Who Am I?

Judgmental. Harsh. Unkind. Yup, unfortunately, that is me right now. After reflecting on many of my recent conversations, I am finding myself very intolerant of others.

I HATE that about myself.
I am very embarrassed to think of things I have said and thoughts I have had.

I find that I have to often stop and reflect on who I am and what type of person I would like to be.

From this point on, I am going to be nice, kind, empathetic, and do my best not to say any unkind things about others.

Life is just better that way.


As Mother Theresa said, "If you judge people, you have no time to love them."

Your such a good person. I don't know if I have ever heard you say anything mean. This is a good reminder for me.

Becky, I find it very difficult to believe that you are any of these things. You may slip here and there, we all do, but they're not who you are.

You are:
Loving
Kind
Sweet
Patient (I know you don't think so, but you are, simply because you haven't given up)
You are a wonderful wife
Excellent Mother
And a Very Dear Friend.

Becky, you're wonderful.

I will, however, thank you for giving me something to think about today. Thank you.

I am much like you. I try to stop and look at myself, and make a conscience effort to change the things that aren't as I would want them to be.
Great transparent post.

Thank you for posting on my blog today. I'd love to hear how you ran across my blog, and how long you have been checkin me out. :)

have a great day!

Hmmmm, I don't know you very well, but I doubt you are like that all the time and with everyone. I find that as I have grown older I have just become more firm in MY beliefs. I think we can be tolerant of others and love them, but we don't have to agree with them.
