Yeah my friend I absolutely agree with you that my worst enemy is my self because I can't control of it...sometimes I could not mastered my own self...I think Apostle Paul was right in saying " the mine is willing but the flesh is weak..." Thanks... Mobhomeir here...

Unfortunately, yes, winterose. I am my own worst enemy because I consistently do things that have a negative impact on my well-being. I consider myself very fortunate that I have survived for so long when I think of the bad habits I have such as smoking and not always eating healthily. On the plus side, I do seem to have a built-in monitor which sets off an alarm every now and then that tells me to shape up.

It is true. Our self is our best enemy if we do not know how to control our pride and appetite leading to our own destruction, our greediness which will surely lead us in our own downfall and dirty principles, bad attitudes that will certainly bring us in our dirty end.

of course,i will be agree with it,since very yong i have believed if we can control the desires of ourselves then maybe we can't do everything but we will be very successful,because the only ting that stop you becoming successful is your shortage,if you can overcome them then no matter what difficulties you will confront with you can do it.

hi winterose yes I am my own worst enemy as I am a wuss. I let people push me into doing things for them I do not really want to do, and for agreeing with someone out of courtesy when I do not believe the same way. Then I fuss at myself for not sticking up for me for a change. why cannot I just no I cannot do this as I have other plans, or not I do not agree with you that that is funny, racist jokes are never funny. one should say something when someone pulls this racist crap, as I do not appreciate racist jokes at all. they are not funny, they are just demeaning. So I cannot blame others because I did not say no, but from now on nobody tells racist jokes around me. I will tell them off.

me too I do not tolerate racist jokes, and I will not listen to them, if the person is in my house I will ask them to stop and if they don't I will ask them to leave.
