Lesson Learned – #reverb10 – December 17th, 2010

Lesson Learned – What was the best thing you learned about yourself this past year? And how will you apply that lesson going forward? – (Author: Tara Weaver)

I learned that it’s really hard to be me when I’m pretending to be someone else. It’s even more hard to be me when I don’t listen to me. I’ve also learned that the me that I thought I was doesn’t even compare to the me that I’m becoming and frankly the journey of finding me is far better than anything I ever expected. I learned that who I am is more important than what others think I am, even if I have a hard time remembering that what they think doesn’t matter. I’ve learned that fretting over making a decision and worrying about what is best for everyone else, really is the most destructive thing I can do to me. I’ve learned that sunrises and sunsets make me happy. I’ve learned that the love of a good dog makes up for what I thought I was missing out on because I don’t have a guy in my life. I’ve learned how to be better at learning to forgive. Forgiveness isn’t always black and white. There’s a lot of gray in forgiveness and a lack of forgiveness.

I’ve learned that someone is going to hurt you and you are probably going to hurt someone else. This is life. What matters is how you take care of that hurt after it’s been done.
