Matt Willis asked wife Emma for feedback on his behaviour

Matt candidly explained how he recently asked for some constructive feedback from “my friends, colleagues, even Emma”.

However, it seems receiving the feedback proved very difficult for him. He explained: “I have all the best intentions in the world, but I think this is an ADHD trait. I go ‘bah, bah, bah, this is awesome,’ and then I don’t follow through on those plans.

“I don’t do what I say I am going to do. And that came from two people who I work with who, you know, and that was letting not only myself down but my team down. That was something which didn’t sit well with me.”

You come up with this criticism and you can do nothing with it.

He continued: “You come up with this criticism and you can do nothing with it. You just go ‘Oh, that sucks that I’m like that,’ but I was like ‘alright, how do I do that?'”

Matt then explained he is trying to explore how to get to his end goal without giving up on the plans he proposes.

He added in the caption: “This was a hard but much-needed episode… I asked some of the closest people in my life for constructive feedback. From my friends, colleagues, even @emmawillisofficial [eyes emoji].

“Being this vulnerable was a huge step out of my comfort zone but it’s such an important part of my self development.”

Matt also credited the tattoo artist, writing: “Thanks @tomftattoo for your amazing work and fitting me in just in time for today. #anniversary #love.”

Matt’s new ink is a picture of Emma wearing a dress and posing, tattooed onto the back of his calf.

Some fans weren’t so convinced however, with one writing: “Is that meant to be Emma?”

“Who’s the lady in the tattoo?” another questioned.

“Fantastic gesture, but that is not winning Ink Master,” a third added.
