We all have our faults, some more than others, which is acceptable since no one is perfect, but everybody has that ONE flaw that is truly problematic. If you were the hero of an epic, it would be that one flaw that would lead to your downfall. What would that flaw be?

Mine, for example, would be my profound lack of self-confidence which makes it difficult for me to take the initiative in things such as socializing and pursuing goals or relatively meaningful friendships. It sucks because when it comes down to things, having faith in oneself and one's own abilities goes a long way.



I took some artistic liberties. I hope no one minds.

I become a diff person when I'm in love... Become a control freak and really needy. I realize it, but can't stop myself...

I'm extremely shy, I have a really hard time going up and talking to people I don't know.

Lately, an inability to ignore laziness in coworkers and the resentment is building lol.

I'm just too freaking nice. Straight up. I can't count the many times that I have allowed Myself to go out on a limb for Others...Often times, I may not even KNOW THEM too well...! But I guess that I'm just One of those People that likes to imagine that, Yes - even Online through the Internet, that when Someone gives Me their word, or tells Me that something is going to happen, I take it as golden. And then, inevitably when I DO get BURNED and hurt, for whatever reason or occurrence at this particular happenstance, I always say to Myself, "Nope. Never again." And I know that I'm lying to Myself before the thought even gets processed. But I guess, that's just Who I am. I like to believe in the GOOD of Others, no matter what. I think to Myself, "How would I want to be treated?" 99% of the time, throughout the Using of Internet however, this is NOT the type of Flaw that You want to have...

Still...That's who I am though. I know the term, "I'm not like those other People" - or whatever, is SUPER played out...But in My case, I try My DAMNDEST to make it the truth regarding Me. And Yes, though it gets Me more misery than One can believe, at least I stuck to "My guns" in the End, and didn't get brought down to whichever kind of level the Other may have been trying to make happen.

That attribute is a strong second of mine, but no complaints so far.

^This, unless I have a purpose disconnected from my own desire (usually work or some common goal) I don't really know how to approach the situation.

Social Anxiety.
I'm also still holding onto a lot of resentment and bitterness from my childhood and the past 5 years in particular.

This for me. As well as a lack of self-confidence in getting to know people for more than just a simple conversation. I do work in retail after all, so am working with the general public all the time, so have plenty of confidence with that. Just not with getting to know people better in a more meaningful way. These two things combined make it really easy for people to walk over me at times and take advantage of me. >.> Luckily I've learned from my mistakes in the past and have learned when I need to say no, but sometimes I just can't, depending on the situation and who they are.

Wow, are You like the 6 Year older, Female version of Myself? Haha, for real though...I'm glad to Someone else is able to acknowledge this as One of their major character Flaws...It's so complicated, and like You said, it's all depending upon that certain situation that would be dealt with at that point in time....I just allow Myself to get taken advantage of. It's CERTAINLY nothing that I look for sorrow to be given to Me over, as I realize that while I'm ATTEMPTING at doing RIGHT...In the END, I'm doing WRONG...Regarding MYSELF....

I wish the best to the both of Us!

I'm extremely indecisive and often change my mind about doing things before I can even start doing them.
