    I Can Be

    Sometimes stubborn is a really good thing (like when you are right and everybody else is wrong - grinning!) But I do have a stubborn streak.  Ask my mother she will certainly tell you.  I think she might point to the time when I was maybe twelve and told her I was going to run...

    Ridiculously Stubborn

    I can be so stubborn with my husband that it is actually to my own detriment. I hate that about myself. If I feel that he is acting in any way negatively towards me, I will beat that 10 fold. Perhaps this is not only stubborness but pride getting in the way to. Whatever it is...

    something it will Not change. I am either stubborn or really strong headed when it comes about certain things! I will stick to my word and state what I think even if its not the nicest thing in the world. I will never be someone to be walked all over.

    Not With Everything,

    but people are always telling me how stubborn I am. I consider stubborness a good thing. Doesn't it mean that I'll stand my ground then? That I'm strong, and I know what I want and I can hold onto my own opinions and beliefs? So what if I'm stubborn! This is a good thing!

    so stubborn your only making life harder on yourself. Very true in some situations I refuse to make the first move or say sorry if I feel it's not my fault. In relationships, my stubbornness has pushed them away because my way is the right way only 😕
