My parents have always said to me ‘we know you better than you know yourself!’ I used to think how is that possible- no-one knows me like I do! But now I think I know what they mean. There are certain traits that I think the closest people to you see more than you recognize yourself. I’ve recently really tuned into me, come out of denial and accepted that I do have some little flaws! It’s empowering to accept everything about yourself (good traits and not so good traits ;))
In my case, I am known as ‘princess’ Lottie. As in, I don’t like it when things don’t go my way and I can become quite a little brat when they don’t. Until recently, I didn’t see this at all! My parents and boyfriend would tell me and I’d get in a grump, sulk and go crazy that they thought I was like that (Lottie- stomping her feet!) My boyfriend said to me a couple of months into our relationship ‘you don’t like it when things don’t go your way do you?’ I told him he was completely wrong and I don’t mind at all. ‘I’m really easy going LA LA LA’ And I genuinely believed I was!
