The hardest thing I have ever had to learn is probably patience, or forgiveness.

I am still learning that everything is not my fault  and that I can't fix everything. I have a guilt complex it causes much undue anxiety. I worry about everything, so much so sometimes that I can't sleep and it effects my days, sometimes I feel like I am overcoming it, others I feel like it has me. I had my favorite quote tattooed discreetly on my right wrist, (I tend to hold it when I am worrying) "Guilt is like a sack of bricks, all you have to do is set it down" Worry, fear, anxiety, they are all included in that, I have to learn to let it go. I ask myself at night sometimes, "can I fix this now?" If not then I try to convince myself that sleep will give me a better head for it tomorrow. When my Mom died I blamed myself from the age of 11 to 17 I was her nurse, after she died I felt for years like it was all my fault, if I had taken better care of her she wouldn't have died, watched her more closely etc. I took care of my little brother (who called me MamaCass eventually) until I left for the Army, because I felt that if I could steer him through, maybe my Mom's death wouldn't hurt him as bad, maybe I could undo some of the stuff I had messed up. My motivations were wrong and all of things my brother did wrong I blamed on myself too. Guilt is a powerful drug, I became a medic later on try to "fix" people, obviously it wasn't for me. I had to leave my chosen feel due to my own injuries. I still struggle with it but it will never get the best of me again!

Learning what a lis franc fracture is the hard way.  learning that a grounded lift chain can be so hot that it feels like ice as it burns the skin off your hand. Learning that life does not always work out like you planned it. Learning that you should listen to your dad when he tells you should try harder in school before it's to late. Learning that most companies don't hire for the next position  from inside the company. Lol.  doing what is right has it's own rewards. Pushing yourself to do something you don't want to do will help you in the future when life gets hard. The biggest thing is that God has my back when no one else does, that is the hardest thing to do. Is to give up all my lack of trust and trust that he will do what he has given his word to do. Oh! An geometry. Good thing there are computer programs for it now.:)

In life, so far, the hardest thing for me to learn was to say no.  I'm a people pleaser by nature and this was very difficult to learn to do.  Once I did, I could then look back and see how on many occasions, I was being used.  In school - Geometry

For me it was growing up learning that when you get to a certain age you have to take things more serious and careful, such as the end of school you got to start looking for a job getting a career starting your own life this is where your goals start to begin and I had to get that in my head I can't run a muck anymore I have to act mature and put my head down and what not I don't know if this was the kind of answer you were looking for but that honestly was the hardest thing I had to learn. Good question.
