The things I used to like about myself are no longer things that describe me.
So many misunderstandings and innocent mistakes have far-reaching consequences
For me, it was the realization of just how wrong I can be about people's character. I was pulling my hair out for months after my ex cheated because I couldn't reconcile what I believed about her and what she had done - it just didn't match up.
That the purpose of your adult life is to save money so you don't run out of money when you can't work anymore.
No matter how much someone you love is ruining their own life, they are the only person who can do anything to change themselves.
That people tend to judge others based on action, not intent. One out-of-character statement or action can permanently alter others' perception of you.
That I am "that friend". The one people only call when everyone else is busy.
