I’d like to think that I am hardworking and definitely not someone who slacks off. You know what I mean. Someone that likes to think they can do anything themselves. But in this post I wanted to show how something I thought was my strong point became my weakness. Confused? Don’t worry, I’ll briefly explain below. So keep on reading…
When I first moved into my house, I wanted to relocate all of my belongings myself. Yep, I didn’t need the help of an expert removalists at all. Crazy? Well not to me at that time because as I’ve mentioned in the first paragraph of this post that I’d like to think I can do everything myself. Another factor that made me choose the first option was the money I would of saved by doing things myself. Anyways, to cut the long story short – I tried moving and relocating everything from my old place to my new house. I wasn’t deterred at first because I own a flat tray ute. So I definitely thought I got the right transportation to do the job. Oh how I really underestimated the amount of work required to move houses! But I was determined, but everything fell apart a couple of hours into the job.
Things went smoothly in the first hour or so, but as soon I had to move my double door fridge – I realise I couldn’t do the job! Even after my brother helped out, we still couldn’t get it on the back of the ute. One, we didn’t have a suitable trolley to lift it. We’ve tried using our own strength but nearly broke our backs doing so! But luckily, before I injured myself in a serious way, something clicked in my head. Help! We need the experts to do this for us!
So there you go! I admit that I was wrong to think that I could do it myself. I was so so wrong. The moral of the story is not to let your ego get the better of you. Just admit to something that you are not good at. Absolutely nothing wrong with it!
