**I had a writing prompt that I wrote and working on and wanted to share. It is about my flaws, what they are and how I feel about them. Might be familiar with some of what you read in this blog post because I share my true feelings from time to time. Still wanted to share this it’s everything in one lol.**
The writing prompt was: Write down the flaws that make you perfect the way you are.
I feel that my flaws are Trust issues, insecurity in my writing and self-publishing, self-doubt, control, and a bad attitude most of the time.
My flaws make me perfect the way I am because I feel like the trust issues that I have keep me alert to new people I met, and I keep them at a distance. I have trust issues because those close to me betrayed me. Most people think of someone cheating on you and that is what brings trust issues in people. But no for me it is everybody, I have had friends do me wrong and betray my trust and also have had family betray me. And at this point, I am damn sick of it and that is why I do not trust too many people. This flaw could be a terrible thing to others but for me, I am very aware of it and honest about it. The next thing is my insecurity in getting my book done and published. I am not going to lie I fear it, maybe scared of what type of feedback I would receive. I think I take my time with it; I want it to be perfect. Also, I do not know too much about publishing or self-publishing, so I am trying to do some research before I put my work out there for the public to read. Another insecurity in my writing is the promoting and marketing of it all. I need to get out of my shell and make things happen. Another flaw is being scared to take risks. I need to get out of that and fast.
The self-doubting is a flaw. I second guess myself all the time, which is not good but something I am aware of and working on. My controlling habits, I tend to want to be in control of everything around me. Like I hate to sit back and not be a part of something that I think I should be a part of. Also controlling in a way that I want others to do as I say when I say, I get irritated if they don’t or if I feel they are moving too slow for my liking. I know crazy right? I am also working on that as well as a bad attitude.
I say these flaws make me perfect the way I am because I am fully aware of what areas I need to work on, and I am honest with people about my flaws. Though I feel I am perfect with these flaws I know that some things need to change. I can admit what my strength and weaknesses are and still be proud of who I am. No shame, why because I am a work in progress, striving to get better
Have a better way of thinking and a better life. My flaws make me perfect the way I am. Not meaning perfect in anything but perfect for me.
Do you have flaws that make you perfect the way you are? Care to share? Thoughts?
Thank you for reading.
