Day 8: Describe the good, the bad, and the ugly about yourself. . . .Well this could go a bunch of different ways couldn’t it?Let’s get started shall we. …The Good:~I care about people, a lot. I’m always investing myself in someone/someway in hopes that i can help. ~I like to smile, a lot…and i’ve been told i have a good smile. Meh, it’s alright i guess.
Ok, yes…i post-dated this entry.
I was going to try to be slightly deceiving and act like i posted it late last night…but i couldn’t.
Lying is not something i like to do.
. . .
~I like to clean…which makes for a tidier house and less stress.
~I love hanging out with teenagers. I like investing in them, encouraging them, building them up, and help guiding them from making mistakes and to make good choices across the board.
~I’m honest, sometimes to a fault, but i’m never ashamed to tell someone how i feel.
~Just like the first one, i care about people, a lot. This is a double-edged sword and it gets my heart in trouble a lot.
~I can be a little bossy. Ok, i’ve been known to be really bossy sometimes. I think it comes from being a first-born, type-a, independent personality. I learned at a young age that change is constantly happening and you have to be dependent on yourself.
~That honesty….yeah more of then than not it’s confrontational. I don’t think confrontation is a bad thing AT ALL, i think it’s all in how you approach it. I’ve gotten better at confronting lovingly.
~I ruin pictures…constantly.
…but apparently it runs in the family, and my brother and I both ruin pictures.
~When it comes to projects/DIY, i jump around a lot. Some rooms could probably be completely finished if it wasn’t for me jumping around to different places.
~Also, i make duck-faces way more than any human being ever should.
~When i get angry….i get angry. I get this fiery look in my eyes, my hearing lessens, and i feel my body temperature go up a few degrees. It isn’t pretty. It does take a great deal to make me hit that point (deceit, back-stabbing, etc), but once i do…please avoid me.
~I’ve been known to say some hateful things. When i hit that point of super-upset some things just slip out of my mouth. I’ve learned that words really hurt and i have gotten so much better at controlling what i allow to come out of my mouth and how i re-act. Now’a’days i do my best to pause, think about what i feel i need to say, and then say it instead of just spitting it out. I also do my best to seek wise counsel (if time permits) before responding to someone.
~I can be a little bit of a control freak sometimes…again this is a trait i’m working on.
~oh my gosh this hairstyle when i was younger. I had it all the time, and i wish someone just said, “no, stop…you’ll thank me later”
Hot right? not.
