What are yours?

Just a few to mention for me are:

Words

A certain look I may get

A touch

Fear

Emotions (the giving into them)

Love (too easily, at times)

There's more, but just trying to pin down what causes one to become weak enough to hold back from the important things in our lives.

Oh yeah, I'm also weak to food, cigarettes and men with brown eyes and mustaches! LOL! (But not THAT weak!)

weak......hmmmm....still working on the "no" to please me and stop pleasing others...so much easier said than done.

And i have a weakness too for not wanting to hurt someone or there feelings, again this goes with the saying NO to please me instead of Yes
to please others.

I guess if i felt more valuable and more STRONG about my own well being and self these weaknesses would be easier to get past.

Its one day at a time for me.

(((thanks Jenni))))

Making others mold my personality: and role im suppose to play. Too afraid to change my role for fear of rejection and hatred.

Seeing the best in people always.

Never giving up on them that they can change and be the best they can.

Trusting people quickly simply coz I am an honest person who does not like to lie.

mmmmmmmmmmm and spoiling and pampering my adorable kitty whom I find it hard to tell her No. She sleeps beside me. Even when I leave her outside the bedroom she keeps meowing and I can't help but open the door for her and cuddle her up on my bed with her furry warm beautiful sexy body.

This is the only Positive codep trait I am so proud of and do NOT want to change.

Pets never hurt us intentionally. In fact they are out best friend!!!

What causes me to become weak? Excellent question, Jen. I have two biggies that if I keep in check all the other little ones (my weakness) it seems like I manage.

1. Have to eat right and exercise or I go down fast. (Just started back up on the treadmill last week after a 2 month absence) and already feeling the positive emotional effects.

2. Allowing my boundaries to be crossed. (This is new for me- but have been able to put two and two together and realized that when my boundaries have been crossed is when I became *weak*.

These are excellent examples! I think these are the things we need to address in our lives, in order to get past those "blockades" which stand in our way of moving forward.

Instead of taking detours and finding a way around, we need to find ways of taking down that blockade.

And I think one of the most common things that keep us from doing this is fear. For me, "fear" was my worst enemy, and held me back from so much.

So out of all of my weaknesses, fear was the first one I had to tackle, (and still do plenty of times). But...it gets easier to do, after so many times of doing it. It's actually becoming quite natural, now.

I guess I had to make fear my friend, in order to level it out. Yes, I'll acknowledge the fears I have, when I have them, but I won't ALLOW them to control me or my choices. THAT'S where I draw the line, and make it a boundry.
