I would say I am emotionally strong, independent, confident and okay with making decisions, even though it has taken me a lot of years to get to this point.
This used to happen to me as a child and every now and again it still happens that when I’m under pressure I make decisions based on an unconscious level, which when I go away and think about wish I hadn’t. Back then it was because I wanted to please people.
When I’m not under pressure in normal circumstances, I’m completely in control of my thoughts and any decisions I go on to make. Under pressure my guard seems to drop and I find myself making decisions that I later go on to regret.
I also find that in a situation where I’m with other people who are more outspoken and confident than me, I am easily swayed by their opinions, rather than my own thoughts. It’s a good job that it doesn’t happen very often or I would really be in trouble.
It would be interesting to hear from other people who show similar character traits when they’re under pressure. I’d love you to get in touch.
