Ten Things I Know To Be True

In my last week here at the folk high school, we are doing a lot of reflecting. There’s a lot of tears, a lot of anxiety about the future… it’s a lot.

On Friday, as part of a warm up for our reflection exercise, a great teacher told us to just write down ten things we knew to be true. It didn’t have to be groundbreaking, life-changing, earth-altering… just our truths. Right now.

Here are mine.

  1. The rain will always clear away
  2. I can’t always be 100%, all the time
  3. I’m still as heartbroken as they come
  4. Friendship comes in many different forms
  5. Exhaustion leads to emotional mistakes
  6. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day
  7. Eyes are the window to the soul, and most of the time there is triple glazing
  8. Apathy isn’t always ignorance. Ignorance isn’t always apathy
  9. Coffee sometimes tastes like tar
  10. I’m afraid to ask for help
