Happy Friday Everyone!!!

Growing Pains

As an Administrative Assistant, I have a to-do list that feels like it is miles long at times. Sometimes, I feel like I am getting pulled in a million different directions and may even lose my way. I find myself constantly outside of my comfort zone, learning, trying, and doing completely new things. It can get stressful at times. When I start to feel overwhelmed and out of my element, I think about when I was younger and I would get growing pains. There are always growing pains, no matter what kind of growth it is. Nothing comes easy that is worth the fight.

Everyone faces their own battles and many of us fight to conceal it from others. I know when I’m having difficulty, I feel like it would be a burden to share it with other people. Honestly, sometimes it is for them. I have had times where I lost friends over our different battles, because of lack of understanding or acceptance. I have my moments where I just cannot understand why someone doesn’t see the bigger picture, the important details, or past the moment they are in. I experience these situations as well, I am not above it. However, it is not my place to determine how they fit in the world or how they experience it.

It is my duty to help them if I am needed and accept them as they are, which many times includes accepting that they don’t want help. It is important to remember and acknowledge that everyone is different and that is what makes each one of us amazing.
