Day 24: Your top 3 worst traits.
I should have asked Jason to guest-post for this one. He gets to see all my worst traits (but still likes to hang out with me, bless his heart).
1. I have an explosive temper, and when I’m angry I tend to say things (OK, scream things) that come back to haunt me. Yes, I have spent the last decade working on this. Yes, it’s better than it used to be. No, I haven’t fixed it. I am generally successful at keeping my anger off Facebook and my blog. If you wouldn’t want it read at your funeral, don’t write it down.
2. I am sometimes paralyzed by a lack of self-esteem. When someone is nice to me, I second-guess it to death. She can’t possibly like me, she’s way too pretty/smart/thin/cool. I get sweaty-palms nervous at the idea of asking someone new to do friend-things, like go to lunch. It’s insane.
3. I worry. I worry about things I can’t control; I worry about things I can control. I over-analyze issues, talk things out with my steering wheel, and generally spend WAY too much time dissecting problems that may or may not be real. Good times.
