    I made a thread earlier this week in regards to an incident that happened between a relative and after some soul searching and looking back I realized I have some severe flaws that are getting in a way of a better future.

    For example:

    Procrastination: I tend to think that once I figure out or get everything to be perfect then I won't take action or I over-analyze things and find negative scenarios that it might backfire or its a bad idea and that I should just be happy with what I have.

    Worrying/Anxiety: I find that everything has to be perfect, if anything goes wrong then thats it I failed, when I viewed this character flaw of mine, I was enraged with myself since this type of behaviour is shared by chicks who want to have the "perfect" wedding day.

    Excessive Assumption: sometimes I get angry at little things and I start over-analyzing it other than letting it go and looking to take control of my actions for a better future. Its more like "what did he mean by that" "What was that suppose to mean?"


    Overthinking: ofcourse everything I wrote comes from the same source which is overthinking, its good that I think but I don't take enough actions to make a profoundly positive change in my own life.

    I am doing everything I can to change these behaviours and become a better person like going to see a hypnotherapist to see if I can somehow change my pattern of thoughts.

    So with that in mind, what about you guys, what kind of personality flaws do you guys have that hinders your potential for a better future as well as a better relationship?

    I worry about important things. You know, things like the significance of the setup man for the closer in baseball, or why the fuck do my toenails take so long to grow. I mean I can cut my finger nails 3 times to every 1 for my toes.

    I often spend many sleepless nights wondering whether or not Britney Spears has the body to be a natural bodybuilder.

    Procrastination. Impatience.


    Do you have 3 times as many fingers as toes? Or are some of your toes missing toenails?

    honesty. Don't ask me to be honest, you will get the cold brutality of the truth and you won't like it one bit.

    You can solve all of that by saying "no offence."

    People seem to think that's a green light to say anything. Whenever someone says to you "no offence," prepare to be offended.

    oh my god, there are so many.

    delusional optimism, horrible procrastinator (this isn't laziness, it's terrible anxiety), i embarrass easily, i am incredibly sensitive to people's opinions of me.

    it is really hard for me to take risks.

    Procrastination and lack of assertiveness. I slid by on my intelligence for years without real work, and now it's hard for me. I lost my dad when I was young and I need approval, so people like to ask me for favors and to take shifts, while I am simultaneously terrified of rejection. I don't have any long term goals, so like a goldfish I grow to the limits of my environment and then stop. I have a terrible time ending toxic relationships, while at the same time having the ability to make needy women attached to me. I'm very witty off the cuff and able to maintain a neutral persona, so people don't know the majority of my time is spent wondering if it hurts to hang yourself.
