It’s been a little while since I did another tag or award blog. I was nominated this award a while back by the lovely blogger Laura and her amazing blog- Laura Spoonie Blogs. Laura writes great contents on her life with chronic illness and mental health struggles. She’s also a great artist! Please go and check out her blog!
The Flawsome Award, in which I was tagged for, is an award to celebrate our flaws and turn them into strength. So, here are the rules for this award:
- Link back to the original creator of the Flawsome Award: Sophia Ismaa
- Recognize the person who nominated you: Laura
- Display the award
- List three flaws and turn them into strength
- Nominate 10 people
*And, here are the flaws I’m sharing:
Anger as a form of caring:
This, you might not know about me but, I can be an angry person, sometimes. However, my anger is usually shown as a form of caring, rather than pure anger. I think, you might have heard that when parents are angry at their kids, it’s for the most part, because they care about them, rather than they hate them. So, my anger towards people or situations in my life work in similar ways. I’m angry because, I care about people or about a particular situation, too much. Although, anger may also have negative impact on the person, and too much anger could harm one’s emotional and even physical well being. On that note, I will try to be less of an angry person from now on.
Impatient with myself but very patient with others:
In a few of my previous blog posts, I might have mentioned briefly that I’m sometimes not a very nice and reasonable person to myself. At times, I can be very harsh on myself. I know, I’m not alone in this situation, there’re people out there that do the same. However, I’m normally nice and patient with others. For instance, I have the patience to wait for someone (i.e. for their arrival, or wait for a reply from them), even for days on end. Sometimes, I question where that patience is coming from and why I don’t use it on myself. I think, when I’m patient with people, I also have the tendency to believe them. I firmly believe that they’d show up or give me a reply, eventually. And, when that doesn’t happen, I do and will get disappointed. But, over the years, I’ve learned to not waste my time while waiting for others, and even when I don’t get a reply or people don’t show up, I will be less disappointed, and feeling hurt.
An introvert at heart but an extrovert in public:
If you know me and think of me as an extrovert, because I often appear happy, bubbly and positive. Or, because a part of my work as a public speaker. Then, you only know a part of me, not the entire me. In fact, I’m a very quite, and very private person. Nowadays, the older I get, the more I enjoy alone and private time, in my tiny apartment, rather than going to a party with 10+ people. I even find crowds uncomfortable and anxiety provoking. Also, when I meet someone for the very first time, I’m usually very quite as well, until I get to know them a bit better. You could say, I’m a very cautious person (cautious, but not rude). However, if I’m doing what I’m passionate about, especially my activism work, I can, and will, get talking!
So, here are the flaws I listed and how I also turned them into strength. Again, thank you Laura for nominating me. And, I nominate the following bloggers for this award:
My Blurred World
