30 Days of Truth...day two

Day 2: Something you love about yourself.

Surprisingly, this one, I found much harder than yesterday.

I've been wracking my brain, trying to think of something to answer here and the only thing I can come up with really is my passion and my compassion. Let me explain...

When I believe in something, I am FIERCELY passionate about it. I will fight to the end for what is right, and I don't let what other people think about my fight worry me. I am not afraid to put my name and my honour behind something I believe in and I will never hide behind a fake name. I have had several battles to fight, many of them I have blogged about. Search my blog for "portables" and you will catch my drift.

I am a very compassionate person. When something happens to someone else, I internalize it and almost actually feel their pain physically. A death, a sickness, a hardship...I carry other peoples' burdens in my heart. They nearly consume me. As much as this can make for a very stressful and depressing life, I am proud of my heart and I love that in most circumstances, I make the other person smile, if only for a moment. I like to think that if the other person knows that I am walking with them, at least in spirit, that they don't feel so alone in a bad situation. I wish more people had this characteristic. I think it would be a much nicer world to live in if they did.

Care to join in? Blog your 30 days of truth and leave me a comment with your link or, simply comment here. I'd love to read your truths too! Pin It

I think these are both great things to love about yourself. My husband is compassionate to a fault because he can ruin his entire week by finding out something bad happened to someone he barely knows. It sorta makes me crazy sometimes but I agree that more people need to be more compassionate. People simply lack the ability to just BE with someone when they need it. They either want to know something they can DO for them or they move on.
