Know Thyself

How well do you know yourself; honestly. Do you know your triggers, your faults, your sensibilities, your negative traits, your positive traits?
If you were instructed to write about yourself, very honestly, and be assured NO ONE would ever read what you wrote, are you self-aware enough to be brutally honest?
Most of us like to think we know everything about ourselves, but in reality, we probably don't or at the very least, are reluctant to admit it.

Kalisha is very astute in this area. She knows herself quite well; the good and the bad and the ugly.

She knows her biggest downfall in the 'sweet things' area is cookies and Little Debbie treats. She struggles with being able to resist the temptation to avoid them. But, to her credit, she doesn't live in denial; she knows it.
All of this is leading up to a conversation we had a few days ago. It was after watching a Hallmark movie.
She said, "Marriage is supposed to be forever, right?"
I replied, "Yes, it is. That is how God intended it. Why?"
"Well, Daniel keeps asking me to marry him, even though it is years away."
After some thought, she said, "Mom, you know how I get tired of things after a while, right? I mean, after the excitement of showers, and getting ready for the wedding and the wedding day and all of that, I think I might get tired of being married."
Ahhhh, do we know ourselves that well?
