2) Write about your worst personality trait or bad habit. Be honest; none of this "My worst habit is that I'm so kind to everyone...blah blah blah." Time to fess up! (And, since you are aware of this bad habit or trait, is there a reason you haven't changed?)
Oh crap Nicole - do you realize you opened a can of worms with this one?!?
I could choose to write about this:
OR A NUMBER OF ANY OTHER BAD HABITS
Honestly, my jumping to conclusions has improved greatly over the last year. Yeah sometimes I find myself jumping from lily pad to lily pad, but I can quickly stop myself - so I guess the first choice isn't the one.
REACTING BEFORE THINKING
yep I admit it, I react before thinking things through more often than not (ie: knee jerk responses). It has to be one of the worst habits I have. This response isn't to everything that happens in my life, but in things that I have emotionally attached myself to or if I feel like I am being attacked. Case in point, I had someone tell me that they hadn't been honest with me like they promised. I felt violated & hurt and I let it be known - afterwards I regretted the way I worded some things. But as soon as I heard that, I went on the defense.
I don't mean to have these responses - I HATE that I do. I wish that there was a magical switch that I could turn that part of my brain off, alas there is not. However, when I feel my hackles start to raise, I do try some breathing exercises to slow down the adrenaline rush so that I am less likely to "call it as I see it". It's better, but a long way from being fixed. I'm sure it will take many years to correct itself seing as how it has had 32 years to develop
