I Might Be Wrong (Short Hitter #32)

A couple of weekends ago, I got to corner one of my fighters alongside someone that I haven’t always gotten along with. It was a very humbling experience. I witnessed a side of this person that I was not aware of, and it really changed the way I thought about him. I had to realize that my judgment was wrong and that my opinion had to change. It’s only when we recognize that we are wrong about something that we can then improve. Have an open mind and grow with it.

Let People In

Last week I shared that I haven’t been doing so well lately. First of all, I really appreciate the supportive messages that I have gotten from all of you. It means a lot to me. I want to talk about what it means for me to struggle and some ways that I take action to improve the situation. The biggest action is to let people in. It’s common for people to become isolated during hard times, but it’s important to keep yourself surrounded by those you trust.
