Donna at Write Now, Write Later posted the beginning of a series, Thirty days of Truth, that I enjoyed and decided to do as well.
Day 1 is something you hate about yourself.
I hate my anxiety and how I look cold and haughty when I feel shy and overwhelmed.
I hate that my chattering is seen as self-absorption, because I want others to chatter back. Every person's story is interesting to me, not just my own.
I hate that my female friendships have resembled Margaret Atwood's Cat's Eye, and whenever I try to peel back the bandage, I get sliced again. I wish I had a female best friend.
Above all, I hate feeling so misunderstood while I do everything I can to push others away.
