I don't ever want to paint myself like a person who believes that they are perfect, and while I do share a great deal of myself online, it is in no way the sum of who i am.
I can be grumpy and unbearable, bitchy and mean. But I know myself well enough to know that I'm better than the bad days.
I think in order to be a better person, you have to look both in and outward. You have to give people the benefit of the doubt, understand that not everyone operates in the same fashion as you – and that's ok.
I also think it's so important that we recognize our shortcomings, say I'm sorry when it needs to be said and just TRY to be better people. I'm not trying to be all touchy-feely, and we don't need to sit in an e-circle and sing kumbaya, but being a work in progress means you have to actually do some work.
