This word was once used to describe me and I was deeply hurt by it.
I like to think I am open and friendly, a ‘what you see is what you get’ kind of person, and I will help anyone if I can, be it a shoulder to cry on, a listening ear, a hand to hold, or simply just being there so that they know they are not alone. I also make a good cup of tea.
According to the Cambridge English Dictionary:
aloof definition: 1. not friendly or willing to take part in things: 2. not interested or involved, usually because you do not approve of what is happening: 3. not taking part in things, esp. in a way that seems unfriendly
Does this sound like the pensitivity101 you’ve come to know over the years?
