I am far too trusting of people and always see their positives. This is of course a good thing and means that I don't see the negatives in people and don't judge people. However it also means that I am the one who ends up hurt because I trust people and just want to believe that they are good and don't mean me harm, when that isn't always the case. Unfortunately I've been a little too believing of people's goodness and I've been the one who ended up getting hurt.
Perfect grades don't mean anything if I end up breaking from the stress. My health will always come first and should be priortized. Grades and school work cab be fixed and those things sort themselves out but if I ruin my health or my mental health falls too negatively, that can't always be fixed.
I need to learn to say no. I am a push over and don't always say no, I just agree or say nothing at all. And get alot of guilt if I say no, but this year I need to learn to not feel guilty for putting myself first and not just agreeing to everything.
I have learnt talking about my problems doesn't have to mean bad consequences. People care and I'm not complaining or being annoying just because I mention I'm struggling. It's ok to struggle, but it's not ok to give up.
I have learnt that at times I will feel like giving up, but that is not an option.
Things don't always turn out as planned or expected but that can be a good thing.
I've learnt that I can eat insane amounts of food and that makes my workouts even better!!!
I've learnt that I can do so much more than I believe I can. I've pushed myself in exercise and workouts and done things I didn't think I could.
I've learnt to enjoy travelling. Ever since I became sick - back in 2008/2009, I've hated travelling 1) because it changed my routines and then 2) since spending so many years in hospital and developing a fear of sleeping anywhere but at home. I struggled with sleeping away from home. But this year I've enjoyed travelling and changing routines hasn't been a bad thing, I've still been able to have my routines and do what I enjoy.
I have learnt more about myself as a person. What makes me feel good, what I don't like. What makes me stronger and what makes me weaker. What I like and dislike. What I need to improve on and what I need to learn to accept or change!
What things have you learnt in 2015?
