Are there parts of your life that you find distracting?

  • For awhile, having had gone through a break up with my ex, and losing out on a friendship was distracting me from progressing in terms of my goals and focusing on priorities. Now, between potentially losing out on another friendship and having dealt with work drama over and over again at this job (not the gym) this doesn’t necessarily distract me unless I am in the environment, but it does annoy me quite a bit. Outside of those things, I don’t really have many parts of my life that serve as distractions currently.

Do you find any part(s) of your life distracting, now or in the past?

Do you ever break the rules?

  • I am not the type of person who will go out of my way to break rules, and I always usually try my best to follow them due to being overly cautious. Although, yes, I have broken rules, and suffered consequences for doing so & sometimes I have been able to get away with action without having someone find out — but it left guilt on my heart & that can be worse off than the consequences. I prefer to not have to break the rules,however I do believe “some rules are meant to be broken” — especially if the rule(s) don’t align with your values/beliefs, or change your character negatively. Sometimes we have to go against our belief system and sway from our values but many times those set the standards for what we believe in and how we go about doing things in our lives. For example, our moral belief might be to not kill someone but when defending ourselves, it could mean life or death & sometimes killing the other person is the only option if we want to survive.

Do you have spiritual beliefs that help guide you?

  • I do have spiritual beliefs, but I lack using them to guide me unless I run into trouble or something bad happens.

What are your pet peeves?

  • I have a few pet peeves that I shall list:
  1. when people chew gum loudly/obnoxiously
  2. when people speak with food in their mouth
  3. when people don’t use their turn signals
  4. when people are telling you something & you are trying to make sense of the story but they continue to change it
  5. when someone interrupts my karaoke moment to a song I like it
  6. when someone leaves either urine or water on the toilet seat without cleaning it up & you end up sitting on it — so gross. 
  7. Having to use public restrooms ( I don’t using them because you don’t get any privacy)
  8. when people talk to myself or others in a condescending manner
  9. when people ride my bumper very closely 
  10. when someone can’t repair/do something and refuse to let you try because they couldn’t do it. 
  11. When people text like this: GUrLz .. 
What are some of your pet peeves, leave the answer in the comments. Don’t forget to share, like, and follow the blog for more self discovery post.

Are you a good communicator?

  • At a very young age up until late high school, I struggled with my socialization skills & communicating with peers. Especially when it came to voicing my opinion, confrontations, debates, communicating my feelings/thoughts to others, etc. It wasn’t that I was anti-social or didn’t have any friends, I was very outgoing (still am) and had friends, but I was what most would probably consider “awkward”; Having a conversation with someone was harder due to my social anxiety — being a class clown all my life was my way of communicating and making friends, it seemed so much easier to find ways to make people laugh, than it was trying to talk to people in normal day to day conversations. I have many reasons as to why I feel as though I was struggling with this, mostly with other women vs men. I was a tomboy, so being one of the guys and hanging with my younger brother was my way of trying to fit in, vs hanging out with a bunch of girls from school. At a young age, I knew I was different, but it didn’t strike me as hard until I realized that maybe I had an attraction towards the same sex, and this just made communicating / socializing even harder at times. As I got older, I started to learn to open up to people more and had more conversation & my class clown acts weren’t as rapid, but after suffering from  losing friends, and having to move to different states/change schools, my communication skills started to once again dwindle because of my social anxiety from not knowing anyone. At the same time I had a hard time communicating with my own parent, my mom wasn’t the easiest lady talking to growing up (still has her moments now) because she is both stubborn and stuck in her ways and she believes what she says, goes — so I didn’t really have the confidence to speak up to her about certain matters until later in life. I’d say now, my communication skills aren’t perfect & I still have social anxiety, but I am better at voicing my opinion to peers, better at communicating my feelings within relationships and with close friends & I have gotten better at trying to voice my thoughts to my mom (even when she doesn’t seem to want to hear about it), regardless, I am glad this is something I have learned to excel at, and having taken a communication class in college, helped me to be able to talk in front of others with less fear. The hardest thing is keeping in touch with people — I am not good at doing that.
