Now that we’re nearly two months into 2017, I thought it was about time I added to those “Things I learned in 2016…” posts.
2016 was a rollercoaster for me, in all the best and all the worst ways. So it’s taken me a bit of time to reflect and figure out exactly what I learned as a result. So in the spirit of hoping for better things to come, here are some of the highlights (for better or for worse):
The difference between love and in love.
How to believe in forever.
Why they call it heartache.
Being the one to walk away does not make it easier.
Sometimes forever only lasts for a moment.
To stop apologizing for things that you’re not sorry for.
Love isn’t always enough.
You are allowed to feel pain.
Pain does not make you weak.
The importance of trusting your instincts.
Sisters are the best confidants.
Getting out of bed when you’d rather not counts as a victory.
Happiness and love are not the same.
It is never too late to learn a lesson.
The things you know now do not have to ruin the things you knew then.
You cannot help people who do not want your help.
Trying is enough.
You are not giving up on other people when you choose to put yourself first.
Poetry is magical.
Ps. I’m back on WordPress indefinitely because money is a thing I don’t have.
