Day 85 | Lessons Learned

Prompt: Tell me about some of the most important lessons you have learned from your parents.

Stephanie |   Always make your kids feel wanted and beautiful. Be involved with your kids or they will seek family elsewhere. Always be there for your kids. Kids will hold onto things forever, strive to always have a healthy relationship. Don't favor one child over another, it creates resentment. Be willing to admit fault/mistakes and apologize for them.

Annetta | One important lesson I learned through my parents was to be wise in my choice of husband & not to marry just anyone who came my way. My parents are divorced. I waited many years for my husband (that's what it felt like at the time). In my Russian community, most girls got married by the age of 18 or younger. I got married at 24, I was considered an old maid in some circles. "damaged goods" or the "no one wants you" kind. Let's just say I'm SO happy I waited!!

  1. Glad you took that wait. Others should really do the same. Not only does this give them time to contemplate their choices, but to ensure their own welfare when they go through the business of marriage, with all the prenuptual agreements it is gonna entail. A lot of which shouldn't be taken in stride for mere feeling, because these are the things that will make the most tangible impacts in the long run, especially to their well-being.
