I never thought of myself in conjunction with this word until a few months ago — I’ve always been very quiet and shy so “aggressive” just didn’t really make sense, but I can definitely see it now. ⠀ ⠀ I think it really comes out in my actions. My family always cringes whenever I shut my laptop because they refer to it as “slamming”. 😭 ⠀ ⠀ My coworkers don’t really ask me to de-bead things anymore because I get impatient and just start ripping beads off. 🤷♀️ ⠀ ⠀ Glass objects are never safe and my car brakes are constantly being tested. 🤦♀️⠀ ⠀ There are also times at gatherings when I feel awkward so I try to joke with people and I’m actually just roasting them. 😩⠀ ⠀ Or I think I can get in the middle of fights and break them up... 🙃⠀ ⠀ If I were to be a Disney character I would be Hercules when he was skinny and just breaking everything. 😅 ⠀ ⠀ This is something I’ve ALWAYS been self conscious about. I’ve always felt too bulky and clumsy and awkward. ⠀ ⠀ Growing up as a gymnast I just wanted to be graceful and light and feminine. ⠀ ⠀ I tried to manipulate my body so I’d be skinnier and that didn’t work. ⠀ ⠀ I tried to talk and act different ways but since they weren’t natural it just came out even more awkward — definitely didn’t work. ⠀ ⠀ I literally even bought books on how to be more elegant and those didn’t work either. ⠀ ⠀ After trying all these different things I’ve come to the conclusion that maybe I’m just a little bit aggressive, and that’s ok. I just need to find what that extra strength can be used for. ⠀ ⠀ Maybe it’s just my inner super power trying to break free and I keep suppressing it by trying to change myself. ⠀ ⠀ What do you think about this? What’s an insecurity that you can that could potentially be your super power? Please DM me or share in the comments below!
