I was pleasantly surprised to be tagged not once but twice for the Flawsome Award. My first nomination came from Ross of Man Vs Adulthood and the second from Chelsea and Brian of Two of a Mind. Thanks guys! 😁 Be sure you check out their answers.
Now I hadn’t heard of the Flawsome Award before being nominated, but love the concept. Also I love these kind of posts so am more than happy to be nominated.
About the Flawesome Award
Created by Sophia Ismaa, the objective of the Flawesome Award is to celebrate the flaws that make us awesome. To quote Sophia:
Our flaws make us human, our flaws tell us more about who we are, and in turn we turn those flaws into awesome strengths. In short, our flaws make us #flawesome.

1. Caring too much
I care too much about other people and their feelings, so much so that I will put their wants and needs, their happiness, above my own. This is something I have been working on and although I won’t stop caring and will tey to help others whereever I can, I am trying to focuss on self care and my own well being first.
Before being told by a former work colleague that I was too efficient and needed to slow down, I didn’t see it as a flaw. I think they were concerned I would burn out; I now make sure I dont take on too much at once but I still ensure I meet deadlines.
3. Over thinking / worrying
This is a big one for me and goes hand in hand with my anxiety disorder. I still have countless worries and my mind doesn’t stop over analysing situations but I put them into what my therapist calls “worry time”. A certain time of day you set aside to sort through any worries you had, of course any that can be easily dealt with, such as leaving your keys on the counter should be dealt with as soon as possible. The ones we set aside are hypothetical worries, usually things about the future that we have little or no control over. This method helps me to address what worries I’m having.
I look forward to reading your answers. 😊
