What are you "too"?

“Great Question” (15points)

I was engaging in some negative self-talk this morning and realized I was beating myself for being “too” needy or “too” vulnerable. What, if anything, physical or emotional do you think you are excessive in?

I’m too worried about every little thing. I’m too critical of myself when it comes to how I interact with other people.

Impatient….

Next question…

I’m too often too sedentary,

@Pachyderm_In_The_Room I’m picturing an elephant in a “too-too.”

zenvelo's avatar

I’m too passive. I don’t take strong stands in my personal life. It’s been something I’ve worked on in the last 8 years.

marinelife's avatar

I am too anxious.

I was always told as a child that I was too sensitive, but I don’t think so. I think all those people were too hurtful.

I can be a bit “too” critical of those that seem not very intelligent.
Being a fast brained, articulate and well informed type sometimes I can be a bit inwardly snobby around those that seem to lack strong self expression, logic, and have no intellectual curiosity.
It’s a work in progress.

I’m too much of a data taker.

Too naive. I have this belief that no one wakes up in the morning and says “let’s be an ass hole today.”
People say things to me sarcastically and I think they’re serious. I am always surprised by intentional meanness.
Because of this I am often misunderstood. I am pretty blunt sometimes but my intent is never to hurt. People who know me just laugh it off if my words come out in a less than tactful way. People who don’t know me get offended. I’m getting better but sometimes it’s just a blind spot for me.

tom_g's avatar

too f*cking pathetic. I make me sick. And saying that makes me even more disgusted with myself.

ETpro's avatar

Too… What’s the word for procrastinatory? Oh never mind… I’ll get around to looking it up pretty soon.

ucme's avatar

…sexy for my shirts, so sexy it hurts.

janbb's avatar

@ucme Must be hard to be you! :-)

ucme's avatar

@janbb, Nah, i’m easy-going, easy on the eye & easily pleased…hope that eases your mind ;-}

janbb's avatar

@ucme I know: I just like messin’ withcha.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Too cranky, too anxious, too moody, and currently… too hungry.

ucme's avatar

As do I, “messing withcha”...librarians do it in silence.

KNOWITALL's avatar

Stubborn, impatient, tend to be judgemental more than I like. I’m working on myself though.

ragingloli's avatar

A God.

syz's avatar

Controlling
I want things done the “right” way, which often means “my way”

Fat
I need to be a slightly less big dude.

bookish1's avatar

Too hesitant to make decisions, too pessimistic, too disinclined to believe others’ praise. (Always a work in progress.)

tups's avatar

Too worried, too sensitive, too messy, too lazy.

Espiritus_Corvus's avatar

I’m too much like Judy ^^ around people.

Pachy's avatar

@janbb, TOOTALLY!

Hawaii_Jake's avatar

I’m too fabulous and too ambitious.

poisonedantidote's avatar

Too arrogant, my way is the best way, my opinion is the best opinion.

Qipaogirl's avatar

Too frightened… It gets in the way sometimes. Staying put too long and not taking chances. Also, too much of a procrastinator! Wow, I’m living life with my feet nailed to the floor!

@Janbb being needy and vulnerable I think are just ways of saying that you would rather not be stomped upon and treated harshly. It’s not you… It’s the world which sometimes is rather harsh.

Apparently the Swedes have an expression (which I can’t vernacularize as my father used to do of his father, so I won’t even try):

Too soon old; too late smart.

EDIT: That, and too overweight (though I’m told I carry it well).

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

@CWOTUS Nobody likes snuggling with a stick, anyway. My husband is 30–35 pounds heavier than when we met. I like it. He was a ripped Adonis then, but he’s my beloved teddybear snugglebuns now. Hot.

YARNLADY's avatar

Too nice.

laineybug's avatar

Too sensitive, too loud, and too little.

Too sensitive.

hearkat's avatar

I’m too good at procrastination!

Strauss's avatar

Too sensitive, too generous.

janbb's avatar

Too sad.

downtide's avatar

Too sensitive, too concerned about what other people think of me.

ucme's avatar

…too shy, shy, hush-hush, eye to eye.

KNOWITALL's avatar

@janbb Awwww, took me off guard again, honey. :) PM if you want.

JLeslie's avatar

Too much ruminating over things in the past. Too dissappointed and hurt when people are extremely greedy and lack integrity. Too quick to temper lately. Too stressed.

rojo's avatar

too laid back about everything.

flutherother's avatar

Too unassuming and too old.

Blueroses's avatar

I think the formative years when you’re young and around people who make stupidity cool can effect you forever. For years I was hindered by fear of being called “brain”, “nerd”, “weird” to the point where social interaction was a chore to be avoided.

Through good friends (and therapy) I’ve overcome my paranoia mostly and it’s freedom in the nuthouse now!

Earthgirl's avatar

Too sensitive, too fearful, too proud
Oh and I almost forgot, too self-critical….I could probably come up with 20 more things, just give me a minute

dabbler's avatar

Too trusting. I like assuming the other person is being honest and harbors no malice, and I miss signs that this is not the case.

Sunny2's avatar

Lately I’ve realized that it isn’t just procrastinating, I’m too lazy!

Plucky's avatar

I am too:

Slow
Socially awkward
Empathetic
Sensitive
Generous
Quiet/shy
Perceptive/Intuitive
Routine
Worried about failure
Hard on myself
Tired lately

Earthgirl's avatar

@ucme Lol, I know the song, but really, do you expect us to believe that?

Blueroses's avatar

@Earthgirl Levity aside if that can be done with an Ucme post, Do you know how many people think of themselves as “shy” whom others see as “outgoing”?

Earthgirl's avatar

@Blueroses No, I don’t. Do you??? I myself am not good at faking it, but online it is so much easier to fake!

woodcutter's avatar

quiet

Earthgirl's avatar

@woodcutter WHAT WAS THAT?? Speak up, I can’t hear you! I got that a lot in grade school

tinyfaery's avatar

Too bee, or knot too bee…that iz the kweshtion.

Sometimes thin skinned, sometimes hard headed. But usually just about perfect ;-)
