Still Growing... Still Learning

Yes, I am almost 40 years old but I believe that I still have a lot of growing up to do. I'm getting somewhere but there's still a lot more that I need to do. I am not saying that I am childish or immature or anything like that, but I do know that I need to learn more.

I am blindly going and I bump and hit myself.. hard at times.. and I get bruised and hurt... So yea... I need better eyes to see... a clearer vision of where I'm headed so bumps and bruises can be avoided...

My temper still comes in as the biggest challenge of all, I am still having to exert a ton of effort to control it and sometimes I am not on the winning end and yes, I end up hurting people I love the most. Controlling my temper has been the bane of my emotional life for as long as I can remember. Then I can say envy.. wanting stuff I don't have and feeling a bit of nudge when I see people have 'em.

But as I said, I am still learning and still growing, hopefully there will come a time when I can smile and be totally 100% happy with seeing people enjoy their belongings... perhaps when I do, I can begin to enjoy what I have too.. fully... completely.

Every day is a learning experience. I used to have a fierce temper. I don't know how I learned to curb it, but it is probably because I lost my son from a motorcycle accident. It taught me what was important and what was not I guess.

quickchai, as far as I'm concerned we never stop growing and never stop learning. You're never too old to learn things, and learning from our mistakes is beneficial. Be careful, too, because envy can be very damaging. Will we ever be at a point in life where we've learned all we can? Most certainly not. Good luck to you with your life lessons, your emotions, and all you are going through.
