I hate today's assignment. I don't hate a lot of things, but I hate today's. I'm already hypercritical of myself, but then to have to sit down and share the top three worst traits about me...well that just sucks. I asked M the other night about what he thought my top three were, one of which happened to be my ADD. He hadn't read that blog post yet though. So here goes...
I'm emotional. I try to justify this as me being super passionate and full of life, but in reality, I'm a simply an emotional person. I cry at anything, happy or sad. I get upset over the silliest things (although this has gotten better), and I just seem to feel too much, at least by society's standards. Everything that I don't like about myself though, I try to justify. And I like to think that, in reality, I'm just passionate.
I'm bad at finishing things. I have a lot of unfinished projects. It's kind of a weird trait to list. But I have a tendency of starting things, or even planning to start things, and then not following through. I don't have this issue in the office, but in my own little world, including this blog, I'm not good at it. I have a list of things that I want to do, but haven't been done. This mostly pertains though to my writing. I'm not where I should be with my writing. And I could say that giving up writing my blog every day to write would be great for me, but I'm struggling to finish out these 31 days of blogging.
I'm too hard on myself. Whether it's how I look, making a mistake or forgetting to do something, I tend to get overly upset about it. Then I give myself a mental beating about it. I guess this ties back to my emotional trait, but I do this a lot. No one really sees or knows this about me, but I do it all the time. All. The. Time. And I think that it's just something I'll have to work on by myself. No matter how much encouraging that someone might give or reassurance that it's okay, I'm still going to be hard on myself.
And that's all I have to say about that.
We're off for the weekend for M's parents to finally meet my parents. I think it's about time since we live together and have dated for almost 2.5 years. Have a great weekend friends!
P.S. I'll still be keeping up with the Every Day May thing.
