You know what’s hard, sometimes? Understanding you are constantly responsible for your state of mind, and your reactions to what happens in life. That constant awareness can be tiring. The long-term results of working on yourself, however, will be totally worth it.
Another thing that is challenging, is relaxing around people I like, but am not yet familiar with. Perhaps what I need to realize is that the only person judging, and the only person who really matters, is me.
