This question popped up in my head the other day – and so did the answers to that question. As I am practicing myself in detaching from my writing, I decided to just publish these thoughts. Possibly I will be posting more of those short snippets.
So, what makes a genuine person? Maybe it is the subtle way of my brain to address the issues occuring right now in this society.
A genuine person does not impose their opinion on everyone else they encounter. A genuine person meets others with curiosity. A genuine person allows people space. A genuine person is not in a rush to get their message across. A genuine person does their job and moves on. No pushing. No pulling. Just being in alignment with what they are. A genuine person is ‘at ease’ with the circumstances. A genuine person listens and makes an effort to comprehend.
What does it actually mean to be a genuine person?
According to etymonline dictionairy the word genuine springs from the the latin word genuius and it signifies “native, natural, innate”.
The root of the word stems from the word “gene” which signifies “give birth”. When we look at the word “genetics” we can see the connection. The biological term can be translated as “resulting from a common origin”….
After all a genuine person lives accordingly to their “innate values”.
