What do you wish people just accepted about you?
Nothing. It isn’t other people’s job to accept me. I spent a lot of time and energy in my younger years (and even a bit in the not so distant past) worrying about what others think. I’ve surrounded myself with people that love and accept me for who I am and things that they don’t accept about me are likely things I need to work on. Like my borderline hoarding tendencies. My husband accepts this about me, but I don’t want to be resigned to accept this about myself. It is something I’m working on.
I used to want people to accept me as a smoker/vaper. But it turns out they did and the only person that was having trouble accepting that reality was me.
Over the past few months, I’ve felt more OK with who I am than I have ever. I’m not perfect, nor will I ever be. But quitting nicotine has kick started the motivation to change other things in my life.
Speaking of the my hoarder-esk traits, my husband and I were having trouble deciding what to eat tonight and we ended up looking in our deep freeze, which consequently, was in dire need of a defrost. An hour later, we had cleaned out the Fridge, fridge freezer and relocated all the food we wanted to keep frozen that was in the deep freeze to the fridge freezer. As a result, I know exactly what I’m making/eating for the next week as well as tonight. My next challenge might be 30 days no eating out. I’m liking these 30 day challenges as I find my tendency is to keep up with it after it is up if it is something I actually want to change about my life.
