Week 3 homework

I’m writing my story and including all the negative experiences. If I understood the instructions correctly, that was what I am supposed to do. “Be honest. Write about where you did it wrong, where you were slighted, a helpless victim”. Reading my own story I feel sad/awful. But I don’t really look at my past this way. I faced challenges but it was part of my journey. I’m strong and know how much I’m loved because of it. Am I doing this homework correctly?
