i’ve learned that true friendship is not something to take for granted. & that being surrounded by negative people will suppress my growth. i’ve learned that some people may not believe in me - based on assumptions about my gender and personality. & i’ve struggled while thrust between two cultures - one which values friendship over everything and another which pushes letting go of past relationship and firmly grasping on to new ones.
i learned that large non-profits and ngo’s are probably not the greatest change agents after experiencing the distress they have prolonged in ethiopia. & i’m left confused as to how one is best able to help relieve pains of poverty.
have you ever had a year where you felt as if you learned almost too much?
