Things I Need to Work On

1.) I need to start listening to my gut. It's always right. My mother always told me to go with my gut. She is a smart woman, and I should have taken her advice a long time ago. But she was mother, so of course, I wasn't going to listen to her. :) Now that I am becoming a young woman, I'm taking all of her life lessons to heart.

2.) I need to take things for what they are, not what I want them to be. Bottom line,I read into things too much and don't like to accept things for what they are depending on the situation. So, I guess you could say I'm a hard head.

3.) I need to work on not letting people have such a hold of my emotions, especially when I am just getting to know them. I guess another way of putting this is, I need to learn to not jump the gun.

4.) I have to remember to not let my wants become greater than my needs. To want something is just a feeling of desire. A need is a situation is which something is required. I wanted things to work out, but I need someone who wants me.

5.) I need to remind myself that I am worth it, and that I deserve to be treated the way I want to be treated. I need to learn to not sacrifice myself for others and stay true to myself and my values.

6.) I don't want to give people more than they are willing to give to me. I give a lot, and I am happy to, but I should then expect something in return. There is nothing wrong with that. Life should be a give and take relationship with others, not just give, give, give.

Well, that was my little pep talk for myself. I have gone through some very good life lessons in the past few weeks, and although there were some tough experiences, I fully believe that what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger. I definitely feel I am walking away from these experiences a stronger, more focused person who knows what I want, need and deserve.
