So today's challenge is to write about something I struggle with, and to be honest, I struggled with writing this because I'm, for the most part, a private person. I don't mind sharing things about writing, but I don't like to get too personal. So I had to come up with something I could share that didn't shove me outside my comfort zone.
What I settled on was being outspoken. I'm not saying this is necessarily a bad thing, but I struggle with knowing when to rein it in sometimes. I am extremely sarcastic, especially if I'm in a confrontational situation. I've always had a sharp tongue and words come easily to me when someone is attacking me or someone I care about verbally.
Being as outspoken as I am can be off-putting, and people automatically assume I'm unapproachable or, to be blunt, bitchy. So I do struggle with keeping it in check. There are times when I don't try because I need the aggressiveness, but knowing how much it can deter people, I attempt to keep that in mind when I'm having a conversation, especially if that person doesn't know me very well.
And there you have it. My confession for the day!
My thoughts, experiences, challenges, and goals. Right here. At least once a week or so. Oh, and opinions, too. Those will definitely come in. Join me!
