Bad habits influence my life It is very hard for people to accept their mistakes, but the hardest part is to correct them since no one is perfect and it might take some time as well. Some people think they are too perfect in life; unfortunately, I am one of those who believe it. However, thinking that I am a perfect person does not make any harm to people, but, when I come back to reality and see things around me from a different point of view, I realize that are my bad habits the ones hurting my family and friends. Therefore, being always late, being lazy, and drinking heavily has marked my family and friends deeply, causing on me a bad reputation and a bad person in life. First of all, being always late has caused me so many problems, not only with my family and friends but also with my job and myself too. I am always late for my responsibilities at home such as picking up my son from school, or, picking up mi wife from her job.
I am even late when I try to surprise her by having a romantic moment at home, which by the way, is not good at all if I want her to have a good concept from me. In the same way, being late to my job has caused several conflicts between my managers and me, since I am in the restaurant business, no lateness is allowed. For instance, a couple of weeks ago, I missed 3 tables and a bonus of $400 because I went 20 minutes late to work; if I would have gotten early to the place I would have not missed that money. As a result, I lost that money and got punished for a week at my job.
Then, being lazy has also caused me a lot of problems mostly at my job. Since the restaurant business requires lots of energy, because the place may get very busy, it is very common that a person ends up tired, but in my case, it causes me more than just being tired, making me think about resting instead of collecting more money for my family, specially for my son's education, since I want him to have the best one around. As a result, this problem has given me lots of losses at work; since my lack of interest in working hard has been so constant I lost too much money, money that could have been used for so many things such rent, home expenses and treats that I would have loved to give to my family. Finally, the worst bad habit that I could have is to drink very heavily.
Most of the time I drink at my job with my friends at the end of our shifts, also I drink with some friends after we play soccer. The problem is that I do this constantly and in big proportions. For this reason, my family has lost confidence on me because I always deny that I was drinking, when the truth of the matter is that I really was doing it. Therefore, I think that in order to get my reputation and love from my beloved ones, I must correct these problems on their totality, letting them know that I am not as bad as they think, and my feelings and emotions towards them are as important and deep as theirs are toward me.
