Lessons Learned

Every mistake I’ve made has taught me a lesson. Some I repeated many times and some helped me grow. I thought that I would never heal from things that broke me, but I did, and after that, I learned from them.

I’ve learned things the hard way. Not because I wanted to, but because of the choices I made. Sometimes I had no other choice, sometimes it was all I knew how to do.

With every choice, good or bad, came a consequence. Some consequences still affect my life today. Even when I’m trying to do the right thing, they come up biting me in the butt.

I’m not complaining though. I know that everyone makes mistakes, some bigger than others, but we’re all human and it happens.
