I am flawed but isn’t everyone?
My worst quality would have to be that I take care of everyone else before I take care of me. I do not like to say no. So, of course, when someone, mainly family, ask me for help, I immediately say yes. I do not give myself time to think it over. I do not take the time to talk about it with my husband, either.
I try to please everyone because I do not like upsetting people. I do not like having anyone mad at me. So, instead I say yes. In my heart, I am screaming NO!!!
I truly do not know how to say no. Thanks to my wonderful husband, I am learning. NO is slowly becoming a word that I am learning to say.
Another flaw that I have is being a perfectionist. I enjoy doing counted cross-stitch. I’ve done it many years. If I find a mistake, I will sit here and rip out all the thread just to fix that one tiny little error. I do not care if it is just one little stitch. Something inside me goes crazy and I have to immediately fix the problem. A little voice says, “You best be fixing that. The person you are giving this to will find it and will no doubt throw it away!”
I am flawed. I am not perfect. I need to learn to accept that fact.
May your day be filled with sunshine!
