01: Something I Hate About Myself

My dear friend Korin has been doing the 30 Days of Truth and I'm following her lead...just a few days later.

How fitting that this is the first topic since so many women and haunted by low self-esteem. I'm not immune to it and when I found out I was having three girls, I made the decision to do everything in my power to keep self-loathing out of their lives. The most difficult part of that is to build my own self esteem.

I could present you with a list of 5/10/15/20 things I hate about myself. But that's not only unproductive but not the topic. One thing. Hmmm...

I hate that I feel the need to be all powerful. I know this, I know that. Need something done? No problem. Want something? Want to help? No, I've got it. At the end of the day I have no time or energy or desire to spend on myself.

I am working on this. I've started going to a class on Tuesday night, I get manicures again, I'm asking for help and saying no when I need to.
