Ok so where not perfect. That is something that must be owned. When you know your flaws you can work on them to fix them. One can still be fabulous and a bit tainted. Life is going to lead to many cracks on the veneer of a person. Flaws are just proof that a life was lived. Know your truth.... and embrace them.

Redditor u/retailbro wanted to discuss just how self aware many of us are by asking.... [SERIOUS] What is the worst thing about you?

My procrastination. The_Moistest_Boi

I used to be the king of procrastination. I once had a ticket to pay online but I kept postponing until my 20 dollar fine became a 500 dollar one. I once kept postponing changing the oil in my car until I knocked my whole engine. But now I only crastinate, without the pro. Baby steps. GenSul559

Just Walk... 

I can't walk away during an argument or let things go until it's resolved. cue378

I always want to talk about the argument, but my GF goes completely silent, she needs time to cool off

It's hard, when i cool down i don't know anymore what i was going to say. u_creative_username

Desperate. 

Sometimes I'm too desperate for validation. depressedjoanna

Don't say that about yourself, I think you're great. TheRookCard

"I wonder what he meant...." 

I overthink every compliment and insult. mediocre_moment16

A psychologist walks to work every day. Every day he sees another psychologist pass him silently walking the other way.

After 20 years one day the other psychologist says "good morning" as he walks past.

The first psychologist spends the rest of the day pondering "I wonder what he meant...." TheDevilsAdvokaat

I'm far too clingy for my own good. LesbianSeaWitch

My girlfriend and I are both very clingy, I love her very much though, you have to have another clingy person that also matches your personality and what not, so I can see why this is a big problem. an602tsar

Feel like a moron every time. 

I have a tendency to interrupt people. Not because I'm not listening or think what I have to say is more important. I just get so pumped to share the random thought that popped into my head that all manners go out the window. But it definitely doesn't come across that way. Feel like a moron every time. foldedfrogs

Me. Me. Me.

At heart, I'm just a selfish prick. Once a person starts to need me or inconvenience me in any way, I start to check out.
I will always self-preserve. Noneverdid

Oh I can understand that completely but in the sense of obligations....

If someone obligates me into something, or I start to feel a sense of obligation or owing them something I dip the heck out. I can't handle it.

It's for my own self perseverance and it feels super selfish. The way I combat that selfish feeling is the realization that you are the only person that is going to be there for you... Forever.

So if you can't handle people needing you, and you dislike being inconvenienced, then you do you. You are your only number 1. Reddit

Just bleh...

I have very little ambition. Maraudentium

Our entire Gen X group was pegged as having no ambition. Unfortunately, the moniker stuck because few of us had any ambition to disprove it. notjewel

"whatever makes you happy" 

I blame myself for everything and I can't say no. I'm very much a "whatever makes you happy" type person even if it means I get hurt or taken advantage of. Then I blame myself for whatever happened to me in the taking advantage of process. Galactic_ink

Fury!!

I have a serious anger problem. GoliathBoneSnake

Same, though I'm the most calm and happy person you'd know most of the time. Yesterday my phone kept pausing music so I punched through a towel rail and wall in one move. Kirsi2019

Manipulation is designed to be stealthy. We hardly recognize it when it's happening to us because our abuser has forced it to appear under wraps.

But when we recognize it for what it really is, we really feel like we've been smacked across the face. There is no other descriptor for it. Usually we've trusted and loved those that manipulated us.

Just as new mothers encounter the sudden, influential developments of powerful hormone changes, protective instincts, and milk production, so new fathers undergo some key changes of their own.

Their socks become exclusively white, climbing higher up the calf than ever before. All their shorts sprout cargo pockets and clunky belt loop cell phone holders. They start to really lean in to their old records.

Cleaning up is hard enough when it's just clearing a month of dust bunnies. Can you imagine cleaning the debris left by murder, suicide and violence? I have a really great friend who used to do crime scene clean-up for a living. The pay is incredible; it starts at $55 an hour. But there is a much higher cost in mental well being. Death affects you in ways you don't always feel immediately. My friend has stories of nightmares, depression and pain after leaving scenes of horror. Why make all that money just to spend it on therapy? It takes a certain type of person.

***TRIGGER WARNING. CONTENTS ARE SENSITIVE ***

Redditor u/MemegodDave wanted to hear from the people who have the stomach to come in after crime and tragedy

to try to bring back some form of normalcy to the location by asking... People who make their living out of cleaning murder scenes, accidents and the like, what is the worst thing you have experienced in your career?

We all know the telltale signs that something is making us uncomfortable. Suddenly, we begin shaking, either in our hands or knees or toes. Then, usually, sweat starts pouring out of every part of our body, making it look like we just ran through a rainstorm underneath a waterfall. Finally, we lose our regular speech functions. Everything goes out of sync and our words don't match up to what's in our minds.

What's interesting is that what usually brings about these fits of uncomfortableness differs from person to person, as evidenced by the stories below.
