I speak my mind and i don't care who likes it
I tell it like it and I don't believe in sugar coating
I am learning to stand up for myself sick of being walked over
I have been through a lot in my life that has changed my personality
I try to be a leader not a follower
I can be very obnoxious
I know i am very bitchy and moody at times
I can come across as intimidating to those who don't know me
I don't believe in judging without knowing facts however
There are some of my personality traits in a nutshell. My personality was not always strong. I'd say by 18 my personality got difficult. Things that have happened to me changed my personality. I have been told i have a strong personality by many who meet me. You either love me or hate me. Either way I could not care less.

I would say the main difference between having a strong personality and being a bitch (or a jerk for guys) is HOW you express yourself and HOW you deal with every-day life situations. The definition of a bitch is not so much that she speaks her mind and stands up for herself but that she is impolite, rude, unfriendly, inconsiderate, lacks empathy, arrogant, condescending and egoistic.
For example I believe in speaking my mind and I certainly stand up for myself. In fact, I was trained to stand up for myself my whole life because I have a physical disability that affords standing up for myself in certain every-day life situations. However, I also believe in treating my fellow humans with respect and politeness. I don't bitch at people but instead, I try to ask them politely to treat me in a different way. In Swiss (and French) we say "C'est le ton, qui fait la musique". In English: it's the tone that makes the music. In other words: it's the small actions that define the person you are. I believe in being strong about what I want but getting it across in a mild, calm, and patient way.2
