(January 21, Thursday)
After reuniting myself with those who I dearly love, I noticed that I felt a little empty. I couldn’t change my attitude about the situation and I felt regret. It was only until after I went back to my room that I took the time to realize I didn’t need to change my entire character to find approval and appreciation.
Your friends will love you for who you are, even if you make a regrettable mistake. My first mistake was setting expectations that I made my mind believe were coming true. Even though I told myself I was going in without high expectations, I unconsciously lied to myself.
So to summarize, I will not change who I am to receive better results. I have done just fine without doing so. Therefore, I must leave the past behind me and carry on.
