Confessional Thursday

It's Confessional Thursday!


I confess...

__________


...I'm the world's biggest pushover.

Seriously, I don't like calling the shots when it comes to making decisions.

It makes me uncomfortable.

__________


...to go along with being a pushover - I don't like confrontation.

Years ago I used to work at a coffee shop and there were more times than I'd like to admit that I'd take blame if the order was wrong just so I wouldn't have to tell a fellow employee they had mixed up the orders.

I never wanted to hurt their feelings.

I realized that they were essentially wasting product, but I just couldn't bring myself to tell them they were wrong, so I'd act all ditzy and take one for the team.

I still do this on occasion in certain circumstances...it's something I need to work on.  Seriously, I'd rather act ditzy than be honest - what?!  It's a problem.  Given, I realize I'm not always right and I know that.  I just never want anyone to think I'm intentionally being bossy or mean...or attempting to take charge.  Even though I know that it's better to say something than not.

__________


...on the flip side, I'm loud - like I should have my ears checked loud - and some people would probably call my obnoxious, but at least I know it!  LOL!

I just get waaaaay too excited when talking to people.

  I'm kind of like Buddy the Elf...all the time.

__________


...my kids have been playing alone in the other room for the last 45 minutes...

__________

...I found a tiny little Hershey's chocolate and an old Caramel-filled Cadbury Egg in the bottom of my purse yesterday and I secretly ate both of them.

It was awesome.

__________


...I don't like any kind of tomato-based sauce.  So I don't like sauce on my pizza, I don't care for spaghetti or lasagna...and I'm not a fan of salsa.  I know, I'm weird.  Although, I have made huge strides and am finally opening up to little pieces of tomatoes in my guac and salads.

Baby steps...baby steps...

Bam!  Confessions done!  Whew.  I can breathe again!

I'm linking up with the amazing Jessica over at The Newly.

  1. I've always hated tomatoes and, for a while, I wouldn't eat tomato sauce (although I've always eaten ketchup). I eat it now though. I was a big weirdo as a kid - I also didn't like cheese, so I ate my pizza after scraping off both the cheese and sauce, lol.
