We all make mistakes in everything we do. That’s part of learning. Over the next few weeks, I’m going to challenge you to blog about some of the mistakes you’ve made, and the lessons you learned and how these mistakes changed your life.
As usual, these blog challenges are very specific, encouraging you to dig into your head and spirit to find interesting ways of sharing who you are and what you do with your blog readers. Finding a way to incorporate them into your blog’s purpose is part of the challenge.
The first in this series of life mistake challenges is:
Blog about the worst mistake you made in a relationship.
Love gone wrong is the source of stories and songs throughout history. We all screw up when it comes to our interpersonal relationships – and professional ones. We’ve all done it. We’ve all done it the same, even though we feel like it is a unique and very personal and private event – it’s normal. It’s what you learn that makes you better at relationships in the future.
One of the earliest lessons I learned in relationships is that I thought the relationship was all about me. My needs. My wants. My life. The world revolved around ME. Trust me, I’m not interesting enough to have much of anything revolve around me, especially the whole world, and it took some hurting to understand that a relationship is about you and us, not me. A little me, but not a planet’s worth of me. The magic in a relationship is when the other person feels the same way. Their perspective of the relationship is that it isn’t about them, it’s about me.
There is a lot of good and bad that happens in a relationships, so reach down into your life’s baggage and share a story of the worst mistake you’ve made in a relationship – and the lessons you learned and how you improved the qualities of your relationships after the wounds healed.
These blogging challenges are published weekly and are an attempt to kick your blogging ass. They serve to challenge your thinking and efforts in blogging and blog writing. To participate, start challenging yourself now. Today. Go for it.
