Today, I thought I’d do a fun little interactive post. I’m going to get you to tell me your deepest darkest secrets. Just kidding!
However, I am going to ask you to confess something to me. It’s completely anonymous, so I’ll never know who you are, and neither will anyone else.
Go on, tell me about that embarrassing moment you had all those years ago, tell me something you’ve never told anyone. Just don’t tell me you’re a murderer, please, because I’ll never sleep again!
To kick things off, here are a few confessions of my own:
- I never learned how to swim.
- A couple of years ago, I accidentally smashed the screen of my Samsung Galaxy S3 and then dropped it again and then it completely stopped working. My parents then gave me a brick phone (remember those) and I accidentally smashed that when I was closing the car doors. Yep, don’t trust me with your phone.
- In my first ever interview a couple of years ago, I was asked what skill I lacked. I said I lacked leadership. The interviewer was so lovely and gave me another chance; he elaborated, saying yes, actually that is a good question (the intern had asked it), and he asked me again. I flippin said leadership again. Yes, I told my potential-could-have-been-boss that I lacked leadership. Twice.
Embarrassing, right? But I just think it’s so important not to take yourself too seriously sometimes. I mean, okay, I messed up my interview, but it wasn’t the end of the world! You just learn from your mistakes and move on. I told everyone I knew and we all had a good laugh about it. What can I say, I’m hilarious! (I’m joking, I promise I’m not vain!)
Now it’s your turn:
Let’s have some fun with this. I can’t wait to read your confessions!
