It was still worth it to learn what and what not to do in these situations.
I was trusting and it didn’t work out. But that doesn’t mean that people don’t deserve being trusted. It just means that I need to change the type of people that I decide to trust.
While I will be irritated, sad, and sometimes depressed, I realize that it doesn’t have to take over my entire life. Not sure how I was able to reduce the anger I once had. I suppose it is a matter of getting older and getting closer to reaching other goals in my life.
There is no secret to learning how to not be angry. I guess it is a matter of acceptance, not avoidance. What helped me was understanding why I was angry, accepting it, and letting things go. I also understood my triggers (drinking too much, lack of sleep, not eating right, stress).
Another thing is that I think before I talk. But I always express my feelings. I don’t hold things in anymore. If you take the time to actually think about what you’re saying, it comes out clearer.
Well, I haven’t been on this site for almost 3 years. Reading some of these entries really takes me back!
I am almost done with school now. My major is Psychology and I will be graduating in June 2009. I am excited because this will be the first thing I have ever followed through with in my life. My degree is so precious to me. But I plan to continue on with my Masters as well so it’s not over.
The journey is worth it. Anyone just starting who can’t imagine finishing, just keep at it. One day you will wake up like mef and realize how far you have come. It’s a great feeling!
