30 Days Of Truth- Day 1

I liked doing my Truth post so much that I went in search of something else like it and found http://punchitin.wordpress.com/.  Oddly enough, her blog roll includes many of the blogs I read however I had never visited this blog until I found it through google the most amazing tool ever created.  I am all about stealing off other blogs new things so here we have 30 days of truth.  Which is more like 30 weeks of truth since I plan to only post once a week.  Actually, there is no plan outside of the fact that when I feel like it, I will post a Day of Truth.  Cause the truth is, I wanted to post this weeks ago.  I didn’t get to be President of the procrastination club by doing things in a timely manner, that is for sure!

And thus it begins…

Day 1: Something you hate about yourself

The truth is, I don’t truly hate anything about myself.  Hate is a strong word.  But I don’t let myself off the hook that easy…there are a few things I dislike:

I dislike my low fuse…I tend to let really little things bother me.  And the fact that they bother me, bothers me.  I cannot stand when I know I have flipped out over something stupid, especially when it is happening and I cannot stop it even if I want to.  This is something I have been working on and will continue to work on throughout 2011.

I dislike my disdain for change…I am a creature of habit.  I like everything a certain way.  I struggle with change.  Change of plans, change of heart…change of any kind. 

I dislike how much pressure I put on myself…I suppose if you read this blog you are already aware of the fact that I pressure myself.  I put such an insane amount of this pressure on myself that I have literally made myself sick over it before. 

I dislike that I am short. You would think after 29 years I would be over it. You would think, since I’ll be short the rest of my life, I would have come to terms with it. Nope. Still dislike the shortness!

I would love it if you all commented a little truth about yourselves…either here, or if you are interested in challenging yourself to the same project.  What do you hate (or dislike) about yourself?

  1. I don’t think I can take on a project of this magnitude on a daily basis, but I love that you are. This is a great idea. I really don’t hate anything about myself either, but I will take your idea of dislikes. I dislike that I am dependent on the approval of others, whether it be my wife, boss, dog or anybody else. I continually want to please them and make sure I’m viewed in a positive light, almost to a fault.

  2. Hey, how did I miss this!

    The short thing cracked me up! The only time being short bothers me is when I need to get a chair to pick something off a shelf that’s too high… ANNOYING! I also wonder how different the world looks if you are 6’10’ or something.

  3. I love this! I might try to do something like that but I already feel backlogged on my blog as it is.
    Things I dislike about myself:
    My face gets CRAZY RED when I work out… or am in the sun/heat/humidity and it’s usually not sunburn because I wear spf. But everyone comments about how “sunburnt” I am. Annoying to have people tell you that all the time.

  4. I don’t hate anything about myself either, don’t like the word hate.

    I dislike my tummy. I’m quite happy with the rest of my body but this balloon is always bothering me.

    I dislike it that I have discipline to do a lot of things but not when it comes to eating less.

  5. Thanks for the bloggy love. 🙂 Another thing I dislike about myself is that I loathe confrontation and sometimes it leads to my own unhappiness. Like, there have been times when I know I should address a situation that’s bothering me with the person who is causing the situation, but (apparently) I would rather sit around and let my rage stew under the surface. It’s awesome, really. 😉

  6. I love that you said there’s nothing you hate about yourself! I dislike that I can’t cook. It gets in the way of the whole healthy training thing…

  7. I dislike my teeth… they’re crooked and I get after myself for not wearing my retainer as religiously as I should have after getting braces off!

    I dislike how I doubt and discredit myself, but I’m not entirely sure how to fully engage self-confidence!

    Like Kandi mentioned, I hate how red my skin gets. If I blush, it stays red for hours. I get really red when I exercise. And if I haven’t even enough I flush and it lingers.

    You’re so right though, hate is such a strong word. I’m glad you can’t bring yourself to apply it to your feelings toward yourself.

  8. Being a 5’1″ member of the short club myself, I can relate. This is where 6’4″ Husband really comes in handy. Every time I say, “Husband, come here. I need you.” His reply is usually, “What do you need me to reach now?” Ha!

    Something I dislike about myself…..how easily I can talk myself out of doing something and how mad I get with myself for letting myself get talked out of it. Grr!

  9. You are hate is such a strong word. I used to hate my hips, I guess I just dislike them now. I wish they weren’t so disproportional but I am coming to terms with my legs and hips and seeing them as part of myself and accepting them. I think that is about it.

  10. I dislike that sometimes I don’t speak up for myself. I am getting better but it has taken me years.
    I generally dislike my weight.
    I dislike myself when I am tired because I get so grumpy.

  11. I liked the first paragraph or so justifying why you were making this weekly/whenever you felt like it 😉

    Get some hooker heels, shawty.

    I dislike that I hold grudges easily/for too long. I dislike how I have such a “save money” mindset that I feel guilty whenever I spend any.

  13. What a great topic. I think that I dislike that I always catch a “grass is greener” virus. It makes me always strive for more but makes me perpetually unhappy with what I have.
