Negative Qualities

Negative qualities.  We all have them.  I prefer to focus on the positive, but hey, we all have a little something or another to work on to be, as I like to say, the best version of ourselves.  Sometimes our not-so-positive qualities are obvious to us and others need or will point them out.  Other times, we know exactly what they are, and how they come across to others.

I think in the world of blogging we often tend to portray a ‘picture perfect’ version of ourselves.  Why on earth would a blogger write something negative about themselves, or reveal something less than perfect?  However, I’m a real person, with real emotions and feelings and (gasp!) negative qualities.  There are the types of things I work on, on a daily basis.  Okay, sometimes I forget to work on them, and the bitch comes out, but I try, and that’s what counts, right?  Sort of.

My negative qualities come out when things aren’t going my way, when something is taking too long, when someone is asking too many questions.  In other words, I’m super impatient.  I get frustrated easily and have a hard time staying calm.  I am a big fan of yelling, and I honestly wish I could stop.  It’s not fun, attractive, nor fair.  Why can’t I speak out like a cool, calm and collected person?  As a self-proclaimed type-A personality, I have a hard time being easy-going, letting things go, and ‘rolling with it’.  I try to fight it, but it’s naturally me to be this way.  It’s not an excuse, it’s a fact, and it’s something I try to fight against. 

I aim to be the best version of myself, all the time.  Sometimes I slip up, we all do, but I work on it.  I work to turn those negative qualities into something a little less negative, to be a little bit better (even if it’s taking a deep breath or counting to three before totally losing my cool), and to be someone I would want to be friends with.

What are your negative qualities?  I dare you to comment, post, or discuss.  Not always easy, but certainly interesting.

PS – I’m always late.  Add that to the list.
