I Am Very Unfair

However, I've identified this trait as an "Area Of Improvement" and I'm working on it.

It is painfully ironic that frequently the defense mechanisms we develop to survive childhood become the biggest impediments to living successfully as adults. There does come a time when it is "okay" to unlearn these tricks - and grow out of them.

I grew up in a very dyfunctional environment. I cared for my mother and brother from a young age. I was giving and selfless because I was surviving. I think I have developed a selfish shell around me to protect me from giving too much of myself away now... It disappoints me because the man I love has pointed out that I am selfish.. :-(

"I could blind myself in the summer." HAH - Excellent.

After living in Chicago for 5 years, I was almost transparent. My own family in Florida made fun of me. I could blind myself in the summer.<br />

But, moving to Texas changed all that. Now I have a "tan," crisper on the left than the right. :)
