Lessons learned

Published by: JoJo Matthews

If there is any good things that have come from this part of my journey it’s this.

I’ve become much more tolerant of others’ views/opinions. Not one person is going to agree with all of my choices and that’s ok. Everyone is entitled to their opinions. I don’t have to agree or like those opinions. I do however have to understand they have that right to difference of opinion. Sometimes the best thing to do is to just ignore the negativity.

I try to stand up for those that seem to be the underdog. To show them another way of looking at things. I try to give them peace of mind that it’s ok to think the way they think, that they are simply human. I try to choose my words from a place of love and understanding.

I’ve learned to love unconditionally not just my own child but Joey and my friends and the rest of my family.

I’ve learned that the past is the past and the best place to leave the past is in the past. Yes the past has shaped us all into who we are now. We can access that past if needed just in case we encounter something in our present where we can apply those lessons. But to continuously drag past indiscretions into the present will only hold me back from what I am suppose to experience and learn in the present.

I am still learning how to deal when the present gets hella stormy. I admit that. I am learning that running and avoidance isn’t helping in fact it’s blocking the lessons and experiences of the present.

Most of all I learned that I am human, I’m imperfect and that’s ok.
We are all human and all imperfect and we all make mistakes.

We ask that our loved one’s mistakes not be held against them. Therefore we shouldn’t hold others’ mistakes against them.

I’ve also learned that there is a line to balance between all this to ensure I am not taken complete advantage of and sometimes I walk to far on one side of the line but then I remember I’m human and I correct my path and carry on.
