worst habits

another day, another challenge...

Day 24, Friday: Your top 3 worst traits

1. over-thinking everything. no really. there isn't much of anything i don't totally rip to shreds in my mind over-thinking. i mean get down to the nitty-grittys. seriously. i can build something up in my head so good. its awesome. only its not. medical stuff? i have passed out (no really, i lost consciousness. not just a figure of speech) because i over-thought something so much that i overdid myself. its completely ridiculous. i wish i could turn it off. but ya. doesn't work that way.

2. worry-wort. in line with number one, i worry like a fool. someone is flying? i worry. someone is going on a road trip? i worry. someone is driving to work everyday (erm... ya)? i worry. everyday when i pray, i always start by asking for everyone i care about (that's a lot of people) to be safe. to arrive safely to work and that they are safe while they are at work and as they drive home from work. seriously. i worry so much its ridiculous. and really bad for my health as it turns out.

3. putting everyone else first. this isn't always a bad habit obviously but sometimes it can be too much. sometimes i forget to put myself and my needs first and even when i do say no, i feel too guilty to follow through and end up giving in anyway. even when i may really really need that time to do something for my job or my business or just myself. i worry so much about other people's feelings. a week ago i spent 4 hours cleaning out my sister's closet for her and then told her i needed to head home to work on business stuff. i could tell she was disappointed and it ate at me so much. i need to learn to put myself first every once in awhile.

come one, tell me yours.

Amen I would totally add worse case scenario predictor in my case. I worry all the time, I put everybody else ahead of me including the people I never should have even cared for in the first place, over thinking yes sir, but worst case scenario.........this one is probably one at the top one. My head hurts....I tstart thinking that it is probably smething bad and that I am going to die, and leave my little baby all by herslef........turns out I just need water..... sigh 90% of stress is cause by my worst case scenarios and worrying for stuff that is only hppening in my head. Would love to find out a GOOD way to get rid of that!!

I am an over thinker and worrier too. I have a hard time making decisions because of it. It's a good and bad trait.

I am with you on #1! It's such a problem I am almost incapable of making any kind of decision because I'll over think myself out of everything!
