Deeply Flawed

Do you ever feel like you've become the worst possible version of yourself?
The meanest, cattiest, rudest, bossiest, most selfish version?
Sometimes I stop and listen to myself or see how I'm behaving and I instantly regret it. I'm embarrassed and spend days repeatedly beating myself up about it.
I guess the ideal thing would be to stop myself before I do and say these things right? But most of the time when I'm like this, I don't even realize it. I'm just grumpy, or not feeling well or just feeling like a huge bitch. Like this weekend. I had a migraine for several days and was hormonal. Several times I caught myself being just awful.
I wish I could say that I was perfect and never lost my temper and never said or thought a mean thing in my life...a saint if you will. I don't really foresee that happening anytime soon.
I have less of a problem accepting the faults of others than I do my own. I wonder what that says about me? The only thing I can do, I guess, is try better tomorrow because "tomorrow is another day with no mistakes in it....yet." (from Anne of Green Gables)

At least you admit it and are working to improve it. None of us are perfect and have bad days. Now, if it were everyday and the majority of the days, I would say you might need to get help. I think you are an awesome person.
