our faults

The 'online world' can sometimes be very deceiving. We as humans can be deceiving in general. Through the internet we can be a kind, sweet, smart, pretty, creative person. We can look perfect. It's easy to hide our faults through the online world.

When I write I love creating my characters. I love making up their interests, their family, their talents, and their faults. To me, a person is not a person without faults. They must have some flaws that they are striving to fix. No, I'm not saying one should go around bragging on their imperfections -- but their imperfections should be known. They should not be hidden.

I have problems. I have flaws. I get frustrated easily. I'm a bad speller (I have to look up words on google all the time). I don't always think before I speak, I can sometimes be a smart-aleck. I eat too much sometimes. I get bored of doing "normal" good things. I say I'll do something, but I don't always do it. I can look nice on the outside, but the inside is what really counts.

Those are some of my (many) imperfections. I'm not proud of them, but I'm working on them. I'm tired of hearing about a person's hobbies, which are basically talents. What are some of your flaws?

ps: my sister accidentally left our camera at a party ... hopefully we'll get it back, but for now I'm using all my "leftover" pictures. enjoy. :) 


  1. I don't have flaws, I have quirks... :P lol

    Flaws would be getting impatient... or talking too much... or getting worked up over nothing... etc. :P

  2. Flaws? Me? *innocent brown puppy eyes*.

    Oh, my flaws could be a post in themselves. Actually, that's a good idea. But some of them are hypocrisy, dishonesty, and mopy-ness, to name a few.

  3. Yes...I'm pretty good at putting on a mask. I'm not the one who blows up when angry -- I'm the kind that lets it sit inside and boil. Occasionally I forget to hide my "fault" and it spills over...

  4. So true! It's so easy to simply 'leave out' the bad stuff about ourselves when blogging. Great post! :) An imperfection of mine is maybe that I over-analyze things too much and procrastinate.

  5. I get mad at my siblings, I don't keep my room clean, I fail my tests, I want everything for myself, etc, etc.

    Thanks for posting this, Kenny!!

  6. This is *so* true. It can be so easy to seem like the perfect gal whose life is just perfect- pretending like myself, life, family, surroundings are all completely perfect. But they aren't and it's easy to take advantage of people who don't know better.

    Thanks so much for the reminder, Kendra,



thanks for sharing your thoughts -- comments make my day!
