Flaw Number 1 – My Weight
I have always classed my weight as a flaw. I used to be really thin and eat super healthy. I don’t eat particularly unhealthy now, but I don’t seem to get away with eating whatever I can as much as I could when I was younger. I’ve always had to be careful with my weight but recent years I would only have to look at a packet of crisps and put a pound on. Whenever I look in the mirror I always saw somebody trapped inside a bigger body whose screaming from the inside to break out. I think curvy models are really inspiring and I really admire their confidence, but for me, that confidence is something I will never have. So recently I’ve been working really really really hard to lose all my weight I’m unhappy about. I will become the old Carly again because I don’t like this new one.
Don’t like something? Change it.
Flaw Number 2 – Shopping Too Much
I love shopping, feeling down? I shop to cheer myself up. Feeling happy? I shop to celebrate. Feeling mediocre? I shop because I can! I much prefer high street shopping compared to online as I really like to browse the rails and rummage through every single item I can get my eyes on. At times I think that I shop a little bit too much, I’m constantly buying shoes, bags, makeup, earrings, all those typical items I’m obsessed with! But maybe buying things isn’t necessarily a bad thing. If I want to buy something then why shouldn’t I? It’s what I work for, and as long as I’m happy with how I spend my money then it shouldn’t matter.
Shopping makes me happy.
Flaw Number 3 – I’m Impatient
I’ve always been impatient. I got it from my mum and my mum got it from my grandad. I can’t help it, but things get on my nerves quicker compared to other people. I suppose my impatience comes down to how passionate I am about certain things. If I can’t get or do something after a couple of tries it infuriates me and I get really annoyed. I really want to adapt and learn new things quickly and when I can’t my impatience gets the better of my mood. Unfortunately.
Impatience means I’m passionate
