What is the hardest lesson you have had to learn over the last year?

For me it is learning that some times people will say things that I won't like but it doesn't mean I should keep giving them fuel for their fire. I realize some people truly just enjoy arguing and it is better to turn and walk away than get involved.

  • That when I hurt inside, my husband and my other loved one truly cannot "see" it. If I need a hug or I need to talk, I have to be my own best advocate . . . . and tell others what it is I am needing.

    It seems rational, I know, but I have a bit of a wall sometimes.

  • Lets see.
    1. Live on little to no money, I left my job to start a Daycare & then DH was fired after he hurt his back. It has been a very stressful time in our house with no money and a baby to care for. I am learn to manage my stress better but there for awhile I did not think that our marriage was going to survive this.

  • I agree. Also, stop worrying about things I have no control over & to worry when there is a reason too, is a hard one for me to learn & do.

  • That the friends that you think are your friends are truly the ones that are there when you are going through a hard time. Some of them might even surprise you!

  • that not all moms want to protect their children. some will go out of their way just to hurt their children just because they feel like it. (yes my mom)
