Since the beginning of time, I’ve always been a pretty horrific friend and dreadful significant other. I’m not really sure why but it is something that I am trying really hard to work on. I don’t want to be unreliable. I don’t want to be selfish and mean. I want nothing more than to be someone that a person can lean on. Someone that can be counted on when the going gets tough and the tough gets going. Being selfish doesn’t help that cause. Neither does not thinking before I speak or react. I want to be a better person. I feel like I’ve used being treated like shit as a crutch to just be…. well… shitty.
So how do you completely change who you are? What are the stepping stones? What’s the first directive, the course of action?
How do I change so that way the people I love can lean on me?
