If I got a school grade it would be about an 83…a C…average…the story of my life….average.
Making my bed. Who knew I would get points for making my bed…crap! But for the points, I could do it.
Know Your Worth. I think this may be a trick question! How do I figure this one out? I do not think it is my financial worth…thank goodness. But how the hell do you measure or feel your own worth? Isn’t that something that will depend on what other people think or measure? I wrestle with this one all of the time and still do not have it right. I get all uppity and cocky and claim I am worthy only to have one person criticize or not give me the attention I need, like the internet/cable company people, the Post Office people etc. etc…and my self-worth is in the toilet and then I get hurt and angry. It is a real work in progress.
Forgive Quickly. Forgiving it seems to be a 2 part process for me and I am missing part 2. Forgiving part 1 is to stop feeling angry or resentful toward (someone) for an offense, flaw, or mistake… and then part 2 is to go on with the relationship as it was before. Part 2 is the part I fail at. I mean I will forgive, part 1 but I am bad at giving anyone another chance to hurt me. I am often accused of not being there emotionally, cutting people out, or not letting people in. That is my armor…I cannot afford to be hurt again. I will never be ugly or rude to someone I have forgiven or bring up the past, but I will not put myself back in the position to be hurt or angry again. I have learned my lesson. I have got the forgive part, but I just cannot seem to forget.
