It is often incredibly difficult to describe oneself, for it is nearly impossible to write an accurate description. For example, if I were to describe my friend, I would use words such as "wonderful" and "loyal" and "talented". However, she might use words such as "short" or "annoying" or "pointless". Everybody views themselves differently than those around them, so no one can truly be described by anything other than their outward appearances. I can tell you for a fact that my hair is dark brown, but it is up for the writer to decide whether it is a soft, wood brown or the color of drying dirt with flecks of sand.
