Introspection central! Fair warning 🙂
My Worst Habit
Others can probably see our own worst habits easier than we can. Or maybe we just like to hide our worst things from ourselves because that way we don’t have to think about changing them.
Either way, like most problems (if you can call it that) I have, it always stems from being tired. I do not cope with tiredness. At all. I used to be fine, or at least not notice it, but then I got Glandular Fever in 2008. My health really hasn’t been the same since. In 2009 I got a car and then I was also driving my husband to and from his totally irregular (and from what we could understand, illegal due to not enough time between shifts) hours job, as well as working full time and studying part time.
Nope. Ever since then, I have to keep a good sleeping pattern to make sure I have a good sleep. I’ve written about myself and sleep many times on this blog! I just did a search for the word sleep on this blog and it is in tons of blog posts. So clearly it is very important to me.
Because when I don’t have sleep, not only is it easier for me to freak out, I’m not a nice person. And that is my worst habit. I snap at people. People who don’t deserve it. It’s like I expect people to mind read me when I’m tired so I don’t have to process my own thoughts. I try to be aware of this when I do it, but it’s not easy.
Do you have a worst habit? More importantly, do you know what the trigger is for your worst habit?

Yeah I don’t cope with lack of sleep either. And I’m also and introvert and ASD person, so I need a lot of alone time. But my worst habits revolve around food, especially cake. Big surprise. NOT. As for triggers, yes emotions do play a part. Sigh.
Yeah, I could stand to improve my relationship with food. It has improved a bit this year but I could do with more improvement!
I am not a very nice person if I don’t get enough sleep either! Sleep is SO important in so many ways. I do not know how I survived the baby days! 😉
I don’t know how anyone survives them!
I turn into a mega bitch if I get even less sleep than I do normally. I have a bad habit of snapping at people before hearing what they say. It’s lead to some embarrassing moments!
Haha yep, brain goes “NOPE, not listening, responding!”
They say sleep deprivation is a form of torture, so I don’t think anyone is good on no sleep!
Good point 🙂
Sometimes we are the last to notice these things aren’t we? I know that if I am over-tired I become cranky and wonder why? Derr.
It’s a catch 22 – we can’t notice we’re tired because we’re too tired to notice 🙂
The good thing is, you can control this and manage it. And you are aware of it! I need to get on top of my sleep – as I get older I’m finding it more difficult to manage my ongoing sleep deficit.
Yep – though sometimes it’s giving up much needed couple or TV brain cell killing time in exchange for sleep.
My sleeping habits are all over the place at the moment and here I am at 1:30 am blog reading.
I get you on the whole wanting people to be mind readers and know how tired you are. Perhaps we need tshirts made up?!
“Please mind read: occupant has had no sleep” or something?
