    In today's Question to Ponder, it asked when the last time was that you made a mistake. I feel like I'm almost constantly making mistakes. This must be my TMS personality - perfectionism, self-criticism, etc - right? The mistake that came to mind was this morning I got angry - and showed it - at my husband for something small and something I should not really have been angry about. I consider that a mistake - is it? It asked how it made you feel, and I felt guilty and bad about it. Those are feelings I am very familiar with, especially in my relationship with my husband because I often talk to him in anger/irritability. Another mistake that came to mind was that I drank too much on Saturday (admittedly, sometimes I self-medicate with alcohol to help my anxiety)...this also made me feel guilty and shameful (my husband's father was an alcoholic and he absolutely hates drunkenness, especially when I drink too much).

    I just don't know what is "normal." I know I'm too hard on myself, but I don't know how other people think and look at these things. I feel guilty so much of the time.
