There is no shame in admitting our flaws and mistakes. We all have them, make them. Once we embrace them, we are free to be better. Also, when character defects, it makes you more approachable to others.
I once heard someone say, "make fun of yourself before someone else has the chance".
It's hard the first time you recognize your flaws, let alone, say it out loud. It only means you're human. Glorious: delightful; wonderful; completely enjoyable. It may seem strange to call our messes glorious, but overcoming them, certainly has the capacity to make us more glorious.
I went to church with a young woman a while ago, who, had a great life. We were at a retreat together when I heard her say, "I've had a good life. No problems, no tragedies, good parents and happy childhood." She went on to say; "the one problem is: I have no compassion.
Having flaws and character defects creates a compassionate heart. I have a relatively easy time relating to others with problems. This is a gift. To realize I am no better or worse than anyone else.
I just watched a story in which, a young woman was meeting the man who killed her first child. He was driving drunk and killed several of her family members. He cried as she said she forgave him. There but for the grace of God go I.
I certainly don't want to go through life feeling like a piece of shit. If I can have compassion for others, I can muster it up for myself. Learn from my mistakes and flaws.
Fantasizing the freedom to be a glorious mess and hold my head up high.
