I am not perfect

I hate when people tell me that I think I am perfect!  I am far from perfect… I could give you a whole long list of all the ways I am so not perfect… and honestly I will be the first one to tell you how I am not perfect. 

I lost my virginity at 13 years old!! To a boy that never spoke to me again after that day… oh and he stole my pager that same day!

I hated school… I would fake sickness, headaches, cramps, whatever I could to miss school.  And make my mom late for work and stress her out.

I cheated on my ex husband. 

I hurt him beyond words (my ex-husband)  and I divorsed him because I was selfish and I wasn’t willing to try and make it work… It was easier to just walk away.

I wasn’t a good mom when I was going thru my divorce. I was very selfish then.

I have slept too easily with too many people.

I have lied.

I have hurt people.

I have done wrong.

But I know what I did… I try hard not to do those things again. I don’t think I am better than any one else…  and I sure don’t think I am perfect…

I am learning from my mistakes… I am trying to do better by them.. and if in someones eyes that makes me perfect.. than thank you for the compliment, but I am far from it.
I just want the best for me… and the best for my family.  I am not going to settle for anything less then the best.  


God Bless

  1. I don't think that you are perfect. I know that no one is perfect.

  2. Thats a good way to think about things. No one is perfect! We have all done things we are never going to get to redo in our life. Cant take them back, but we can do better in the future....and you will...Dont beat yourself up over the what ifs and the cant redos....

  3. No one is perfect... all we can do is learn from our mistakes and strive not to repeat them in the future.

  4. I thank God for bringing you back. I still cringe when I think of what could have happened, But God was with you all the time, when I couldn't be, and He let me be there for Scooter while you were learning what He needed you to learn. I love you.

  5. Hi, I'm a new follower and I just want to thank you for your honesty! We hide behind so many masks and it is refreshing to read a post that is just what it is honest even if it isn't pretty but that's life and the we move on to a new day. Great post!


Let me know what you think... good, bad, and the downright ugly...
