virtue
Afiq [a-fyq] noun
Maybe I’m stuck because I’ve not learnt to be truly honest. Looking up the definition of honest left me more confused than before.
honest [on-ist] adjective
- honorable in principles, intentions, and actions; upright and fair:an honest person.
- showing uprightness and fairness:honest dealings.
- gained or obtained fairly:honest wealth.
- sincere; frank:an honest face.
- genuine or unadulterated:honest commodities.
- respectable; having a good reputation:an honest name.
So when I responded to my name being called, what did I hear? What was I responding to? Was I responding to “upright and fair” or “genuine”?
Don’t know, therefore …I know. This is quite an unorthodox approach to trying to remove me from this sense of “stuck”. Trying to understand myself via my name. Granted, this wouldn’t work if your name meant ‘hero’ or ‘God’s angel’. To be very honest, my name is very common and I doubt that the other 450K (don’t quote me on this) people with my name share the same issue.
In my attempt at understanding myself, I’m taking a historical approach to comprehension; definition.
To be very honest, I’ve found myself stuck. Purely because I haven’t been living up the virtue of my name. I haven’t been honest with myself. That’s something I have realised.
How do you define yourself? What’s that process? Who are you?
