Weak things become Strong

It's one thing to be mad at other people, but I think that being upset with yourself is a whole new level of unhappiness. I am not in any way shape or form saying that I am a humble and kind-hearted person, because I definitely am not; however, I think my biggest problem that I face is blaming myself for things that are out of my control. Things that I could easily be mad at others for I tend to kill myself for. In most personalities, I believe that it's easier to see your own flaws than the flaws of others. But sometimes, forgiving yourself is one of the hardest things to do.
I am so very, very grateful to Anela for reminding me of my "Scripture of the Year" (The Book of Mormon) that I chose for myself to use as a guide.

ETHER 12:27
And if men come unto me 
I will show unto them their weakness. 
I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; 
and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; 
for if they humble themselves before me, 
and have faith in me,
then will I make weak things become strong unto them.

So yes. I am going to get "down". I am no where near perfect. I don't even have perfect faith most of the time. But I do have a perfect knowledge that weak things will become strong when I come unto Christ. I am not happy with myself, but at the very least I can try my best to be a better person with the help of the Lord. I have made plenty of terrible decisions in my life. Doesn't mean I have to be unhappy forever.
