Dec 17: You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch

What is your least favorite personal quality in others? Extra points for sharing your least favorite personal quality in yourself.

My least favorite personal quality is neutrality and passiveness. I always live by this quote, “If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.” I get that you’re not going to have an opinion on everything, but if it affects so many people or you personally, please stand for something. I don’t care if you are with me or against me, just pick a side. Also, sometimes, silence or neutrality can be deemed as being complicit. If something is controversial and is verging on on human rights violation and morality and you do not have an opinion, then you are on the side of the oppressor’s. And I guess, I’m really a passionate person. Like I always get in my feels so easily about stuff, so when someone is just fine with everything even when everyone is already speaking up, that annoys me. Grow some balls and say something. Do something.

My least favorite personal quality in myself.. I have two. I hate that I’m such a perfectionist and an overthinker. I always wish that I am not because it can be tiring. LOL. I always need to check stuff twice or thrice so sometimes it takes me longer to finish things. I also get frustrated very easily when I spot some flaw in my work. I admit that I am really hard on myself, and that is bad because I also have the same expectation in other people, which I really shouldn’t do. I think this goes hand in hand with overthinking as well, and I guess there are pros and cons about that. It’s bad because sometimes what you think doesn’t really happen and you just tire yourself out thinking off all these possibilities. But the good thing is, you tend to think about the overall picture and you map the next steps in your mind, depending on different possibilities.
