5 Random Things About Me

About Me

Today, I thought I would share some random things about myself. I thought this would be a fun post and since I haven’t done something like this in a long time I thought that it would be a fun way for you guys to get to know me a little better and for me to also get to know you guys a little better.
In order for me to get to know you guys a bit better I am hoping that you guys will leave some random facts about you as well- if you feel comfortable enough to share them there is not pressure to do so of course!
Anyway, here are five random things about me that you may or may not know. I have mentioned some of them before so a lot of you guys may already know a couple of these but I tried to also add some really random ones too that I don’t think I have talked about before on the blog.

I have a really bad temper


This one comes as a surprise to many people who don’t know me personally or in real life. But yes, I do have a pretty bad temper. If I see red and you happen to be the reason why you may want to stay away from me for a day or two… I have always had trouble with my temper and it got worse as a teenager. I think it stemmed from my inability to properly express myself due to my anxiety. I have always been someone who represses my feelings but what that often leads to is all your negative emotions boiling up until you snap- which is what I would do.
However, over the last few years with the help of alternative medications such as CBD oil I have been able to get a much better control over my emotions and I have also learnt to express myself in a more positive and healthy manner. Of course, I still get angry sometimes and snap at people but it’s way less often now and much less hurtful.

I used to have a blog before this one


Yup, it’s true you guys- I had a blog before lifesfinewhine but it wasn’t on WordPress. It’s honestly kind of hazy because I had no idea what I was doing but I started a blog on Bloglovin’ (I think I’m really not sure) and the energy just did not feel right to me for some reason and it just felt too complicated and forced. That’s why I ended up creating another blog on WordPress which was the best decision ever.
In retrospect I get that the other blog feeling off was probably just the universes way of pushing me in the right direction- towards WordPress of course. I’m very glad I ended up here because the WordPress community for the most part has been so kind, accepting and supportive and I’m very thankful for that.
For those of you guys who were on other platform or are currently on other blogging platforms as well apart from WordPress I’m curious. Do you prefer WordPress or the other platform and why?

I’m a pretty sensitive person


I’ve always been a sensitive person. I get my feelings hurt pretty easily and I do tend to be more emotional about stuff. The thing is I always saw this as a weakness and tried really hard to suppress my feelings because I did not want people to see me crying or acting emotional. That was obviously a really stupid idea because there’s nothing wrong with being emotional. If anything it’s a really good idea to express yourself and just let it out.
Over the last few years I have been trying really hard to be more expressive and to let people in because I do tend to be cold and shut people out. It’s definitely something I still need to work on but I think at the same time I am doing better than I was before because I have been open to more experiences and I have been working on expressing myself better.
Now if I feel something, negative or positive, I just let myself feel it. Yes, the negative stuff hurts a lot sometimes but I would rather process my feelings in a healthy way than have to repress them and have them all come out at random times.

I’m terrified of the dark/ghosts


I have always been scared of the dark and of anything paranormal. I’m not sure when all of this began because like even in my earliest memories I can remember being scared of the dark and having to sleep with some sort of light switched on.
I also don’t know why I’m so scared of the dark or paranormal stuff- watching The Sixth Sense when I was super young did not help the situation. Or any of the other horror movies I watched even though I knew they would come back to haunt me (no pun intended…). Now that I think of it I have seen so much stuff about ghosts, paranormal activity and bad things happening in the dark for someone who is terrified of all that stuff- why do we humans like to torture ourselves??
Anyway, back to the point- paranormal stuff scares the crap out of me and now I tend to just make sure I don’t watch anything with paranormal stuff in it. I also like having a nightlight switched on because I still can’t sleep in the dark.

I have Trypophobia


Trypophobia is an aversion to the sight of irregular patterns or clusters of small holes or bumps. It is not officially recognized as a mental disorder, but may be diagnosed as a specific phobia if excessive fear and distress occur. Source: Wikipedia.
I’m not scared of holes but they do disgust me. They disgust me a lot. When I look at holes I feel super uncomfortable, sometimes nauseous and sometimes it kind of makes me want to scratch my skin off. I don’t know why I feel this way but apparently it’s pretty common. A close friend of mine has it too and it’s just nice to know I’m not alone. I just thought I was weird but I guess there are lots of us weirdos out there lol!
