I can write a book on this one word – stubborn. In all of my life, I have never met someone who can be more stubborn than myself. Whether it’s about chores or making a change of some sort in my life, I seem to shield myself from things and people with a wall of stubbornness. I have to say that initial “no,” whether out loud or in my mind. But, luckily, I have learned to become more adaptable to change over the years – accepting the fact that I welcome self-reflection and self-improvement. Welcoming change was a big step for me to take, but nonetheless, I took it all on my own and am still working on my stubbornness as you read this.
I can’t tell whether it’s sheer laziness or just an aversion to change, but this stubbornness has held me back from all of the things I would love to do with my life. In the past couple of years I have been working on my health and appearance – dedicating myself to working out at the gym and wearing more appealing clothing as suited to my body. These are just two small steps to bettering myself.
What, if anything, do you find yourself being stubborn about? Perhaps you know someone like myself. I’d love to hear from you about it/or this person.
