stubborn? who me?
Battle of the wills. My mom and I had several of these growing up. Some call it stubborness, I call it determination. =) Ah, who am I kidding, I'm stubborn. I know it. I know this links in to my personality type somehow, but one of the things I'm realizing about myself is that once I set my mind on something, that's the way it is, and I can't/won't change it. I don't think that I am purposefully being stubborn, (most of the time=) it just doesn't occur to me that I may be okay with changing my mind. When someone makes a suggestion that would incur a change to my mind, I immediately turn it down. Why? Because that's not what I want and I've already made up my mind. Sometimes I think I choose to stick to something for the sake of sticking to it rather than b/c it's what I want. Choosing to stick to something I want is not bad, I just need to remember that it's okay to consider other options.
