Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control
There it is right in the middle. Kindness. It should also be in me, along with love and patience, but I am afraid that all too often I am not feeling it. It's especially hard at certain times, times when hormones rage and I feel out of control. I try to be nice, I really do, but it's so hard those days. I'm not sure what to do about it and my mother won't be giving me any advice on this stage of life. She always claimed that hormones didn't bother her, though her children all knew different. We knew when to clear out and leave Mom to herself and clear out we did. Sadly, I can't get away from me at my times and the closer I get to that magic birthday that I am in complete denial of (it won't arrive until March) the worse my mood swings become. If I am to be honest, I haven't liked me much this past week, and I wouldn't blame anyone else if they didn't like me much either. Isn't there some special tea or potion I could drink to calm me down and sooth the savage beast within? Something non-alcoholic? Does Saint John's Wort really help? Or should I just find a strong sedative and sleep through that particular week each month? (insert winky face here)
PS. Just in case you think I'm not being nice, I'm trying. Really I am.
