the impact of various obstacles on your life
I've noticed that when people talk about obstacles, they talk about the superficial and external difficulties that come across their lives. People tend to focus on how they are affected by what others do to them and how this doesn't let them progress to achieve something. Whenever I had a disagreement with someone, I never blamed it on myself. I focused on what that other person was saying or doing that offended me. This made me react in a poor manner that didn't let me manage the situation to fix my problems. Through time and experience, I assimilated that I had to solve my own internal obstacles before focusing on others. The importance of self-eassurance and having emotional control is by far one of the most precious aspect someone can posses. After several conflicts that I've encountered with the different relationships in my life, I've come to realize that putting myself in the shoe of others, listening to what they have to say and letting my selfishness aside helped me control my feelings and gave me a different perspective that allowed me to have the assertiveness and self confidence to solve any type of conflict that I encountered. Realizing this has given me the tools to establish better relationships, becoming more tolerant and opening myself to others.
