I've struggled most of my life trying to accept and deal with my "faults" as others have pointed them out to me. But it wasn't until a loved one threw many of my faults in my face and put me on a path of self-discovery and self-acceptance that I began to not see my "faults" as bad things. I started to realize that what others see as faults are just additional facets of my personality. In fact, as I started to talk to others in my life about these issues, I learned that many close to me saw these not as faults but just as parts of my personality or even strengths. Although this has been a long journey for me, I recommend to anyone who struggles with their "faults" to try and start addressing them head on to learn that maybe they are just another aspect of you that someone loves you for. Has anyone else had similar experiences?
