I declare this blog well and truly open!
Anything goes on a Thursday, but I’ll kick off with a blog post I read this week.
Let’s talk about feeling inadequate.
My favourite blog is The Frugal Girl. So, when Kristen suggested that if a blog makes you feel inadequate you should unsubscribe, it made me question whether her blog made me feel inadequate.
I concluded no, it doesn’t.
Then, being the overthinker that I am, I started to consider what blogs actually make me feel inadequate. I couldn’t think of one. Not even Grace’s – and if ever there was one that should – this is it! 😉
Then, being a major overthinker, I started considering the wider subject of “feelings of inadequacy”.
I don’t think I have them.
Sometimes I feel I could do better, and probably ought to. And I’m sure, if asked, others may suggest that I could try harder. But, for me, to feel inadequate, I believe would require comparison. My actions, I don’t compare to others. We all do things differently and to varying degrees and results.
That’s kind of when I had a light bulb moment.
I’m textbook type B personality. Relaxed, reflective and non-competitive. Maybe that’s why I don’t have feelings of inadequacy?
I don’t always cut the mustard with some of the things I do. These things tend not to be a priority to me. But it doesn’t matter that I sometimes miss the mark. Not to me anyway.
As I said this blog is well and truly open! Anything goes Guys! Feel free to drop links in and shamelessly (yes shamelessly – shame is so pointless! ask Dr Brene Brown) self-promote anything you like! Let’s have some fun!
