This blog post is going to be very different from any post I have written. Typically I am writing how to blog posts, but today will be different and from the heart.
One Hell of a Week
You see, it’s been one hell of a week this week. Many exhausting and draining conversations have happened in my life this week. In fact I am ready to close the week out and chalk it up to one of those weeks that I can be thankful I went through and learned from, even if it seemed like I was going through hell.
There were many lessons learned this week that I thought would be good to share with you.
#1 No one is perfect and we must always be open to forgiving
#2 Everyone is different. We all respond and react to certain situations in different ways and we must always realize that and respect that everyone will have a different view, whether we agree with it or not.
#3 Never have a serious conversation over skype, email, FB messaging, etc…. Always pick up the phone because words on paper have no emotion and the person reading it will insert their own tone into the written words and could easily be construed in a way you were not intending.
#4 Everyone is fighting their own battle, therefore we should never judge a person by their actions.
#5 Never react out of our emotions. Take a step back, sleep on it, process and handle complicated situations with an outside perspective. The worse thing you can do, is react instantly. By doing this you usually end up saying things to the other person you may regret.
#6 FINALLY.….never be afraid to apologize and admit wrong doing even if you have been hurt by the other person too. Sometimes just saying, “I am sorry and I am sorry if I hurt you” will break down the walls so a healthy conversation can take place.
We have all been through battles and only you can explain why you react a certain way to situations that arise. We must always remember that everyone from time to time will experience their own personal hell, but my advice to you is embrace it as a learning experience and grow from it.
I hope you enjoyed this post. I know for myself, writing this has given me some peace and I sincerely hope something I said here resonates with you.
As always, here’s to your success!
