10 Things I Wish You Didn't Know About Me

It’s just going to be a put-it-all-out-there kind of month on the blog. Following the openness of recent postw, here are:

10 Things I Wish You Didn’t Know About Me

image

  1. I bite my nails…and throw them on the floor. (I know, I know. It’s gross. Old habits die hard.)
  2. I say I don’t care about how I look, but I really do.
  3. I mock people for caring about how they look, but often spend a solid 30 mins obsessing about my own appearance before leaving the house.
  4. My feet are extremely, embarrassingly ticklish.
  5. I sleep with my mouth open…and drool.
  6. My self-discipline is close to zero.
  7. I stress eat,
  8. and chew really loudly. (Ask Ben.)
  9. I don’t wear makeup mostly because I don’t want to and partly because I don’t know how.
  10. When I get out of my element I talk way more than I need to, and hate myself for days.
  11. (You’re right, the list said 10. I wish you didn’t know I don’t always follow the rules.) I wish you didn’t know I’m not perfect. I wish I could hide all my quirks and the downright nasty parts of myself, but I can’t. I can’t hide them, but Christ covers them. I don’t want to admit that I need a Savior, which is exactly why I do. And that’s something I actually don’t mind you knowing about me.

    “I don’t want to admit that I need a Savior, which is exactly why I do.” Perfect. I needed this, Victoria – thank you!

    I can seriously relate to 1-9. You’re not alone. We’re all imperfect creations made me a perfect creator. We’ll get there one day. Thanks for sharing your honesty through words. 🙂

      I’m glad you can relate, Sarah! It’s comforting to know I’m not alone! lol And, yes, Praise God that He makes perfect His creation!

    Not too long ago I suddenly realized that I haven’t hid my problems and quirks as well as I thought. It was quite a shocking revelation. Talk about feeling really insecure and exposed! But yet, I still have friends and family who love me and a God who knows me and sees me and has plans for me…in spite of myself.

    I think I understand grace better now.

    P.S.

    I don’t wear make-up either. 😉

      It is so refreshing to find that you’ve been much too hard on yourself 🙂

    I talk to much when I’m out of my element, too. Such quirkiness is endearing, they say. I’m glad to know the things you wish we didn’t know. I have a feeling most of us Jesus followers are of the quirky, imperfect kind.
