My Good Side

As requested by the Wizened Wizard...I shall write of the good I have done in my life. She reminded me that I am human. Of that I am well aware. I just really hate hurting people. I am a big softy.

One of the things about me is, I hate seeing my friends hurting...I will say something stupid, act silly/dorky to get a smile. I would do anything for the people I love and care for.

I can't quote a specific time or instance that I have some a huge, significant difference. There are just small things I have done to make small dents in society.

In my early youth, I took medicine, clothing, and food on a mission trip to Mexico. I give to the poor and needy.

I have taken in stray animals and children, having been a "stray" myself at the age of 14, I have a special place in my heart for them.

People have come and gone in my life, from each person, I have learned something about myself or about life. If you truly listen to a person there is so much to be gained.

I continue to strive to learn and grow.

Yesterdays blog, was more about clearing my mind, heart and conscious, to move on, than about me being an truly evil person. It just breaks my heart to know that I, have caused some truly deep hurt to some people that I would have never hurt if I could have helped it.

A lesson to me in this is to learn from my past mistakes and not continue to do the same things to the people that I love most.

Thanks to all, who reminded me I am human and therefore it's acceptable to make mistakes. make mistakes.

I missed yesterday's post and had to go back and read it.

I doubt there is a person alive that hasn't hurt others without even meaning to. It's when you mean to that it becomes a problem.

I'm glad you were able to clear your mind and your heart and are ready to move on now. It's not always an easy thing to do.

It's easy to focus on mistakes of the past and it's quite difficult to forget them. Just make sure you've apologized to the people you've hurt, then move on ...

Very touching. I enjoyed reading positive aspects about you.

It's amazing how one insignificant smile can totally turn someone's day around! Keep smiling and sharing "the small things"!

What a beautiful human you are to! I am so grateful EM introduced us! I know I will learn much from you that I can use on my journey.

To all- thanks for the encouragement and support. I am thankful to have been introduced to all of you and to be able to correspond with you.

Hell girl, if you didn't make mistakes you'd be boring. Or not human. And if not human, you'd probably be some sort of perfect alien being who'd make the rest of us feel like shit.

Keep being you.

Elizabeth Gnome read your posting and commented that "only the best ones will take in stray animals and children." (Gnomes are very sensitive to the balance between good and evil).

See... the scale tips toward the good side... ; )

We are all works in progress.

I just read both postings. I understand how badly you feel about causing hurt. Sadly, almost all of us have people that we've hurt and it breaks our heart to think about it. But I love your more positive post! Hurting someone doesn't make you bad or evil or disgusting. It just makes you human. We've all done it. But it doesn't define who we are. All these kind things you've done are just as much a part of you.
