The First Time I… Write a post about the first time you did something. What is it? What was it like? What did you learn from it?
The first time is always scary. The first day of school, the first time you go to the doctor, the first day of a new job, the first time you tell someone about your condition, the first day of treatment….the list goes on. But because it’s scary, we always remember, and it’s from these memories that we learn and grow. We learn that maybe that scary thing wasn’t so bad, or if it was, we find new ways to overcome that fear.
Reflecting on what you learned not only helps you grow, but it also helps others as they go through similar experiences, be it in your condition or in other aspects of your life. Today, write about the first time you did something, anything, and how it made you feel.
How did you feel beforehand (nervous, excited, anxious), during, and after? What did you learn? Was the first time the last time too? Why or why not?
