    I am. and I am not ashamed of it at all.

    some people see being stubborn as a bad thing. I see being stubborn as a good thing. Well, it really all depends on how you look at it. and it depends on the individual themselves. With proper guidance, being stubborn can become just the right tool that someone needs to succeed...

    Things that only stubborn people can

    understand: 1. As a kid, people told you that you’d make a great lawyer. But later in life, you realized that they might not have been trying to flatter you. 2. Now you understand that when people call you out for being stubborn, they almost always mean it as an insult, but...

    Betrayal is one of the worst feelings ever.

    That's because loyalty is the main quality I look for in any type of relationship. Those are the people who don't deserve my respect, forgiveness, or a second chance. I'll completely ignore your existence, I view you as trash from that point on. They're nothing to me anymore...

    So Stubborn I Keep Changing My Mind.

      I know I am stubborn, which is interesting when I argue because I am even stubborn about changing my mind and seeing the other point of view. I can't help but see what someone else thinks, I'll even argue for a terrorist or murderer. Its weird just how much I will stand...

    Maybe because I don't always feel others have

    my best interest at heart. I make my own decisions regardless if I ask for advice or not. At times, others' input can influence the decision I choose to make but many times, I do what I feel I SHOULD do.. Sometimes I'm wrong but sometimes I'm right. I remember not listening to...

    Yeah That's Me

    I am a stubborn hard headed person. Everyone who knows me personally would surely agree with it. You can never push me into doing something I don't want to do. One good thing about being stubborn is the determination. I can do or achieve something if I really want it.  ...

    Forgiveness after everything you've done to me?

    Well good luck. You better pour your heart out and make sure that apology is sincere enough. If I feel it's not the case and you didn't truly mean what you said, then I'm sorry.

    Yes, I'm stubborn. Just like my Daddy, hard headed. Like when everybody told me to move on from my ex, I kept going back. I got hurt but I still held on. Or like when my mom told me I wouldn't b sh*t. I tried & fell, but each time I fell I got right back up. I still smiled...

    I have been told i am very stubborn.

    It's true though. When I really care about you I tend to be really stubborn about letting you do something if I feel like it isn't good for you. Although there are times I'll just not bother you about it but once it irks me and I get worried I will talk to you about it :)

    that I'm stubborn, and i never have. I don't see this trait as negative. I see it as a strength in charachter, or believing in one's ideas, or standing up for beliefs. I don't stomp my feet like a child, I'm calm and state my reason. Maybe it's childish, but i won't budge if...
