Embracing My Flaws

I’ve always tried my best to love myself, even though sometimes it can be a hard thing to do because we all know when we have bad days, we can look in the mirror or go about our daily lives and just see all these flaws! Do you know what though, even though I notice my flaws, I’m learning to love them, and I do want change them, I want to embrace them and be a good egg. I spoke previously about saying no one is perfect here and it came up on my timeline not so long ago and I wanted to expand upon it to show that we all struggle with certain things, it’s natural!

Flaws make you who you are, no one is perfect and that is okay. The important thing about life is you learn things about yourself everyday, I am still learning about myself and I’m 24 years old in August.

So what are my flaws?

I’m Impatient

Let’s be honest a lot of people are impatient but I am on a whole new scale. When it comes to waiting for something normally I badger anyone for answers, for example at Christmas when it comes to presents I always end up guessing what I have, that isn’t even a joke. It really annoys Paul.

I Hold A Grudge

I don’t forgive easily, but I think that is because of the things that I have been through, but I am learning to forgive a little quicker, love harder than ever and just be an overall good person. I’m not changing who I am, I think I am just more wary of people and the way I have been treated in the past.

I Can Be A Pessimist

I tend to think on the negative side a lot of the time but my thoughts behind that one is because if it is a positive outcome then it’s all well and good. I guess I’m just being prepared!

I’m Slightly Needy

I kid I’m super needy, I think sometimes I just want to know that someone isn’t going to leave me and that they still want to be around me. I get super worried when someone reads a message and they don’t reply, I’m like oh my god what have I done wrong! I know I’ve done nothing wrong I might have just caught them at a bad time.

I Get Really Defensive

I am so protective over myself and the people that I love so when I get defensive which is normally a very good thing, I get very angry, I have absolutely no control over my emotions and the way it comes out. I normally shout like a silly person because I think I’m doing the right thing at the time.

The overall meaning of this post is accept yourself, love yourself and if there are things you want to work on, go for it! I’m going to be working on these as much as possible because it is so important, but also loving myself at the same time. Don’t beat yourself up because of your flaws, embrace them and learn from them.

    Such a great post – and perfect message. One of my flaws is definitely overthinking things and thinking pessimistically, but I think I’ve improved on that a lot lately! You’re absolutely right, our flaws make us who we are, and as long as they’re not hurting ourselves or those around us, we need to embrace them or make little attempts to change them, without changing who we are.

    Many people’s flaws are thinking that they have no flaws, which is rather naive.

    We all have flaws, and as long as we acknowledge that, we can work on them.

    One of my many flaws, I think, is that I don’t let people in too easily. I also lack self-belief which is one that I’m definitely working on!

    I love your posts…and this one is no exception!

    This is a really important post! Like everyone else, I have flaws but I think it’s important to differentiate from a “flaw” to a “personality trait”, it’s a personality trait of mine to get obsessive about SOME things but that doesn’t have to be a bad thing!xx

    We all have flaws and it’s important that we, and everyone else, accepts that because no-one is immune to flaws! Plus I think I qualify for having most of these too! Having flaws doesn’t mean we’re bad people – we’re just normal!

    I appreaciate your honesty in this post! 🙂 It is not easy to write down the things we usually try to hide from other people. But also this post gives a better understanding that we all are humans and there are reasons behind our behavior. It makes me understand more ‘strangers’ who might react inadequate in a situation or at least inadequate in my opinion.
    Lots of love,

    100% agree with this post! It’s okay to have flaws because you wouldn’t be human otherwise. They’re just parts of we need to work on whilst also embracing all the lovely aspects of our personalities too! Xx
