#27. Something I really hate about myself is…
I really hate answering these types of questions, because I find I’m the type of person to dwell on my negative attributes, obsess over them and become very unhappy.
But honestly, there are lots of things I hate about myself. Some days I hate how I look, I hate that I’m fat, I hate that I’m short, I hate that I have a weird callous on my one finger, or that I have a cyst. Some days I hate how unmotivated I am, how lazy I can be, how unproductive I am. Some days I hate that I can’t sing, that I can’t dance, and that I can’t roll my “r”s. I hate that I hate parts about myself sometimes, and I hate how easily other people can make me feel bad about myself.
I think the best way to really answer this question though, is to say that: I really hate how I can let myself get bogged down with my imperfections, instead of embracing them. Some days I do a really good job of this, some days not so much. I guess it’s hard when people get hung up at my imperfections, because it makes it easier for me to become obsessed with them.
Really though, I don’t try to sit here and think “Gee, I hate me” – because I don’t. It’s too easy to hate yourself, it’s too easy to just let everything overwhelm you and be unhappy. I think that’s a really cheap way to go through life. It’s much more fulfilling to work hard and feel something great in the end.
