I actually thought about making this thread yesterday... Since I didn't, I suppose I will participate in yours.
I'm a bad person because I'm not going to be pissed off alone. I'm just not. The husband, kids, other family, friends, etc. are not going to shaft me,
leave me pissed and go off to have a nice day. Nope. Not going to happen. If you dish it out you will shortly find that I will not sit in pissed off
misery alone. The "giver" will join in momentarily at ludicrous costs at times. Childish personified? You betcha.... Sad? Absolutely. That's why it's
I have a damned hard time letting a fight go. Sometimes I can't shut up. Even if I know a fight would end and the rest of the night could be peaceful
if I would just forego saying something that I'm feeling about the situation.... I can't let it go. I have to say it. I feel ripped off if you get to
speak your mind and I don't get the same treatment simply because "you're done" now. I may not be done.
I nitpick on occasion. I sometimes know when I am doing it and am almost helpless to stop it.
I will go out of my way not to appear weak. I would hobble on bloody stubs before I would cry out for help if it were at all possible. I will go out
of my way to not appear to be weak or cowed by my husband. I can not stand the thought that someone might think he rules the roost and I only exist
through his benevolence. I will work harder, lift more, do more, than another person just to make sure others don't think I am too small, too weak to
hold my own.
I hold grudges. Forever. If I feel I have been slighted... I'm done. Period. It's rare that I will let something go and move on when it comes to
someone doing me, my family, or friends wrong. I'm ride or die, and if I find out someone else isn't the same... I'm just done. I don't spare a
thought for you or your well being anymore after that. Ever.
On the positive side of those faults is that I'm straight up loyal. Loyal even to a fault if the same consideration is afforded to me. I can forgive a
few in my life damn near anything because they are more important to me than.... Well... Me. I will not sell anyone out that has counted on that
loyalty. Not for any price. I'm a damned hard worker and I'll be the first in line to do any job you need done or help you with anything you need help
with. I don't mind sweating or getting my hands dirty. If you call and need my help at any time day or night... I'm there. I hate to see people
hurting. I hate to see children hurting. I hate injustice.
There's more like there is for all of us. We all have faults and we all have pluses. Things that make us ugly if we let them grow, or takeover, and
things that make us lovable, humble, etc. It's human nature. I think when we can see these faults and pluses in ourselves and are aware of their
existence, that is a step in the right direction. At least we can somewhat mitigate how they make us act, think or feel if we try to. Not being aware
of one's faults is far more dangerous IMO.
