I'm not all good. The word would be...

I am G-d's child

The one word I'd use to define myself is 'Jew', it's the one thing that really defines my life, and who I am. Jewish - in the Torah it says to be giving, caring, thoughtful, loving, generous, loyal - all of which I'd say I can apply to myself, other characteristics, I can't define myself as, but I'm working towards, because that's G-d's will, but I'm only doing it, because I am a Jew, or, in 2 words, 'G-d's child'. I am blessed to be a Jew, to be G-d's child, and to try to light up the world in my own way. Sometimes I fail miserably, but I'm always aiming there, for that is who I am.

Thank you for the reminder! I so often forget during the nitty gritty details of life, when really, all I ever have to think, is 'What does G-d want from me now'. Thank you!

I am...

TRYING to understand where I came from
TRYING to strengthen my relationships
TRYING to find my purpose in life

Stress the best that you are

I sum myself as giving. Of course I fall short. Giving means listening patiently, sharing resource, attending completely to the concerns of others. An impossible ideal--but I work at it.

That is a very relative term,but it fits me.

I would also say "Jew". Or maybe more explicitly, "Chareidi".

Who am I?

Difficult to answer in one word, but I would say that I am positive. I prefer to see the positive side of a situation, usually give the benefit of the doubt and always hope and pray for the best outcome. I guess that leads to a happy disposition rather than a miserable one!

Yes, yes, yes, each & every one of us is "unique"--perhaps in God's eyes. We're "unique", as every single snowflake is unique.
In a word: I'm *Jewish*.

Even before I saw your reply the word "Yehudi" came to mind.
Yehudi=Jew which is the noun which corresponds to your adjective: Jewish.

who i am - loving

i believe i can summarize myself with the word - loving. i usually give everyone the benefit of the doubt (unless judaism would say not to in rare instances). i can usually tell when another person is upset etc. A clerk at a local bookstore noticed I am always sending gifts to family members. I won't elaborate further, but that's the word that I believe describes me. may we share ONLY good news, i"h.
