The Flawsome Award

Flawsome Award

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.

My flaws

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.

2. Efficiency

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.

My nominations

I look forward to reading your answers. 😊

    Congrats on the award. Your ‘flaws’ are so relatable – I feel like I could have written this myself. Especially when it comes to worry and anxiety…whew!

    Thanks for your vulnerability and sharing with the world! 💙

    I can definitely relate to number 1 and number 3! I like the idea of having worry time, and might need to use that as some days, I feel like I have a lot in my head and can’t focus because of it. Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks for your comment Ruth. Worry time has definitely helped me, it gives me a certain time to focus on them and helps me get on with my day.

    Thank you for nominating me for this. I will get around to doing it at some point.. and I’ll let you know when I do.

    I relate to a lot of your flaws though.. caring too much being one of them.. and overthinking/worrying. I have GAD though, so that kind of goes hand in hand. Personally I don’t think you can count that as a flaw because it’s a mental illness.

    Thanks again for the nomination.. will let you know (most likely on Twitter) when I get around to doing this one. I haven’t forgotten though! ♥

      My doctor diagnosed me with GAD then as I started therapy they narrowed it down to two phobias. Social phobia and mild agoraphobia!

      Look forward to reading your answers. xx
