December 17 – Lesson Learned.
What was the best thing you learned about yourself this past year? And how will you apply that lesson going forward?
i've learned that i'm a very strong person this year. [mentally, obv.]
i've made a few tough decisions this year, decisions that i probably thought i'd never be able to make but i did. i've seen a lot and been through a lot and not [yet] had a mental breakdown.
i've learned that i take on other peoples problems and in turn, create stress for myself. although i don't crack or crumble under the problems/stress like some would.
i wouldn't say it's a good thing that i am so strong because it's not always good to have SO much on ones plate. i ran into a few health problems this year and i really think it was from all the stress of my own and other peoples' issues.
going forward, i learned to care but not over care. people ultimately make their own decisions regardless of how it impacts anyone else and their lives and that's the bottom line. i can care about people without allowing myself to stress about their daily life decisions and i'm okay with that.
i've learned that me and my boys should be my number one priority because if something happens to me, they would be the ones who suffer the most - not the people i used to stress about!
