I’m Good but I’m Also a Pile of Crap. Guess What. So are you!

What’s your favorite thing about yourself?

In my younger years I would have answered this question with, “I care about people,” or “I’m adventurous,” or “I’m flexible.”

Honestly, after 51 years of life, I think my best quality is that I have both clear self awareness as well as accepting that those around me are similar. Yep, I’m good. But I’m also a pile of $#it. Guess what. So are you!

I have good things about me, but I’m not all good. I have bad things about me but I’m not all bad. I realize everyone else is the same and that allows me to have sympathy, forgiveness and whatever-lets-just-move-on capabilities. It’s a super power, really. This all allows me to have an amazing levelness of emotion. Not too extreme, not too distant. It also allows me to work on myself without being too critical or too passive. It allows me to view and accept others as they are rather than what I want them to be.

We’re all in this S#it show together. Why be a dick about it? Be as kind to the flaws of others as you’d like them to be as kind to you. What a different world it would be if we all followed that one ideal . . .

What’s your super power?
