Is there anything about yourself that annoys you?Page 6 of 6    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
I'm not even going to start listing as I fear I'd be here all day... :)

I have my flaws and issues, I acknowledge them and I try best I can to change them, or work around them.

None of us are perfect and having any illusions to the contrary is perhaps the worst flaw a person can possess as it allows no room for growth.

Sprite - I used to be the same as you. If I wasn't worrying about something specific, I was worrying about what I had missed that I should be worrying about haha.

These days I think I have gone a bit too far the other way. Hopefully it's because I have got my life to a place where I have dealt with my major worries or know that I can't change things so worrying is pointless but I still worry about things that don't really matter. I allow myself these worries because I know they don't make a major difference in my life - it's my trade off to myself lol.

I get annoyed with myself for being spectacularly awful at remembering names and faces. Considering I currently work in the pastoral office at a school, this is NOT helpful. There are some students I do remember, but not many. I'm polite and helpful, but some pupils need a reality check. There are 1,000 kids in this school, so unless they're a regular in the pastoral office, or there's a particular reason I'm supposed to know about them, then I WILL ask their name.
Some people seem to think I'm being rude, like I'm implying that they're forgettable or something, or that I just can't be bothered to learn their name. :( This is really not the case - it's just that I actually have a problem linking names and faces.

I'm annoyed that I'm what people might call "slow". I don't feel unintelligent, and I got nicely average grades in school.... but I just tend to take a minute or so longer to process things in my head. This leads to some people thinking I'm rather stupid, or that I haven't heard or understood them when they give me instructions. For example, I burnt myself a few weeks ago (not badly at all), and in the 30 seconds or so that I was just processing the information in my head to go to turn on the tap, my dad told me to run my hand under cold water, as if I hadn't thought of that.
This slowness annoys me, as I spend half the time being told things I already know/am just about to do, if they'd give me a minute or two to process it. Argh.

he list of my faults that annoy me is so long I wonder why anyone dates me.

I am not well organized.
I procrastinate when there is something I don't want to do.
I flirt too much.
I am too aggressive at times, too passive other times.
I can be a perfectionist.
I don't care what other people think.

And these are just the top 6.

What annoys me about myself is that I find too many people incredibly irritating...I just simply don't have the patience for idiocy at all!!

But is that not too blinkered ? I thought that understanding ,excepting and tolerance of others is what happens as we get older and develop a better balance and perspective of life?
" I don't suffer fools .. " is the most irritating of sayings for me. I have often heard that term used by people who are not the brightest in the world when it comes to common sense.
The same goes for " I call a spade a spade" or " I tell it as it is".and other blinkered sayings.

My ability to invest trust in someone close,or who was close goes on unwavered despite my doubts just because I think it is the right thing to do given the circumstances.
Sometimes I can see things coming but ignore it due to good will.
Paying full maintenance in cash for years only to find the ex has informed the CSA that they did not receive a penny is a prime example.

My view is not blinkered...in fact, it is quite enlightened..whilst I am mostly tolerant, accepting and empathic, I cannot abide wasting one single moment of my valuable time on this earth pandering to total twats in particular the kind of twats who demand I spend an inordinate amount of time trying to understand them...why can't they understand me and p1ss off being psychic vampires already!

I agree with you about disliking those who say they don't suffer fools gladly..yeah right to them...and of course the majority who express that sentiment are totally thick and just repeating some idiom they think sounds equally impressively threatening and intelligent..shove it up your ar$es you spares!

I don't call a spade a spade..I know the difference between a spade and a shovel...I don't tell it as it is either..I'm the quintessential diplomat.

I over think things far to much, I should just take things as they are.....And I cannot suffer fools for too long. And by that I don't mean less intelligent people, I mean blinkered people who refuse to look around them to see if there is another answer to their question/problem..
