      This is interesting to me on a personal basis right now. I have
      come to see those actions of mine that I do not like, those thoughts
      or memories that indicate weakness or mean spirited tendencies are
      aspects of my psyche.

      I once thought of them as weaknesses or things that happen
      occasionally but are not really me. But they are as much really me
      as the thoughtful caring person that I prefer to dwell on. It is
      more healthy to think of these traits as part of me than to think
      that I am something different from them and that sometimes I "fall
      off the wagon" and do something out of character. That is denial.
