I’ve learned that it’s okay to be vulnerable with people; they won’t always reject us. By sharing who we are and our experiences, we can help someone and create new friendships.
I’ve learned that just because someone makes a mistake, it doesn’t mean they don’t love us. We all make mistakes. How we come back from them is what matters.
I’ve learned that allowing ourselves to feel what we’re feeling is one of the greatest gifts we can give to ourselves. It allows us to get to a place of understanding and compassion for ourselves and others.
I’ve learned that it’s so much better to live without bitterness and resentment. What others do has nothing to do with us and refusing to take the behavior of others personally is letting go and setting ourselves free.
I’ve learned that communication is key, but that sometimes it isn’t possible. Sometimes those who we wish to communicate with are unwilling or unable to receive our message, and we have to just accept that.
I’ve learned to let people be where they are. As much as we want to help them, some people don’t want our help and that is okay. It’s okay for them to be where they are. It’s okay for us to be where we are.
