It’s outrageous!

I’ve discovered a character flaw in myself. I’m not perfect after all. Surprising, I know. What is this flaw, you ask?

I don’t like it when I don’t get my own way.

How can I deal with this? I see three options.

Option 1Ā 
Always make sure I get my own way. Sadly, I’m not sure how to make this happen. I’ve been trying all my life and it’s not working.

Option 2
Never get my own way so I eventually get used to it. Nope. That sucks.

Option 3
When I don’t get my own way give myself a treat like my favourite chocolate or a trip to the op-shop as compensation. This could very well work. I will try it next time.

  1. When you can’t change something, change your attitude, goes the cliche šŸ™‚

    #1 and #2 are extremes. And extremes suck extremely.
    #3 and the ability to judge what is not #1 and #2 is a good skill which I am sure you have šŸ™‚

    1. Some things are worth fighting for though, don’t you think? If the first anti-slave campaigners gave up with the first road-block they came to slavery might still be acceptable today.

  2. Sometimes I manage to convince myself that whatever happened was actually what I wanted the whole time.

    Other times, I punch a pillow.
