Are your quirky habits a problem?
Give me MORE of your Quirky habits, for they are YOUR unique traits that only you possess. They’re your involuntary human signature.
I would never want you to be the same as everybody else. There is only ONE of you, and you’re perfect just as you are.
I often hear-
“He has a habit of doing this….he has a habit of doing that”
Unless it’s interfering with his life in some major way, does it really matter?
Personally, I love quirky habits-
Do you twirl your hair when nerves succumb you?
Are you blessed with an outrageous laugh?
-How I love hearing someone laugh
Or do you sing in the shower purely to irritate your other house mates?
-It always puts a smile on my face when my son does this.
I’ve been trying to pinpoint my own habits, however somehow, I have less awareness of these, than of the antics of others.
I have been told I walk a little knock kneed or pigeon toed-is this a habit, or just a bio-mechanical issue?
What then, is a habit exactly?
According to the Dictionary.com APP, a habit is the following-
‘An acquired behaviour pattern regularly followed until it has become almost involuntary’
So I guess pigeon toed ‘itis’ is not a habit then, as it has not been acquired over time-rather, I was born with it.
However this does not explain the quirky little habits families have as a whole. Sometimes, a few members of a family all have the same habit. If it runs in the family, this would suggest it hasn’t been acquired either!
An example? They all hold their head on a slight angle when they talk, or they all talk over the top of each other with enormous excitement, or they all have tendencies to adopt unhealthy social habits.
Are these habits acquired?-Maybe, maybe not.
All the same, it’s absolutely fascinating, don’t you think? Analysing the antics that make each individual unique?
Some habits go largely unnoticed, and others fully define a person.
So unless your habits are harmful in some way, keep yours alive and well and own that quirkiness with confidence and pride!
Get into the habit of owning your habits!!
