Day 1 - Something you hate about yourself
WOW! What a tough one to start off with! I mean, yeah, I can name a few things that I hate about myself, but which ones do I want to broadcast on the internet?!?!?!
Well.. here it goes.... I think if I had to name one thing, it would have to be my temper. There are a lot of times (especially with my hubby) There are a lot of times where I'll get really irritated or mad about something small that can be avoided.
I need to learn to let the little unimportant things go. I can completely go off on my hubby for the littlest thing...and then afterwards I stop and think... well why was I mad about that in the first place???
I tend to blow things up and over react I guess. Instead of saying... "Will you please not do that" or just completely forget about it because it's so small and dumb in the first place, I just get all irritated and mad.
I wake up in the mornings with the intention of not getting upset, and letting the little things go.. but when it comes right down to the moment, I just do it without thinking... I don't think before I get mad...I just do and say things i regret saying afterwards.
I've tried doing some reading on anger management.. and got some ideas, but I'm not sure how to implement them. Yes, counting to 10 before I do or say anything would probably help tremendously.. but how to remember to count to 10 in the moment... that's the hard part.
