I’m hella insecure.
What a way to start a post! I am though, insecure that is. A fact an awesome fellow blogger pointed out to me. It tends to touch everything I do, turning my love for things into hate. It’s what makes me put disclaimers on my stories. It’s what makes me a mean perfectionist. I know I’m good, but you don’t know I’m good so I have to convince you.
My friend Bug pointed out that my lack of confidence stems from my need for approval. I tend to want to be everything to everyone at the expense of myself. Do I want things because that’s what I want or because that’s what’s expected of me? The result is I’m not sure who I am or if I like the person that is “me”. Scary, scary thought.
Bug then suggested I make a few lists. With the aim being an exploration and subsequent understanding of myself. One is a list of tangible things I want to do, another is a things to do/see/have by the new year, and the last is things I want for myself. I’ll share one list with ya.
