i'm a martyr, in case you didn't know - and no, it's not a good thing.
because i'm also stubborn and dramatic.
and stubborn, dramatic martyr is one messy and selfish combination.
a friend said to me a few weeks ago that she started learning all the uglies in her heart once she became married, and that it was a tough road, but full of deep growth.
i have become painfully aware of the uglies in my heart over the last year and a bit, and right now, it's all i can see.
i am so undeserving of love, but so abundantly thankful for it. and every day, because of love, i will strive to be more worthy of it, and i will not take it for granted.
