    We've all heard "don't play victim in life".

    It wasn't until I put that into action that I started living. I stopped being a victim! **** happens to everyone and my challenge wasn't unique. And my next step was accepting responsibility for my life. I am responsible for my happiness, my sadness, my anger, my life. Yes...

    I was driving home from lunch,

    thinking that I am pretty normal and then I stopped. I am normal but I do have a few quirks. Don't we all? So I am going to list a few of my quirks. Do we ever know why we do certain things? Here goes: I don't like to be late. I will be 15 minutes early for my own funeral...

    I'm far from perfect,

    I mess up, I make mistakes, I make bad choices but I take comfort In the fact that I'm a good person. I treat people with respect and always trying to be thoughtful of other people's feelings.

    I am a really good person

    but I make plenty of mistakes and I have my flaws. I do not make any excuses for my downfalls and understand that no-one is perfect. I just try to better myself everyday.

    I may be crazy, but at least I'm kind. I have a good, loving and willing heart, as damaged as it already may be I am not afraid to put it out there for others... I am the most wonderful listener and love to help others. (Probably because it's a perfect distraction from my own...

    I may not be pretty or have the perfect body,

    I will admit, but I have a great personality and a kind heart. I have my flaws, I will say. But I am a very nice person if you ever get to know me. :)

    I accept my imperfection just fine,

    because I know you're not perfect either. If you want to argue the point, please do it with someone else :))

    Who I Am

    I was married for 15 years and we became more like friends and were divorced. That relationship took away much of my sexual and personal confidence, and made it hard to trust my partner. I am so glad to have found Kelly, and have her in my life. She has not only restored these...

    I am my definition of what a good person is.

    You can always find someone who will beg to differ on the characteristics a “good person” has. I’m forgiving, but it doesn’t mean I’m a pushover or will continue to put myself in a position to be victimized. I’m generally generous, but that doesn’t mean I will...

    I have made many mistakes in my life.

    I am not perfect. And I will continue to make mistakes and disappoint others. Even though I regret my past mistakes, I will use them as stepping stones. I will rise from my imperfections, victorious, and with the ones I love.

    Imperfect Me
