The Newest Challenges on the Plate

Hey All,

It’s been some time since I posted on here. Considering I use this blog as both my personal blog and the blog for social skills, I thought I’d update everyone on the things I’m currently going through, and what are likely to be the newest posts on this blog. Giving myself a place to write about things really helps me build into it, and usually helps me work through it. SO because I’m a narcissist (it’s my site haha), I’ll stop giving you some long winded response and just dive into it. At one point, I was working on a set of challenges with dealing with people. The Challenges from the first time around were as such.

  1. I was Shy as hell
  2. I was Unconfident
  3. I had no clue as to how to deal with Social Skills or social situations

Over the course of a few years, I managed to build up this sense of ability in this field, and now i’ve come full circle. I’m confident, I’m a good person, and I’m as good friend. After all, how else would I have built up the Social Write to what it is today? It’s not humongous, but it is at least a thing. However, recent things in my life pulled my interest away from the site, and I had to focus on a super unintentional spiraling downward for about half a year. In that time, some of my skills have gotten…rusty I think is the best way to put it.

As more direct way of addressing the issue is the following sentence.

I didn’t Lose my Fire or Social Ability, I just became an ASSHOLE

As of recent though, I made the change of working on listening much more keenly then I had before. As a result, I’ve had many people (those whom I’m close with of course) come up and point out things in my personality that should be addressed. With this in mind, I’ve sat down and compiled a list of new challenges that I need to face, these are things that have been addressed to me by other people, and some came from my own realizations. However, where the revelations have come from doesn’t matter, these are just things that I started doing, or never quite realized I had been doing throughout my life.

  1. Stop Poking People
  2. Stop Assuming
  3. Stop Being Inconsiderate with my Jokes
  4. Become more Socially Aware
  5. Become a better Wingman
  6. Process Information Better
  7. Don’t Automatically Jump to Myself in Conversation to Fill the Gaps
  8. Become more Dominant in my Life

This a heck of a list to accomplish, but I’ve already made a bit of progress, Poking people is fully purged from my personality (Thank Universe). It’s the first step, and I’ll give you a fully built post next week as to how I did it. SO the focus for the blog is going to shift from Social Skill Develop to Social Skill Tempering and focus. So for the first time in a while, keep your ear on the site, it’s gonna get epic again!

P.S. Also, I’m going to start using more adult language on the site. I swear, and don’t have an issue with it. I hope you guys won’t either.
