How My Life Lessons Learned

Good Essays
No matter the extent of how life-changing an event may be, every person who has lived on this planet has experienced and been shaped by some sort of lesson. I experienced my life lesson sooner than most people, but I am grateful that I learned it when I did and I owe my life to this specific event. No matter a person’s age, gender, or situation, this lesson is vital to happily survive and excel in this world. The lesson I learned was to let go; I learned to let go of grudges, and to let go of toxic people in my life. In today’s society, people are concentrated on being loved and accepted by all people; but in order to be completely appreciated, people change who they are. People alter the way they look and behave in order to be pleasurable to a certain person, but may act like themselves around another person. I have heard the phrase “let go of people who do not make you a better person”, but I viewed this quote as a joke. …show more content…
I was lost on why I could not get anyone to love me and why my life had been spiraling down ever since I lost my best friend. I believed that there was something truly wrong with me. I never thought that perhaps I was the one who needed to change her personality and her mindset in order to keep a steady healthy relationship. I loathed any time I had to spend alone, so I would either spend time with the wrong people or I 'd waste my time alone. I typically spent time with the people who did not make an effort to benefit me as an individual, and honestly these friends could care less whether I was around them or not. Eventually, I realized that I did not want to be around people who did not bother to prove that our friendship was real and who pressured me into activities that I am less than proud to announce. After I cut my ties with them, I did not have any friends and I did not trust my family with any of my secrets or my

    I still did not truly accept the fact that I had depression, because how could I? I wasn’t on medication or anything. But I did, and my family knew it to. I remember always feeling like my friends didn’t truly like me, that they felt it was more of a chore to be my friend. I like to call my depression, my untrusting friend.…

    I become very introvert as within personality, because my peers were not accept me as who I am and they did not play any online games with me too. I thought that nobody would understand my feelings because they did not want to have any conversations with me nor not letting me join in any groups so I become more interverted and hide my emotions from other people including the family members. I was also stuck in fixed mindset that I could not get along with other people because they were always judging me within my disability so that I could not get out of this infinite loop that set it my mind long time…

    I didn’t want any attention placed on me and so I never wanted a reason to draw any, and if there was one thing that made people ask questions it was death. I had to reassure myself that it would never happen to me so I disconnected at an early age. I wasn’t afraid of losing a loved one, I was afraid of the feelings that came with it, all of the people being around, and the questions that no one has the strength or desire to answer. I never gave thought to how or whether I would miss them or the void the loss would create, I was concerned with how my friends would look at me and what they would think. Death, to me, was an attention getter because what I didn’t realize is that people were showing concern and came to support and encourage you.…

    The conversation about our future felt like there was not going to be a future together because of the lack of touch and intimacy. Avoiding touch at all costs almost resulted the discussion to turn out into an argument. Aside from the conversations we had, the fact that I did not want to be close to him agitated him. My partner knew he had done nothing wrong all day for me to be acting the way I was. The lack of touch was creating…

    Another weakness is that you couldn’t see that none of the people you called my friends were really my friends at all they just wanted to be social friends so they looked good. You kind of figured that out at the end though I guess, you knew I really needed friends it’s just hard to make them when everyone’s so fake and you’re the third wheel on everything, in this case the third wheel is excluded from everything there ever was, or she was forced into going with her old group who hates her so they can exclude her and make her miserable. Thanks for trying to help me make friends thought and the friends I do have that kind of care are either busy, or have a crush on me, still, you know who I’m talking about. Our last weakness would be one of my weakness too so I’ll help take blame for it. We never really got along a lot not even in the end I tried we were just too alike and we knew every button the other had.…

    I seek to understand Him and figure him out, but as far as having a relationship with him, that’s almost foreign territory. This is in large part due to the fact that I don’t even have many relationships with people. My father raised me, and my mother was not in the picture. This led to me being told all my life to suck it up, move on, and not let my feelings show. Ultimately, this led me to forgo emotions entirely.…
