I’ve been consumed by my own thoughts and petty worries that I’ve neglected to notice that I’ve done harm, not only to myself, but to the loved ones I surround myself with. That realization was bought to me tonight in a way that really shook me to my core. I’m going to take this time to really look inwards and reflect on the person I want to be and the person I actually am. What I saw and what I heard is not what I strive to be. In order for me to grow and learn, to become a better friend, brother, and son, I must first pause and examine myself deeply. I’m learning as I go.
