I'm not a good loser. I was never good at competitive sport, so when I lose something, anything really, it feels like everyone is judging me and, thinking how rubbish I am.
I am not good at socialising. I talk too fast, I stumble over my words and, I feel like no one really cares what I have to say. This then makes it really hard for me to be in social situations. The more I get to know someone, the easier it gets, but it doesn't really fully go away.
I am stubborn and, this can cause issues. I do like to get my own way, even if I know I am being unreasonable.
I am not good at maintaining friendships. I get caught up in my own life and, my need for solitude. This means that sometimes I forget that I need to reach out to others.
I don't take criticism well. I have this constant desire to do everything to the highest standard, so when something isn't quite right, it hits me harder than it would someone else. It feels like I'm an embarrassment and, that nobody will put their trust in me again.
