Day 1 - Something You Hate About Yourself

Well, nothing like starting off this challenge on a cheery note!

I hate that I have a hard time letting things go and having faith - in other people, in the future, etc. I don't think I'm one of those people who holds grudges forever, but I definitely remember. Maybe I don't give people enough chances. I think it all stems from me being a control freak, type A person. I've learned over there years that it's easier to depend on yourself than to depend on other people, especially if you want to get something done.

As with any personal flaw, the one who bears the brunt of this issue is my husband, which isn't fair to him. In all of our struggles, the lesson that I've learned is that the hardest part of forgiveness is not the acceptance of the other person's apology, but truly letting it go on your end. The people who deserve my faith are the ones I need to work harder to give it to.
