Experience: that most brutal of teachers. But you learn, my God do you learn...
I saw this the other day and it made me smile. It also made me think of a few people who I know this applies to, and that made me smile even more.
I have gotten to the point where I really don't care what anyone thinks of me as long as I know I am a good person, and this I know.
No I'm not the perfect person, I have a lot of flaws and a lot of screw ups. but you live and learn. That's life!
I just have to look into Arvid's eyes and I know that all is good with us. I know he loves me and that's what matters.
When I was younger it bothered me if I thought someone did not like me. I guess as you get older you learn what is important in life and you learn when to walk away from those people that don't matter and from situations that are petty.
Experience is the best teacher and I have had quite a few lessons in life.
What I take from each is what has made me the person I am today.
As someone said,
"A woman's life can really be a succession of lives, each revolving around some emotionally compelling situation or challenge, and each marked off by some intense experience."
Many live their lives full of envy, jealousy, hatred, grudges etc.
I have learnt that life is too precious to waste on this and on these kind of people.
Both Arvid and I are always grateful that we have each other. As he says, "nothing else matters"
All I know is that we have a good life and for us that's all that matters.
Have a good day and never let the pettiness of people drag you down!
Never apologize for being you!
No matter how great or how nice you are, not everybody is going to like you.
