I learned a lot about myself this year. All of them are listed below.
That I am stronger than I thought: Seriously if I got into a fight with someone who was like me a year ago I could totally kick their ass. I never knew I had it in me.
There is someone out there that understands what I'm going through: All I have to say is God Bless my my brother and sister in law. They didn't have to let me move in with them. But they did. And now I can't imagine what my life would be like without them. They are saints.
My opinion counts for something: I spent all of my life being told that my opinion didn't matter. I let a lot of people walk all over me. It's not something I recommend anyone do. It's not fun.
That I can pretty understanding when I want to be: I've always known that. But my patience got tested a lot this year.
There are people out there that depend on me: I've never had that kind of responsibility. My nieces and nephews have shown me what unconditional love really is. They've also shown me that I am not as uptight as people have told me I am. Abby, Hunter, Kristoper, Jackson, Eric, Brian, and Jessica have been my saving grace this year. I don't know if I could have gotten through any of it without them. It sounds strange, I know. But it's true.
