I am not an easy person to get along with. I don’t care about anybody other than myself. My life is centered around myself. And I am so selfish.
These are things that I know about myself. I’ve lived with myself for 25 years now and I know that I am not an easy person to get along with. On the exterior, I can be very nice. If you get to know me better, you’ll find that I don’t like a lot of people. I’m introverted. I would rather spend tons of time by myself than to be around people 24/7. As I admit all of this, I also know that I could do better. I need to fix my flaws. I don’t like these negative traits. And they have brought nothing in my life other than hurt. I’m not saying that this year will be the year that I make some changes, but I’m not saying I won’t make any changes this year either.
I’ve learned that I think too much about other people. Even though I try to do my own thing, my mind can’t help but wander to think about what other people want from me. I am easily affected by criticisms or people talking about me. I don’t have a strong skin for these kinds of things. And ultimately, I know that this will ruin my life eventually.
I need to be by myself to focus. All of these things are extraneous and not necessary for me to reach my goals. If I look past everything, I know that I can be successful. I need to be a strong woman. I will do what I need to do. The path to success is lonely, but I must travel on this road by myself.
One thought on “What I’ve learned about myself”
I enjoyed this greatly. It brought back quite a few memories from when I first began my self-inventory process. Big props for being able to both recognize, and write about it!
