Something You Hate About Yourself.
One of the reasons I started blogging, or rather started journaling back when I first learned to write, was to get to myself better. Whenever I feel a little lost about who I am all it takes is me writing here to get a little push. I’m actually in a pretty good place right now but I thought I’d jump on this meme wagon.
Day 01 – Something you hate about yourself.
I think the quality in myself I hate the most is how judgemental I can be. I’m not judgemental about race or sexuality or income but I do have this idea in my head about how I think people should be. This quote by David Sedaris rings so true:
I haven’t the slightest idea how to change people, but still I keep a long list of prospective candidates just in case I should ever figure it out.
I try to remind myself that I can’t change people, people have to want to change. Some things I’m judgemental about I think are justified while other things are completely pointless. This is not something I’m proud of and in fact something I really hate to admit. I think it’s partly an age thing, I never used to be this opinionated.
I will say though that when I step over the line I will admit it and apologize, it happens. I think the internet age makes it easy to judge others while keeping a safe distance. It’s a lot harder to judge people when you have to do it face to face.
