There is only one substance in the universe that can bring Superman to his knees and it is that green, glowing substance called "kryptonite."

What is your kryptonite? I have several:

1 - Sweets. Even when I was anorexic, I ate my sweets, especially chocolate.

2 - Good manners. My daughter used to let her friends know that, if they said thank you, I would give them just about anything! I fed them often.

3 - Dissing me or hurting my feelings. If someone disses me or hurts my feelings it is a blow to my solar plexus. I become a small, hurt child and want to either hide or strike back. It happened to me tonight and I know, with everything in me, that the person who did it didn't mean to hurt me. Still, I, who do not cry, almost broke down like a blubbering infant.

4 - A lack of time spent with God. When I don't communicate with God through studying His Word and prayer, I am brought to my knees in weakness. I become less and less like Him and more and more depressed and anxious.

What is your kryptonite?


  1. Interesting "K" post. :-) Feeling as though I have let others down. Feeling as though I have disappointed people I love. Other than that, I do okay :-) !

  2. Everyone has a Kryptonite that is true. My weakness is for sweet foods and furry animals. They are big distractions for my writing.

  3. Mine sound very similar to yours! Our flat is having a small conflict at the moment and I just want to hide away in my room until it's over! I can't bear the thought of having upset someone or them being cross with me!

    Have a beautiful weekend, thank you for your comment :)

  4. Oh Gail, Fantasic post!!!

    I'll never again think of 'Kryptonite' as just something that affected Superman.

    I'd rather think of the positive things that bring me to my knees, but I have to say number three is a biggy for me as well, except I can't help but cry.

  5. Mine would be chocolate or doughnuts - predictable, I know, but anyone can get round me with that sweet sugary goodness. :-)

  6. I guess mine would be my child in pain.
