If you're bored, does that mean you're boring?

It's a well known saying, only boring people get bored;postID=4243059826646961107;onPublishedMenu=allposts;onClosedMenu=allposts;postNum=14;src=postname

So does that mean, on those days where nobody is around, you don't have any work to do, and nothing is on TV. And you're bored. Then that thought crept into your mind, "I'm bored. Does this mean I'm boring?"

Well, I've been thinking, and the answer is no.

There's a reason behind your boredom

It could be that you've literally never had nothing to do. If you're a generally busy person, you're probably used to having zero down time. If you're someone who has every day packed from dawn till dusk, then having free time is just... weird.

This free time that you're not used to is what's making you bored. This doesn't make you a boring person. On the contrary, you're quite the opposite of boring.

Most of the time, you're out there making great things happen in the world. Whether you're a blogger, a journalist, a chef, a school secretary, a nurse, or an economist; most of the time your life involves a lot of interesting things. Some free time - that is so uncharacteristic in your daily schedule - does not make you a boring person. It just means you're bored. Simple as that.

Your actions define you. Your boredom doesn't

What you do with most of your time is what makes you a unique person. What you do with the time you are bored makes you.... in need of something to do. Just because you can't come up with something to do when you normally would be doing a million other things doesn't mean you're boring.

You're not boring. Unless you're Star Wars Episodes I-III movies, then you're not boring. Promise!

Keep it Classy. Keep it Country,
