Day 17 #NHBPM – My Strengths and Weaknesses List


Today we had a choice for our post to list our strengths and weaknesses or make a playlist.  Well, if you read my blog, you will see that I have done the playlist before, so I figured I will do something new..and list my strengths and weaknesses.

Strengths:

My first strength is compassion.  It used to be a weakness but lately, I have had so much of it.  It wasn’t until I had my worst flare that I started to understand my disease.  I never truly understood it before so my compassion towards others wasn’t as strong.  Now that I have had a healthy dose of reality, I feel for everyone.  It has been my driving force behind this blog.

Determination.  When I put my mind to something, I go for it.  This blog is proof of it.  I wanted to really start to help people.  I first started with video but didn’t like it.  Instead of just stopping I decided to try writing.  I tried 2 other sites previously but didn’t like how the blog was coming out.  I could have given up again.  Instead, I kept looking for a good website to use and here I am.

Willing to Learn.  I am like a sponge.  I try to absorb as much information as I can about a subject.  In this past year alone I have learned more about my disease and treatments then I knew about it all my life.

 

Weaknesses:

Stubborn.  My wife will agree with this one.  I am a very stubborn person and sometimes this will stop me from learning things.  If I think I am right or know something, sometime it takes a while to convince me otherwise.  I am trying real hard lately not to be as stubborn.  I think it is working as it has caused me to be more empathetic towards others.

Ignorance.  I say this because for many years I kind of chose to be ignorant about my disease.  I didn’t choose to learn more over time and never chose to learn about new treatments.  Of course, this is changing also and I have decided to open my eyes more.

Lack of concentration.  This I blame on the CD because…….wait…what I was I just thinking… :)  Just kidding.  I say this one because sometimes I have a really good idea and try to come through on making it happen.  But then I lose sight of it and just stop focusing on it.

 

Well, I am sure there are more of both strengths and weaknesses.  I am curious if anyone notices something in me they would say is a strength of weakness.  Let me know.  I want to improve myself and would love any feedback.
