What life lesson did you learn the hard way?

24 Days of Thought-Provoking Questions

Hello Wild Ones💖

I hope you are well and taking care of your mental health. I have managed to find some sort of bliss in my situation and find peace in the hope that all these things are happening for a reason. I am just taking every day as it comes and thanking God for His grace and love as I live. Now onto my birthday ramble!!!

What life Lesson did you learn the hard way?

I think this lesson would be to love myself. I have had too many situations where I chose others over myself and I wound being hurt in the end. I am still learning to love myself and show up for myself because I have always found myself helping others but not myself. I have always forgotten about myself especially when it comes to emotional situations. I always find a way to want to fix others but never do I stop for a second to think that I am supposed to allow myself to enjoy the salvation that I keep offering these people. The biggest lesson I have learned is that I don’t love myself enough or even give myself a chance to make a mistake. I have betrayed myself more than I can remember. I have sat on the committee that just spends time gossiping about me and announcing to the world that I was broken and not worth fixing. Thing is even with yourself, Karma is a bitch. You can’t be mean to yourself and not expect to face the repercussions of your actions!!! So when Karma came knocking, I was not ready for what life was throwing at me. I found myself writhing on the floor with nowhere to go. The lesson is that you really need to love yourself even before you start loving others. Always remember that.

So what lesson did you have to learn the hard way?

with love and lessons,

Jackie

    Ahhhh, this is easy for me …….. know your family (genetic) health history and protect yourself as much as possible from the things that could go wrong. My family has a long history of heart disease, which I mostly ignored and did not listen to the signs my body was telling to me ……. I ended up needing and having a heart transplant. True story!
