Each day we learn life lessons. We learn from mistakes we learn so much but then one simple mistake can throw everything away.
Today I learnt that we all need to listen to each other more. Listen to another person’s side of the story. Instead of assuming and blaming someone for something that you don’t know the full story of. Often we hold that one mistake someone made over their heads. Because of that one mistake, you are constantly penalized even when you weren’t in the wrong.
There’s also a time when it’s best to keep your side of the story because the truth will come out one way or another. At that moment yes it may hurt, you may feel down, and you want to be heard. Remember even silence has a story to tell, you just have to listen. It is almost true wisdom’s best reply. Yes, you don’t want your name to be dragged in the mud but sometimes that’s what’s best at that moment.
Lessons In Life
Sometimes when we do find out the truth it may be too late or it will be harder to fix what’s broken. My advice to you and myself is we all need to listen more instead of reacting, judging and holding past situations against each other. No, it won’t be easy, but if you try daily you can reach to that point.
Be man and woman enough to apologize when you’re wrong. Talk through disagreements and be civil about it. Everyone’s opinion differs so sometimes you just have to agree to disagree. As long as you work through the knots whether it is a relationship, friendship or family that’s what’s important.
We face obstacles in our lives and learn life lessons to make us stronger. To help us improve and be better versions of ourselves. Growth is a process; it won’t be smooth sailing, but in the end, it is worth it.
