Six Word Story #188

Six Word Story:

I am not a decorous person…

Today’s Word:


1: Decorous means โ€œmarked by propriety and good taste; correct.โ€ A person or thing that is decorous conforms to an approved or conventional standard.

More about the word.

Have you heard this word before? Have you used this word before? Let me know in the comments below! This was a new-ish word to me. Like I have definitely heard it before or read it somewhere but I have never used it myself. Thanks to the Six Word Story posts I am able to use this word and many more words I would never use in general. As for the above Six Word Story, I am not a decorous person in anyway. I hate norms and tend to do whatever I feel like. Or rather what I feel is best. I would rather be happy than please anyone else ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

PS: I know I keep using my own pictures for posts but it’s only because I am too tired to make cover images lol. Not because I am obsessed with myself! I mean I am but that’s not what this is…

  1. For a moment there, I thought of the word to have a meaning similar to decorating.

    Anyways, I feel like everyone is decorous and fear is just preventing us from admitting it.

    New cool word to add to my vocabulary. Thanks, Pooja.

    Thatโ€™s a great message! I think less decorous people tend to be more down to earth. Itโ€™s weird to say that as a compliment without sounding insulting, but I say that through a place of love and appreciation. Thanks for educating through only 6 words.

  3. I totally forgot about the word after seeing the pic.
    You look adorable. Your hair looks smooth and soft
    And would you like to give some tips for skin??
    Kindly keep sharing. These kind of cover pics are the best. Tons of positivity โ˜€๏ธ.
    About the word, I have no clue what to write ๐Ÿ˜…

    1. Thanks so much. Lol it’s just good genes I literally do nothing for my skin. I do use vaseline sometimes because though because it’s the best moisturiser. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  4. Decorous sounds like an elegant word! Selfie pics are great. They’re fun and I take selfies with my kiddos all the time. I feel like they’re fun memory makers. Now as I’m getting older I get a little chocked by what I see sometimes but oh well, it’s part of life, right?! Good times.

  5. Decorous decorators show elan not panache.

    It’s hard to find the word alone in a positive sense — it seems to be used in contrast to a negative background as in Ruth Orkin’s “Girl in Italy” where she is decorous and they are not. It’s sort of like the word “sanguine” where people commonly say “not sanguine”.

  6. Never heard this word before! Decorous, the first thing that comes to my mind is decor or decoration hahaha. Well, there is nothing wrong with being obsessed with yourself and I can drink for that! as always you look gorgeous in the picture, this haircut is top notch๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

    It doesn’t take much to be decorous.

  7. I heard of this word, but I just thought it is like a decoration or something…Thank you for showing me the unconventional or conventional side of the word. I guess I am a person who try to be decorous but can’t, and end up screaming…

  8. Feets

    I would say Iโ€™m not decorous, but I still live in my society and use their products that get blasted in my face everyday. I stopped trying to apply particular standards onto me and others.

    It was something apart of the CBT where it said when you judge others, youโ€™re basing it of your standards (this is a very liberal definition) so I tried thinking about all the stuff that bugs me and didnโ€™t try to force it on myself. Itโ€™s still a working progress, but I gave up on a lot of mindsets that made me feel small and pathetic or like I wasnโ€™t trying to do things.๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพ

    1. It’s hard to live fully ethically in an unethical society. In fact, it’s pretty impossible not to give in to certain standards at least occasionally.
      Don’t be too hard on yourself. Glad you’re changed your mindsets that are doing you harm.
