Normally we have a nice, lighthearted Text Question of the Day on Friday, but today we got a little deep.

TEXT QUESTION OF DAY:
What’s the hardest lesson you’ve ever learned?

  • That you can love someone more than you ever knew you were capable of loving and you still aren't meant for eachother
  • To value myself and realize I have worth. And to know that I deserve better after years or telling myself I was fine being in last place. I know now to stand up for my own happiness
  • How to live in a world without my Dad. I hear Connie talk about missing her Dad and my heart breaks with her 💔
  • Just like a life, your health can be taken away from you in an instant.
  • You can’t count on anyone but yourself...ever!
  • When everyone else warns you about someone you're seeing romantically and you can't see what everyone else sees until the person you're seeing completely tears you down and you see for yourself what a horrible monster he is.
  • That walking away is not as bad as we convince ourselves that it will be.
  • Not everyone actually cares about you, that care about how much they can take from you without you stepping back and saying no.
  • That the people you once trusted can hurt you the most because they know you best, know your weaknesses
  • You have no control. We want to have control, it doesn't work that way! (I'm a huge believer in the universe having a plan!)
  • Live your life to the fullest. You never know where it goes but you can choose the right path to get there.
  • Text question or the day: blood doesn’t mean family. I haven’t seen my parents in a year, but my boyfriends parents have taken me in and I feel more loved than ever.
  • Learning to love myself.
  • After an 11 year bad marriage. Learning to stand up and walk away and being to love and find me again.
  • The hardest lesson I've ever learned. You can't save them all. Even if it's a baby. You can't save them all and it's so hard. You are never ready for that. Don't blame yourself even though you will.
  • TQOTD:learning to function normally after my mom passed
  • Anything “free” is too expensive 💕. Quote from my mom.. and it’s true
  • Just because you love someone and they love you doesn’t mean they are trustworthy
  • Life is not like the movies. You don't always beat Clubber Lang at the end of Rocky 3.
  • Not knowing about and saving for retirement at a younger age. Sucks being raised by uneducated grandparents .
  • We only get one? ...understand the difference between friends and acquaintances because they are not the same!
  • You can't trust even blood family.
  • Life is too short. Tell your loved ones how much you love them.
  • In the context regarding your job position... When you start to think you are irreplaceable, you will become replaceable
  • That you are much stronger than you think you are.

  • Blood does not mean family.
  • Go with your gut
  • Ppl are a$$holes
  • Not all mothers are capable of unconditional love
  • You cannot change someone with a drinking problem no matter how much you love them. They need to be the ones to change. And it is ok to walk away from them if it is better for you in the long run
  • You can't be happy with someone else until you are happy with yourself

  • To listen and be patient, I can’t control everything

  • Live without my mom
  • Sometimes what you truly believe you want, isn't always what's best. And that can be the hardest pill to swallow...
  • TQOTD...sadly I'm still learning it. Take more time to make big life decisions. When you're young I don't think you put the thought into years down the road and being sure that what you're choosing now is what will make you happy for life.
  • A hard lesson for Me was that strictly just because the color of my skin people would treat me differently. I learned this at five. It has effected me drastically in almost every aspect of my life. It shifted my view of myself and my self worth. Yet the hardest lesson is to come, to learn to love myself for all that I am.
  • The hardest lesson for me was learning that I could not trust my mother to baby sit my kids. She now has guardianship because she lied to the court about everything
  • Be comfortable with being uncomfortable. Never make impulse decisions when upset
  • The hardest lesson ive leard is dealing with addiction
  • The hardest lesson learned for me, was having teenagers with the same issues I had as a teenager (especially my girls). You never really know how much you hurt your parents as a teenager, until you are hurt by your own children. Not in a bad way, though. If gives you a better understanding of sacrifices that have been made. Have a great weekend!!!!!
  • The biggest life lesson I've learned is that sometimes crappy kids and teenagers grow up to just be crappy adults. I used to think that everyone grew out of it and that all adults were good, happy, responsible people
  • The hardest lesson I learned.....people more often than not, lack integrity, and are not always who they portray themselves to be.
  • When I was 21, I went out to the bar with a coworker, who seemed really sweet and cool, her boyfriend and about 6 other of their friends. We had a table, all of us had at least 2 drinks. I went to the bathroom, came back, and EVERYONE was gone. This was weird because the coworker was my ride. The server saw me, gave me the bill, and expected me to pay all of it. No one else paid. The bill was 150.00 roughly, and all the cash I had was 84.00. I gave her that, and went outside to find my ride. They told me to get in. I really had no choice. We went to a different bar. The police found us there after we had been there 15 minutes. Got a police escort back to the previous bar, separately from the coworker and her boyfriend. The cop proceeded to get me to rat them out. I did not. The server recognized all 3 of us and identified me as the only one who tried to pay. The cops through threatening the other two with charges, made them pay the entire bill, and I got all of my money back.
  • The coworker quit about 3 weeks after that incident. I think it was because she was ashamed and realized she had burned a bridge with me. We had a very small office.
  • To not light a firecracker in your hand. It hurts like an SOB when it goes off!!!!
  • Ya can't trust every Fart!!!
  • Don't date girls that are bitches!!!!! They only suck the life out of you when you get older!!!!!! Not Anonymous Kevin.
