Day 24, Friday: Your top 3 worst traits.
Oof, I have been dreading this post, so I might as well crank it out sooner than later.
- I am a worrier. Ever since I was a little girl, I was the one who would worry endlessly..even about stupid shit, like if I littered on the school yard, then someone would figure out it was me and I would be in BIG trouble. Or that the tone of someone’s voice or the words they choose means something different than what they say. This worry easily turns into anxiety and will keep me up at night or affect my eating habits etc. I think I have gotten better as I age, but there certainly still are some triggers that set it off.
- Independence. It can be great for many things, but sometimes I can be independent to a fault. I don’t like to ask for help. I have to have oral surgery soon and it took everything I had in me to ask my parents to help spot me the money. Or when I am head deep into a big work project and I need to ask others’ opinions. Often when I have to ask for help, my worry then kicks in. Hah! It’s a great combination, let me tell you!
- I internalize. Almost everything. I am a reflective person, an introvert, an INFJ, I am quiet and sometimes shy. Those combinations result in me keeping my emotions on the inside and bottled up. You are more likely to see me cry than for me to tell you what I am feeling. *Note: Crying doesn’t equal only sadness. I cry when I am sad, when I am frustrated, when I am mad/pissed, and when I simply do not know what I am feeling. I sometimes cry a lot. So good luck figuring that one out!
**Note: If you are someone I express my feelings to, well, consider yourself one of the few lucky ones. Hey, it’s gotta be better than guessing all those tears! 😛
