The Good, Bad, and Ugly

I've seen bloggers write about this topic in the past, and I've always wanted to join in, so here I am. It's no secret that we all have our own little quirky personality traits. Some good, some bad, and some just downright ugly. Normally we don't boast about the last two but not today. Today I share a little bit of myself with my readers, some bits that I'm not particularly proud of, but they're still part of me.
 
The Good
I usually put anyone and everyone's needs before my own. Oh you aren't done with your work? Neither am I, but let me help you finish. I guess you could say I'm a chronic helper... maybe that's why I chose to be a nurse, because I just can't get enough of helping people.
 
I can have fun doing practically anything. I love to laugh and be silly, whether it's jamming out in the car with my BFF or doing silly impersonations/impressions with my coworkers, I love to laugh and make people laugh.
 
The Bad
I'm sore loser. Seriously, even if it's friendly card game or dirty santa during the holidays. I like to win, I like to get what I want. I'm always the banker when we play Monopoly, always the scorekeeper when I play Zonk with my family. It doesn't matter the game, it doesn't matter the stakes, if I don't win you can bet your sweet hiney I'm going to pout about it.
 
I don't have a filter. There's been plenty of times when I've put my foot straigh into my pie hole, and worse, not even realized it. It's common for me to say something offensive and not realize it until later, or when it's pointed out to me.
 
The Ugly
It's my way or the high way. I was reading up on my sun sign one day (I'm an Aries) and I came across something that said, "...they aren't mean spirited, they just truly believe that they can do everything better than anyone else." As I sat there reading about myself, I couldn't help but nod my head in agreement, and imagine that my high school volleyball coach would be doing the same thing... she was always telling me that I wasn't the coach, and to stop "helping people" when they weren't asking for it.
 
I have a short fuse. Like a really short one. As in I blew up at Derek the other night over an argument about a traffic light. A traffic light. I get so angry so fast and I hear myself saying these terrible ugly things to people. Even though I can hear myself, I can't stop it. It just keeps coming out until there's no more left. Literal word vomit. I guess my saving grace is that I realize what I'm doing and I'm usually pretty quick to apologize. 
What are your good, bad, and uglies?

games, especially with the family, are a big deal. There are bragging rights at stake!

I have the short fuse thing too but I am quick to apologize. I blame it on my Latin side! Passionate but fiery:)

Caitlin said...

I am the exact same way with all of these. I hate losing and I do believe I can most things faster and better than everyone. Oops. We all have our flaws, right? ;)

Britt said...

I am EXTREMELY competitive and I want to win EVERYTHING I play. If I think I won't win, I won't even play. Pretty terrible and limiting, but it is what it is, I guess.

I've actually gotten into MAJOR fights with my ex-boyfriend over a game of Settlers of Catan. I'm talking yelling match, followed by bathroom door slams and our poor friends sitting there in the most awkward silence. So yeah, I feel that competitive streak.

I love this post, I may just "borrow" it... I'm a sore lower too, always have been. When I was a child I'd get into a major sulk if my dad started beating me at scrabble or monopoly, as soon as it was obvious I was losing I'd declare the game stupid, refuse to play and storm off!

Cotton and Boots said...

I swear you've just described who I am with your three things. I am the exact same way.

Becky M said...

I love monopoly - and I hate to lose too!

And with this list, we are solidified soul mates.

As if we weren't before.

Amber Thomas said...

WAIT. ARE WE LONG LOST TWINS? Because I'm the queen of foot in mouth. Sometimes we joke that peanut butter and toe-jam sandwiches are my favorite because I have it as such a skill...

Also, helping others. Oh my. I'm no good at drawing boundaries so I'll help someone else before I'm done. That's great for them, but for me it can cause a time crunch later in the game.

AND I'M AN ARIES.

Oh GUUUUURL... I tend to be filterless myself. haha

Corie said...

I rarely ever have a filter and swear like a sailor. Drives my husband crazy haha

Jessa Olson said...

I love this!! I'm the same way in helping. I just want to help everyone!!
