30 days of truths

I saw this at The Curious Pug, who saw it at Town Mouse in the Country, and I totally encourage you to do it too!

And here it is:

Day 01 → Something you hate about yourself.


Day 02 → Something you love about yourself.
Day 03 → Something you have to forgive yourself for.
Day 04 → Something you have to forgive someone for.
Day 05 → Something you hope to do in your life.
Day 06 → Something you hope you never have to do.
Day 07 → Someone who has made your life worth living for.
Day 08 → Someone who made your life hell, or treated you like shit.
Day 09 → Someone you didn’t want to let go, but just drifted.
Day 10 → Someone you need to let go, or wish you didn’t know.
Day 11 → Something people seem to compliment you the most on.
Day 12 → Something you never get compliments on.
Day 13 → A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough ass days. (write a letter.)
Day 14 → A hero that has let you down. (letter)
Day 15 → Something or someone you couldn’t live without, because you’ve tried living without it.
Day 16 → Someone or something you definitely could live without.
Day 17 → A book you’ve read that changed your views on something.
Day 18 → Your views on gay marriage.
Day 19 → What do you think of religion? Or what do you think of politics?
Day 20 → Your views on drugs and alcohol.
Day 21 → (scenario) Your best friend is in a car accident and you two got into a fight an hour before. What do you do?
Day 22 → Something you wish you hadn’t done in your life.
Day 23 → Something you wish you had done in your life.
Day 24 → Make a playlist to someone, and explain why you chose all the songs. (Just post the titles and artists and letter)
Day 25 → The reason you believe you’re still alive today.
Day 26 → Have you ever thought about giving up on life? If so, when and why?
Day 27 → What’s the best thing going for you right now?
Day 28 → What if you were pregnant or got someone pregnant, what would you do?
Day 29 → Something you hope to change about yourself. And why.
Day 30 → A letter to yourself, tell yourself EVERYTHING you love about yourself.

Day 01 → Something you hate about yourself.


This is supposed to be in a separate post, but whatevz. This is a surprisingly hard task. Something I hate? Of course there are things I dislike, but I wouldn't say hate. I just have things I need to work on.


It's actually relieving that this question is so hard. We all know women have a million issues with themselves, even beyond body image. And I definitely do too. But I see these issues as things to work on, to improve on. Hating doesn't get you anywhere. 


There are some things I can't change which need to be accepted, like, for example, my height. And by now, at 19 years old, I LOVE my height. I LOVE being under 5-feet tall :)


There are other things that I may not be completely happy with, but these things can be improved. I can strive for them. For example, it's difficult for me to ask for help or support from others, because I see it as a sign of weakness, when I know it's not, and I could actually reach my goals a lot faster and more wholly than I would alone. But still, it takes a lot of willpower to ask for help.


So, not to be a total douchebag and not answer the question, but that is my answer. I can't hate anything about myself; that would just be depressing. I'd focus too much on the hate, and then I'd get no where.


What about you!? Is there anything you hate about yourself?

APRIL! You totally wiggled OUT of that one!

Hahahaha.

Me? Lemmie see...I hate that I have a need to control things and people. It is the underlying factor of most of my heartaches: not being able to let things go or allow people to be who they are, not who I think they should be. It is something I am consistently trying slay every single day of my life.

(You are under 5 feet?!?! Stunned).

Wow, you've got the rainbow theme all over your page :) I like the idea of devoting yourself to a colour a day. Might try it when summer comes around.

Also, I think it's so great that you don't really hate anything about yourself. We should all be about self-love.

I think that's the perfect answer! Some girls I knew used to sit around and talk about what they hated about themselves and it annoyed me immensely. Still does, actually!

Not to sound conceited or anything, but I love my body. Heck, I wouldn't change anything. Sure, I may wish to be taller sometimes, but I don't hate my legs or anything. Bodies are amazing no matter what!

It's always a possiblity that the question was referring to nonphysical things...I guess I sometimes hate that I can't wake up on time. Ha!
