Columnist courageous in admitting faults

Re: These pets are not the cuddly kind (Column, Nov. 9)

In defense of the writer who was brave enough to reveal her pet peeves, readers, I believe she was just sharing a quality not unique to herself and not one that she is particularly proud of.

There comes a time in one’s life where, while realizing a lot of what you do is pretty good, there are still a few habits and thoughts that do not fall under ‘best practices.’ Having the confidence to admit them might be the first step in changing for the better.

She was being candid and hoping that we would relate to it.
