What I've Learned Thus Far

It has been nearly a year since everything in my life seemed to fall apart. I was a mess. I couldn’t hold a conversation, I was emotional beyond belief, and I was alone.

Since then, I have gone to therapy, and still do.

I am still emotional, I’m a lady, but I have learned to tune into my emotions and learn what they mean.

I have learned that I am a beautiful young lady full of potential.

I learned that God doesn’t give you more than you can handle. It may seem like too much, but He has a plan and He knows what is best for you.

I have learned to take everything one day at a time. There is no use getting worked up over things that haven’t even happened yet or may not happen at all. Live life and love life.

I have learned that everything in life, and I mean everything, is a learning experience. The bad, the good, the beautiful, and the ugly are all chances to learn and grow as a person, a son/daughter, a child of God, a mother/father, sister/brother, friend, student, teacher, and whatever else you may be to yourself and to others.
I have learned that the past is the past. You can't fix the past. You can try and make the best of the outcomes and the lessons you have learned, but that is about it. It is over and done and that is it.

I have learned that friends and family need to be cherished. They may not fully understand all the time, but their hearts are in the right place.

So, I have learned a lot this year. This is only some of it. A lot can happen in the course of a year and thankfully, for me, it has been mostly for the better.
