She’s a bit bubbly, and she smiles a lot too. When she was a little girl, her Daddy nicknamed her “Smiley”. Her life isn’t perfect, and she doesn’t always feel happy. She has just as many heartaches, struggles and challenges as the next woman, but she was created with a perky personality, and she can usually find the bright side, in most situations. Sometimes she even laughs through her tears. She has felt self-conscience about these traits, but she is arriving at a place where she accepts, and even values the positive aspects of her personality. Who is this woman? It’s ME – Madeline Eatenton.
Hello, I am Bubbly, and my bubble, perk and joy isn’t always tolerated well by other women. I am sure that I’ve annoyed a few women, and sometimes women just don’t like me at all. Some of these women were created with a personality that is more subdued, and as for the others – your guess is as good as mine. I will call the subdued woman, Somber. Somber is akin to a regal feline, perched high. Her demeanor is reserved. Bubbly is a bouncy, energetic, friendly puppy that just wants to play. She could be friends with almost anyone. Somber doesn’t really understand Bubbly, but if she gives her a chance, they can teach each other great lessons about life. I now have women friends that fit into the somber category. They are open to my bubble. We appreciate each other and our differences. I value their influence greatly, and I believe that they value mine.
For my fellow Bubbles – a Somber may have difficulty relating to you, but she’s still open to the possibility. Beware of another type of woman that doesn’t understand you – she may have a somber demeanor, but she has already decided that you won’t be entering her life. She will use various tactics and behaviors to make you feel disliked and unwelcome, and her manipulation can be so powerful, that you might believe that you are the problem.
Women of all personalities, shapes and sizes are sisters. We understand each other, and relate in ways that only sisters can. We can value each other, and realize that there is something to learn from other types of women. Instead of being turned off by a personality type, try examining her integrity. Is she open, kind, giving, honest and non-manipulative? If so, let her add her own unique brand of personality to your life.
Fellow bubbly: you and I must learn to temper our effervescence just a little, at least until we know whether it’s safe to pop the cork, and let the bubbly flow. Remember, when another woman doesn’t accept you, it is not about you. She may be dealing with her own insecurities, heart issues, emotional difficulties, mental illness, or at the very least, she simply isn’t able to understand you. You will learn to recognize the men and women that appreciate you for who you are – that Bubbly that naturally exudes a little sparkle and joy.
