If I Could Change One Thing About Myself

“If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?”


If I could change one thing about myself is to not be dateless and actually have a boyfriend, duh. Haha! Kidding. I have actually embraced my single-hood for the first time in a long time, but that will have to be for another post. It kills you, I know.

Truthfully, I’d have to say that I would change two things because I like to think they go hand in hand. I think I would change the fact that I am very sensitive to the point where I take things to heart from people whether they are my friends or guys I’m interested in dating. Last week when that guy joked about the Halloween costume I could have laughed it off, but I took it to heart and felt he was being rude. Maybe if I wasn’t so sensitive, him and I could have had a date soon, but that’s of course not going to happen because I gave him the boot with my butt hurt self. Thinking of it now I may have been too sensitive, but it did not help that he was joking constantly and we hadn’t even met. You win some you lose some.

The second thing that I would change is for me to not over analyze everything as I had mentioned in Someday I Will… A prime example that comes to mind is last Friday my friend had said something to me and my sensitive self took it hard as if she was being ugly towards me when in reality that was not her intention. The over analyzer in me thought all weekend that she must have had a bone to pick with me and that’s why she acted the way she did. When I finally talked it over with her, it became obvious to me that I was over thinking yet again because she had no beef or bone to pick with me. I could give some other examples of my over analyzing antics, but I’m not that cruel. I will spare you guys.

Not to say that I won’t work on these two traits about myself because I think they are things that can be improved upon, but just stating the facts.

What about y’all? If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
