Topic: Title of a personal statement
June 25, 2019 / By Aline Question:
The title doesn't and cant even do the word justice. Everyone has a personality, but i think only achieve substance. I see it as, maybe like purness, and a rich understanding of ones self.
By definition we could say character, morals, personality, natural thought flow, all consist of "substance" but everyone has these things, not all have substance. Ultimately, I would probably wrap it up as, knowing who you are - knowing what all seperately goes into making you, you (morals, character, outlook, respect, personal traits, ect.), the enrichment of these parts on an individual level (knowing exactly what you stand for), and then combining these all into one "You" , and understanding "I" deeply means- lastly, presentation, and an appropriate level of confidence.
I don't think one could look at themselves and see pure "substance" , sure you can, to a degree, but you know all of your impurities, others don't, which is why id say presentation is of eminence importance, and difficulty.
I think, "That guy is just pure substance" (ladies too), may just be the most complimentary statement to be made in reference to someone.
Honestly dont know why I'm hung up on this word at the moment, hah sorry if I dragged it out and rambled but hey, that's why we love our Y!A.
Let's hear what your take is on it. I just pulled that all right out on the spot.
It doesn't have to even make sense really.
Thanks, Stay Substantial
BTW, Do you see compliments in regards to having "substance" as that entente of a gesture or just average.

It's a great compliment...
someone having "substance" would mean that they seem "real", like a no-bullsh*t type of person. You actually see them for who they really are, not because of possession or position. They display the characteristics of someone who is honest, trustworthy, loyal, ...etc.
i.e.- you can buy a gold watch, encrusted with diamonds, and all the extra polishing possible to make it extremely impressive and expensive, but if the inner workings aren't quality, then it's worthless (it is lacking in substance).
