My Greatest Weakness

 This weeks Prompt:

 Ask someone who loves you what one of your weaknesses is.

This week I asked Misti to answer this question for me here is her response:

WELL THIS IS REALLY KINDA HARD IN A WAY TO ANSWER AND THE REASON BEING IS CAUSE MARGARET I FEEL TO ME IS ONE OF THE STRONGEST PERSON I HAVE EVER MET IN MY LIFE. SO WHEN I THINK OF A WEAKNESS OF HERS IT IS HARD TO COME UP WITH, BUT IF I HAD TO SAY SHE HAD A WEAKNESS IT WOULD BE THAT SHE CAN NEVER, EVER SAY NO TO ANYTHING OR ANYONE REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE SITUATION IS OR ABOUT. SHE NEVER SAYS NO TO ANYONE SO IN RETURN SHE IS ALWAYS OVERWHELMED AND DOING THINGS THAT SHE SHOULD NOT BE  DOING FOR SOMEBODY, MEANING IT IS ALWAYS MORE THAN SHE CAN HANDLE CAUSE SHE IS GOING THROUGH A LOT OF HER OWN THINGS IN LIFE. SHE TAKES ON WAY TO MUCH AND WILL DO IT REGARDLESS OF HOW SHE FEELS OR EXTREME MEASURES AND PAIN THAT SHE HAS TO GO THROUGH. SO IN THE END OF THIS ALL IT IS ONE OF HER WEAKNESSES IN LIFE IS NOT KNOWING HOW TO EVER SAY NO. IF U LOOK AT IT IN ANOTHER LIGHT IT CAN ALSO MEAN ONE OF HER GREATEST QUALITIES AND STRENGTHS AS WELL. MARGARET IS A VERY STRONG, INDEPENDENT WOMAN AND   IS NOT WEAK TO ME AT ALL, SO IF I HAD TO CHOSE THIS WOULD BE A VERY SMALL WEAKNESS OF HERS. I LOVE YA BUNNIE :0)

I want to first off thank Misti AKA Squirrel for writing this for me.  She is always willing to answer or write things for my blog when I ask her to.  Now to respond to what she said she is right.  I don’t know how to say no and I always go above and beyond what I should do for other people.  The funny thing about her writing this is when I went to my last doctors appointment my doctor said that I needed to learn to say no.  I know I should because the stress of it all is killing me but I don’t know how to.  My grandma is the same way that I am.  So I am going to blame it on her.

    That was great that she was honest. That is not a bad weakness to have, but you do need to learn how to say no sometimes.

  3. I used to have this same problem. Then, I wore myself out so much that I was out of commission for over a week due to exhaustion. I knew then that I had to fix the problem.

    I started off small. Saying no to things like, "Can you come here for a second?" (from my husband). I'd say, "No. Not right now; I'm busy. I can in a few minutes." Then I graduated to the big things. I decided I just needed to be honest with people–I'm too busy, I'm not feeling well, etc.

    Despite my fears, most people understood. And those who got mad or felt put out or whatever, well, they just proved to me that maybe they weren't worth going above and beyond for. Would they do the same thing they were asking of me for me? The answer was usually no, which meant I could quit feeling guilty because those people were takers.

    I had to figure out that I was just as worthy and important as everyone else before I realized that it was okay for me to put myself first.

    Ms. Margaret! You have to be nice to yourself too! Life gets too chaotic if you don't look out for yourself.

  5. blueviolet says:

    Yep, that not saying no can bite you in the butt!!! I'm ok with it if you're ok with it, but it's time for you to take care of you first! 🙂

  6. That's so hard…I used to be the same way, now I don't care. lol. 🙂
