Some of my best character building lessons have required me
to fall on my head (metaphorically speaking).
I've been humbled in ways that still cause me to grimace.
At times, I can be prideful, stubborn, and ignorant (unaware or in denial).
I say this kindness and compassion.
I think it's true for most people.
We get stuck in self-defeating patterns until life gives us
the perfect lesson to wake us up.
