Following through.

Dear Self,

One of my pet hates is when someone promises to do something and then doesn’t follow through.

It makes complete sense that this is what I tend to do when I am behaving at my worst.

When I was in year 8 I had a teacher ask us all to write down the worst qualities of someone we really didn’t like.

We had a great time writing a character assassinating list of bad qualities.

They then told us that the things that annoyed us in others were often so annoying because they were reflective of our own bad habits. They invited us to look at the list as a list of all the things we don’t like about ourselves.

A very valuable and confronting lesson at 14.

A lesson that is still going strong many years later.
