One of our greatest strengths is also our greatest weakness, i’m fiercely independent, which comes with a list of wonderful & terrible attributes, and for starters, I don’t need to rely on other people to do anything for me.
- I can lead a group of people to success or simply get things done on our own.
Professionally, this is amazing! However, our independance gets me in a lot of unnecessary trouble occasionally, because I hate asking for help. I would much rather fail at a job alone than ask someone for help, but this has proven to be a horrible quality as a homeowner. The other week, our air conditioner started acting funny. I was hearing bizarre noises rattling around, & the air wasn’t cooling low enough for our likingâ€¦ No matter what temperature I set our temperature control to, the air would never reach that temperature, despite running all day. I knew our utility bill that month was going to be high, although I didn’t want to ask anyone for help, however my sibling & Mom would’ve helped me repair whatever was wrong with our air conditioner, although I was stubborn & didn’t want to divulge defeat. I tried doing some Heating, Ventilation, & A/C research on our own, but it left me even more confused. Instead, I bit the bullet & called the local Heating, Ventilation, & A/C business for an appointment. Thankfully, they were able to squeeze me in that day, & an Heating, Ventilation, & A/C serviceman came to repair our air conditioning. The serviceman said I just needed to upgrade our air filter, & the appointment could’ve been avoided if I’d just upgraded it myself. I hate that I had to spend our money that much currency because of how independent I am.
