My biggest one is surrendering to me. Like, me me. To stop being innerly embarrassed by who I am. I unconsciously correct myself a thousand times a day to fit in nicely. Lord. This is annoying and awful. It’s hard to explain. Even in traffic I try to make life easier for everyone else. I spend my days compromising constantly. What a control freak!

I really like the notion that compromising is being a control freak.  I’ve never thought of it that way at all.  I’ve always considered myself the easy-going, non-controlling one.  I know, you maybe thought I was fighty.  I am.  And easy going to a fault.  They’re both true.  I’m mostly only fighty via text.
