This post is in no way meant to be negative. I whole heartily understand that mistakes are an important part of life and help shape us into the person we are today and the person we'll be in the future. This post is simply me sharing freely about my life and struggles.
:: Sometimes I have very little patience.
:: I'm not as healthy as I'd like to be.
:: I often struggle with feelings of jealousy.
:: For as long as I can remember I have struggled with poor self esteem.
:: I'm not close with my brother and sister and take full responsibility for that.
:: During the ages of 15 through 19 I struggled with drugs.
:: I have always done poorly in school.
:: I can be pretty messy and disorganized at times.
:: I'm really stubborn, especially when it comes to admitting when I'm wrong to my husband.
:: I'm awful at writing thank you notes.
:: It's difficult for me to open up to people.
:: I used to be a smoker. This month will mark two years smoke free and I love that I can say I don't smoke anymore.
:: Finishing projects on time or even at all is a struggle for me.
:: I wish I was a more grateful person.
:: This is something that is still so difficult for me to admit though four years have passed since it last happened. When I was 21 years old I went through a dark depression and turned to cutting myself for comfort. If you could see me in person you'd see that both my arms and legs are covered in long white scars. I still carry a lot of shame from this and rarely ever wear short sleeves or shorts even during the hot summer months.
