Pour Your Heart Out - Take Me as I Am

Shell over at Things I Can't Say hosts - Pour Your Heart Out.

Click over to her to read the Rules.

So I'm just going to get it out there and admit it. I can be a bitch sometimes. I'm super emotional and stubborn as a mule. When my environment gets thrown out of whack - I get even worse. Sounds awful doesn't it?

I'm not finished yet though. I am also capable of saying some pretty nasty things when mad. I will cut you down to size and make you feel lower than you ever thought possible. I hate sob stories of people who feel that things keep happening to them and take no responsibility for the way their lives turn out. We live in the land of opportunity -here anything is possible - if you choose to drop out of high school, make babies, stay at home while your partner works a dead end job and supports a drug habit and wonder why you are poor - I just have trouble conjuring up pity for you. I firmly believe that you create your own destiny.

On the other hand I am  also capable of compassion and caring like you could never imagine. I can forgive be there for you even when I'm mad. I love without limits. I will worry over you and pray for you over sleeping, eating and caring for myself.

So what's the point of this? I guess I'm just saying take me as I am. My flaws are many and it might not be easy loving me or being my friend but its probably worth the hassle. Know that I blow up quickly but will turn around and apologize just as fast IF I was in fact wrong. If not - fat chance in hell. :) I'm probably hardest to deal with right now but - can I lean on you this time and I'll be there for you when you need it?

Oh, can I relate! It's amazing how two such opposite personality traits can co-exist so peacefully in one person. But, it makes sense to me!

Thanks for linking up!

I really get tired of people trying to be something their not or act all nicey all the time when life really sucks and they just feel like complaining!!
Thanks for sharing

Yes, I so relate to this! I love how you have accepted yourself, for all your parts, and are telling others to do the same. None of us are perfect, deal with what we are!

I like you.
No sense in pretending we're different then who we really are.
Life's too short to be any thing other then honest.

Good for you.

I've had those moments too. I snap sometimes quicker than a toothpick, and then regret it.


Kelly said...

You sound pretty cool and normal to me. And, most importantly, honest!

Whoa, I could have very well wrote this post. Seriously, I am all those things and I value all the people in my life who can take me as I am.
