Thing you are most ashamed of?

There are so many things I have done that I am embarrassed of--not that many rise to the level of shame, but there are definitely some.  Can't undo them, though, so maybe we better not talk about that after all.

How bout this?  What is the one thing you would change about yourself, that you are embarrassed about?  Not something you have done, but a character trait.  And what are you going to do about it, if anything?

Despite my half-Brit heritage, I am (surprisingly) lacking in shame. I feel life is too short to be perpetually ashamed of one's habits or mannerisms...if something truly bothers you, then just change it.

That said, I know that one of my character flaws is tardiness. I tend to be late for things. Not excessively late, but still late. The degree of tardiness depends upon the importance of the event. I tend to be the most late for parties or social events--in example, I arrive at my company holiday party so late that we miss the drinks hour prior to dinner.

I don't know why I do this--I've read many times that being late is a sign of selfishness but I don't feel that way at all. I try my best to hurry up and get ready so I can arrive at an event on time, but at the same time, I'm so OCD that I am simultaneously trying to tidy up/sort out things on my end (IE, I can't leave the beds unmade or the kitchen a mess before leaving for morning events, and I can't go to an evening function without first making sure my animals are okay for the night). If I don't take care of these personal things then my mind is elsewhere for the duration of the event or appointment. Then throw in the fact that I have a malfunctioning clock in my head (time always seems to go much more slowly than it really is) and yeah, that's the perfect recipe for tardiness. Shit, I was even born 3 weeks late! No joke.

As for fixing it, well...I try, but this is the best I can do :(

Ok-I'll go first. Random gossiping,especially when it's someone I don't like and I feel like Karma is taking its course.Example: a girl I don't like,who kinda made my life alittle bit miserable when competing my horse. Her husband is now jailed for fraud. It serves them both right for being so greedy. Trying not to gloat.

Heath, you have never failed anyone that you loved. It has been done to you so many times, I do not think you COULD do it. But I just saw these comments needed to be moderated and recognize the date, so I understand why you said it. Just know it is not true
