Bad Combinations

What is it about you that causes you the most trouble?

My combination is that I’m an opinionated, thin-skinned, loudmouth.

I get my feelings hurt all the time when if I just had the self control to hold my tongue there’d be no problem.

My anxiety issues make me not want to do things. Not doing things makes me extremely bored and apt to spend money online.

Grow a thicker skin, OP. The loud-mouth opinionated part is what makes people interesting.

I’m a know-it-all and critical.

I’m vain, greedy and very, very fat.

It’s a horrid combination and it is sabotaging my health and my confidence, to the extent that I often wonder why my friends bother with me.

Did you ever ask them, R4? I bet they see qualities in you that you discount.

I'm rich and generous with college frat boys.

R5, I know that people think I’m a good person. I’ve had friends sincerely tell me that I should be a therapist or a priest because people find it easy to talk to me. People think I’m funny and enjoy my company. I have lots of really good close friends. I come across as being confident. I’m a decent person and someone my friends can turn to when they are in trouble.

But for all that, when I see myself in the mirror and see what other people see, I don’t think I deserve their respect.

Therapy, hon. Lots of it. Why haven't you gone?

R8, I would think I deserved therapy if I actually looked at myself in the mirror and liked what I saw. I’m very fat and it means that I never look smartly dressed. I hate the clothes I wear. I’m going to a wedding in a few weeks, and have been asked to give a toast. I started worrying in February about how I would look and what I would wear. I still don’t know.

The only time I had therapy was to address my weigh issues, and it wasn’t much help.

In any case, I am not unhappy most of the time. I compartmentalise. I have a decent job and I know I am a good person. I know that people seek my advice and trust my judgment. I have lots of people who love me, and I know people see the good in me, even if I am not sure how. Things could be worse.

R9 I have three words for you. Ozempic, Wegovy, and Mounjaro.

I’m a misanthrope.

Angry young men driving loud, fast vehicles with a love for guns. I don't know any of them but it would be a nightmare if I did.

My brain thinks of silly shit to say in any situation, but I work in Trauma care.
