Everyone hits their wall. I mean this in a rhetorical emotional sense (unless you really hit a wall). This emotional wall is your safety zone. As you know it’s important to go out of your comfort zone because that’s how you learn. It’s important to make sure you’re in a safe space so your learning is good. It’s also really important to communicate. I’ve learned a lot this month, because for the last 20 days (it’ll be 20 tomorrow) I’ve been staying at Michigan State University, for a COE program (I want to be a teacher lol). The experience has been great as a whole, but I’ve learned a lot about myself and how I handle everything. I’ll admit I struggled with it. It’s harder to adjust to being with a group of people for so long. The first two weeks went smooth, but as time goes on there’s been various issues with communication that have affected our group. I think that this just reflects on how important communication is, especially in a group effort. Also I’ve learned that it’s important to stand up for your beliefs, no matter how it looks. Another thing I learned was it’s okay to not get stuff right the first time, because that’s what the second time is for, and they always say the third times the charm. It’s okay to make mistakes. It’s okay to be tired and get to that wall emotionally. When I hit the wall, and was just like I don’t know what to do, I realized that I’ve been surrounded by an extremely supportive group of people, who really care about me (and I care about them as well). It’s great to have a support system, especially when you’re away from home. I called this post tired because I was planning to talk about how change is okay and that sometimes you just get tired (it’s part of hitting the wall). Understand that sometimes things get hard and it’s okay sometimes to not be okay. That was the hardest thing for me to get. I just always thought everything has to be great, but sometimes it gets bad before it gets better. It takes effort and time and being uncomfortable in order for you to grow. Remember how it felt to grow as a child. It was awkward and you made a lot of mistakes (when my feet grew I stepped on my mom’s feet all the time). It’s going to be fine. I wish you all the best. Get some rest.
