Hey, watch me pull a skeleton out of my closet

What is something you dislike about yourself?

Wow. So, this question comes from writing prompts, which comes via Petra who decided to use it for blogging inspiration, and I volunteered to do it with her. And that’s the first question/prompt. Wow.

Well, that would be my lack of self-control. I was stunned a few weeks ago to finally see that I am a binger. I binge eat, drink, read, game, sleep (ok, used to binge sleep, and would love to still be able to), shop, watch movies/shows, whatever, as long as it is in some way unhealthy personally, spiritually, financially, or relationally.

My acknowledgement of my lack of self-control goes back to my 2-months ago blog post where I asked what I am going to sacrifice. Well, heck. I’ve never denied myself anything, ever. Ever. Ok, I take that back. I did a 24 hour fast completely once. A couple of weeks ago I fasted 8 meals over 4 days.

Yep, no self-control. I do not like that about myself.

    Self control? I just go with the flow. LOL

    Yeah, that’s what I’ve done for years. :sigh:

    Hmmm. Well, I wish I had a thicker skin. Sometimes I do, but other times I can be overly sensitive. So yeah, I hear you about the menopause stuff. LOL. It gets better though. Hang in there!

      Well, there is a flip side to having a thicker skin, and that is the tendency to not be as sensitive to how something might be perceived by someone with a thinner skin. The think-skinned tend to unintentionally hurt feelings because of the lack of sensitivity. Hence, I have to watch my mouth. LOL

      I would feel much better about the whole menopause thing if my monthly visits would stop. 😉

    I sometimes spend money I don’t have for some quick satisfaction that is gone by the time I get home. I hate that.

      That’s under my umbrella of no self-control. In fact, I was just sitting here thinking that I would probably be a lot more productive with a margarita. Which I wouldn’t really… 😉
