I say I'm giving up sugary things for lent. But, be the first to know, I'm giving up speaking unless spoken to, I'm giving up talking about myself for the most part, I'm giving up feeling like a bottomless pit at the end of the day because I can't keep anything about anything to myself. Filling conversation with gossip, gossip in general for that matter.
The point is, I want to become the me in my head. I don't want to hate myself inside because I have no self-control and an abundance of bad habits. I guess you could say I want to appear less selfish, though I am doing this for personal reasons and that in turn is "selfish".
All I'll ever want is acceptance, from myself, and from you.
