Five Life Lessons I’ve learned the Hard Way

While some people master their life lessons quickly, others tend to take their time.
Many others, like me, learn some of them the hard way. In fact, I’m still working through some of them.

1. Sometimes good enough is simply good enough. We are not meant to do everything perfectly. We can give ourselves permission to make mistakes and hopefully learn from them, and we can always improve ourselves as we go. I’ve learned that extreme perfectionism can trigger bouts of depression, anxiety, and procrastination.

2. It is essential to let go of the past. It may take the form of clearing out old limiting beliefs, healing emotional wounds, or forgiveness work. Either way, letting go of past hurts and negativity clears the way for more positivity.

3. We are all worthy of love. We are worthy of love from ourselves, other people, and God. It doesn’t matter how many mistakes we’ve made because all is forgiven. True unconditional love does not judge us for those things.

4. Other people’s rejection, hatred, intolerance, anger, and unforgiveness most likely has nothing to do with you. Often times, these people are projecting their own hurts and insecurities. Try not to judge them.

5. It is okay to ask for help. If we don’t, we just make things harder for ourselves. Also, by asking for help, we give another person a chance to be of service. This is a lesson that I’m definitely still working on, but I can tell you that every time I’ve asked for help, I was rewarded. Yes, you might encounter those who are less willing to help, but you can choose to steer clear.
