My 3 Worst Traits

Prompt: Your top 3 worst traits

Guys, you just don’t know how excited I am to write this post.

I have been waiting to write this post ever since I stumbled upon the Blog Everyday in May challenge. You would think that I would have written it before 10:30 p.m., but it is what it is.

Anyway, I know how therapeutic it can be to accept that you are not perfect. If you have ever met a recovering addict, they will tell you “the first step to recovery is to acknowledge you have a problem.” Well, I hope by admitting that I am not perfect and I have some really bad traits, that I can begin to fix them. That works, right? I hope.

1. I hold grudges. I am one of those people that if you do something to me, I want to get you back worse. I feel the need to give everyone a taste of their own medicine. It’s horrible and I know it, but I am working on it. I realize that holding on to grudges seeps into everything you do and say and it has held me back from having meaningful relationships.

2. I don’t speak my mind enough. I hate this about myself and my friends don’t like it either. I always bite my tongue mainly because I am timid and typically scared how others would perceive my statements. Because of this, I avoid confrontations at all cost. I usually just cut people off instead of working through the issue, but I am working on it.

3. I am selfish. I think about myself way tooo much. Again, I am working on it.

Whew! That was NOT as easy as I thought it would be, but sometimes the hardest thing in your life are the most rewarding.

What are some of the traits that you are working on?

  • I am working on knowing that I can have all the things that I want for myself, and knowing that I deserve them. Also, time management so I can put in the work to have them.

    I admire you being open with your readers about the things that you’re working on.

    • She’s Facing Freedom

      Good for you! That’s a hard one because sometimes it feels like certain things are obtainable, but your journey proves that is not the case. If you continue to work hard for what you want, the sky is the limit. Oh, and I totally need to work on time management.
