On Being “A Lot”

Many are the times when I’ve been told that I am a lot. Not only in the sense that I talk a lot but also that I think a lot (overthink?). Just the other day I was told that I am “wordy” which to be honest made me chuckle a bit.

This is like when I thought I was convinced I am a quiet drunk. I mean, I don’t even know why I thought that in the first place but that’s besides the point.

Is being “a lot” a bad thing? I can see why it would have a negative connotation especially in this world where we are forced to shrink ourselves. You know at times I’m not doing it purposely. It is just who I am. Some is genetics and if you’ve met my mum you know what I mean.

I wonder if someone can say that I share a lot. I probably do tell people a lot of what I’m doing. Is that being a lot? I don’t know. Is my “a-lot-ness” my defining characteristic? 😏
