Any of which have consequences following them; I have learned to deal with the mistakes I have made and deal with them in the best manner I can. The hardest thing about making mistakes is dealing with the grief you are causing the ones closest to you. It’s the ones’ closest to me that are truly being hurt. Friends and family both ask me, if you could would you want to take back the mistakes you have made? My answer to that is no I would not; its because of the mistakes I have made that make me who I am today.
I strived to succeed, so when I didn’t do my best I would get very upset with myself and try harder until I was the best. I hate the feeling of failure especially when I knew that I had tried my very hardest. My parents always told me try your hardest or don’t try at all, so anytime I lost at something I felt like I was letting them down. Like I said before the best feeling in the world is when your parents show pride in you, well how awesome that feels is coinciding with how horrible it feels when they are upset with me. Through the years I have learned what I am good at and what I don’t excel in.
I was up for the challenge even though I had nothing to lose, but had much to gain. Due to the challenges I faced with my divorce, and the resignation of my job, I felt I losed everything I worked hard for. However, in the mist of having both it was tearing me apart for years. Therefore, difficult decisions had to be made in other to find myself again. Having peace in my life was not an option anymore.

Before I read the book, I could have been overdramatic and reacted theatrically to what now seems as silly happenings and consider myself to have a difficult life. Although I know my life is not perfect, I now regard my family and home life as the life I would chose to live over any other. The thankfulness this book has rooted in me has forever changed my life. Whenever I find myself in a difficult situation, I know that I have a family who loves me and will support me through anything, regardless of what it is. I realize now that this is a blessing that others may
It seemed as if I was experiencing hell at one place and time in my life, I needed someone or something to become a safety net, a resting place, a sign of hope. I found God through all the craziness in my past and I found him to be everything I need. It seems as if I can count on him more than anyone in my life from him restoring me mind body and soul. He is the most important person in my life, he rescued me when I couldn’t hang on he told me to hold on. I believe that if he didn’t come when he did, I would literally be lost and because of him showing and making me feel that I am somebody, through compassion and overwhelming love I wouldn’t have achieved and conquered the things that I have
We both believed the people that suppose to love us the most hurt us the most. Every time I turned to read a page, in each little word it was giving me closure to my past. The tears would stroll down my face like a stormy day. I hated that I was reminiscing on the past through each chapter I read. But, it gave me a clear understanding of how I was acting and what was holding me back from letting go of the pain.
Human suffering is universal and inescapable. We all suffer at times and at times when we are fortunate we learn from that. This lesson I learned when I broke my left hand wrist two times and being an immigrant when I suffered from not knowing English as well understanding hardness of communicating. Recovering from suffering is not like recovering from a disease. Many people don’t come out healed; they come out different.
That game was the biggest failure I have ever been a part of. We got beat by a team we were not even close to our same talent. My coach is one of the people I look up to the most. After the game, he gave me a speech about how I have to work as hard as I can so this does not happen again. What he told me really hit me because I started working as hard as I could so we did not have that feeling the next
My self esteem was in the dirt and everyone in my presence experienced the new bad me because of my displaced anger and hatred for my ex and me. Freud believed that the mind tries to protect itself from frustration and severe distress such as war, rape, death, and so on. He believed that we have several techniques for this, which he called defense mechanisms (Corsini, 1994, p. 390). I was no longer the outgoing, free spirited, kind hearted, and trusting person; I was the total opposite and at times I didn’t even like myself. With the help of God, my family, and my fiancé I was able to pull through and treat it as the life lesson it was.
