In my last post, I talked about how to stop comparing yourself to strangers on the internet. I talked about how social media can often make it appear as if everyone's life is perfect, and can remind you that your life isn't!
Like I said in my last post, social media is usually people's 'best bits'. They show you all of the things they've achieved, where they've been, what they've been up to and the things they're proud of. They don't usually tell you about the things they're bad at!
So I thought I'd share just 10 things I'm bad at, to hopefully make you feel better and to show that you can't do/have it all!
I’m late to everything. I just can't help it! It's definitely my worst habit and I really do try to be on time... but it just doesn't happen.
I cannot talk to babies. Children, absolutely fine, talk to them all day long, but babies... I just don't know what to do, what to say, how to speak. Most of my friends have babies and each and every one of them has made fun of me for it!
I have all of the best intentions when washing clothes... but I genuinely don't understand how anyone can put clothes in the washing machine, wash them, take them out, put them outside, bring them back inside, fold them and put them away in the same day. HOW?!
I cannot cut out chocolate. Or Pepsi Max.
I often look at what other people are doing/what they've achieved in their lives and compare myself to them. "They're married/engaged/have had children/have just landed their dream job/have travelled to all of these places/have the most amazing house/have the perfect life..." Even though I know I shouldn't!
I am terrible at replying to texts, emails, voicemails, messages... I either reply instantly or in 3-5 business days. Or in my head. Then get a little bit mad that you haven't replied back to me.
I sometimes fall asleep in my contact lenses. Yes, I know it's bad for you. Yes, I know it can be dangerous.
I cannot bake. Whether it's a recipe or a cake mix from a box, something always goes wrong. Once, I tried to make pancakes for Pancake Day and ended up with omelettes. No idea how.
I really need to exercise more. And when I say more, I mean at all. Because I don't. Unless running late counts as exercise!
I often add things to my to do lists just so that I can tick them off and feel like I've achieved something. Even if it’s ‘Wake up’. Big tick for me!
That felt so therapeutic to write all that out! I would definitely recommend writing a list of things you're bad at (and maybe also a list of things you're good at so you don't feel so terrible!) Feel free to share some things you're bad at in the comments below so I don't feel so alone in my 'unperfectness'.
