A Character Challenge
There's not much that can get me upset and I'm pretty easy going, for the most part. I have the common factor of most females, but aside from the monthly emotional stuff, I'm very passive. Maybe to a fault. I can be too much of a people pleaser and for the sake of keeping peace, I often sacrifice my need for being heard or defending myself. It's not important to me because I know who I am. I have passions and principles like most, although they may be different. I realize that my passion for living a life fully pleasing to the Lord may not be the same as someone else, but it is what sets my gauge for my principles. I aim to please God, not people. But being a people pleaser, I often miss my target. I have suffered the consequences from worrying too much about what other people think or trying too hard to please someone other than God. People expect way too much anyway, because in general, we are a selfish generation and good character is hard to come by.
