6. You never go looking for attention.
With an iron spine and stellar personality, you never try to seek attention from people; you end up getting it because of the respect people have for you. Attention seeking behavior is something you never indulge in, and you would rather let your talents and work do the talking for you because you are secure about yourself.
You know what you are made of, you know what you bring to the table, and most importantly, you know who you are; being in the spotlight was never a concern for you. Ever.
7. You are lion-hearted.
When you have a strong personality, being brave and courageous is kind of a package deal. You never shy away from challenges, nor do you get intimidated that easily. The inherent confidence and faith you have in yourself, help you to deal with the most difficult situations in life. You are lion-hearted in the truest sense.
When people see this side of yours, they naturally feel intimidated because not a lot of people have your determination and nerves of steel.
8. You see insecurities as useful opportunities.
Insecurity for you is an opportunity to do better. For you, perfection is not everything, and you know that if you are not learning to evolve, then you are not living life in the truest sense; you are just going through the motions like a machine and simply existing. You believe that life is much more than just existing.
They say everyone is insecure and this is probably true, but not every person has the strength to take their insecurities and use them as opportunities to better themselves. But you do.
Most people think that it is annoying and tough being around strong personalities, but it is simply their insecurities and misconceptions. If by being strong and determined you need to let go of a few people, then so be it. Life is too short to be someone you are not.
