Today’s prompt is to pick my top three worst traits.
Ignoring my insecurities which you already know about, and taking a positive tack on this (because it’s been a rough week, obvs), here are my top three worst traits:
I care too much
I obsess over the details and work myself into nervous frenzies trying to be perfect at every turn, to avoid failure or trespass, and do the most excellent job I possibly could.
I try to please everybody
I’m an ESFJ! I will bend over backwards and forwards and any other direction to make someone else happy, even at the expense of my own comfort and desires.
I love everything
I will become weepingly sentimental over everything. I am so moved, so easily, and so frequently. I am a desperate romantic and bleeding heart.
I know these are like “job interview” faults. But sometimes an asset becomes a detriment in life, and we must remember to keep even our best intentions in check.

I'm always trying to please people as well. I will even put people's happiness in front of my own just to please them.
Dude, I'm a total ESFJ. I know what you mean.
I can identify with each of these — I am similarly afflicted.
