Self-awareness is a strong and admirable quality which far too few people have.

Particularly as those who are truly self-aware are often willing and able to admit when they're wrong, or if there is something about their personality which could, and probably should, be changed.

Truth be told, it doesn't take a great deal of self-awareness to realize and acknowledge your less than admirable traits.

More than likely, these are the things about ourselves that we've likely hoped we might change for a very long time.

Redditor sound-hub was eager to hear people share their least admirable qualities, leading them to ask:

"What's one bad trait about you?"

It's brave to admit the things about yourself that could be improved.

But it's important that this is how you feel, and not how others perceive you.

Only then should you even begin to think about changing any part of yourself.

There's a reason people are prompted to say "Too Much Information" or 'TMI" in modern slang.

Most commonly, people are urged to say so when they've learned a piece of information that they think they would have been better off not knowing.

Information which caused a visceral reaction of one sort or another, be it disgust, sadness, anger or heartbreak.

Some of us dread going to the doctor's office, but keeping up with your checkups is important. You wouldn't want to have a sudden health emergency would you?

Unrequited love is tough to get over.

There's nothing worse than having your heart set on a crush who gives you butterflies, but they just don't feel the same way and would rather be with other people.

And while it's hard to accept the fact that "it's not meant to be," the reality of a person not being right for you can manifest in a way that can provide a huge sense of relief.
