What I Learnt About Myself This Year | Blogmas | Day 21



I thought I’d do a little look back on what I’ve learnt about myself this year. It’s nice to a update each year and look back. I done one last year, and was lovely to see how much I’ve changed. I hope you enjoy!


I’ve found out this year truly who my real friends are. Some I was surprised to walk out my life the way they did, but others have consistently stuck by my side and I am so grateful. This year has also been a really tough year for me, maybe one of the worst I’ve had a long time, but everyone has pulled together around me, and I honestly don’t deserve the group of friends I have at times, they are amazing! ย I’ve even made some new friends along the way, as have went to a lot more events where I can make more friends, and spoke more at my work place, which has lead me to making friends I never imagined having! I may be lonely at times as most of my best friends live away, but when we get together, it’s like nothing has changed! And that is true friendship.



I am still with my boyfriend, and we are going into our 3rd year of being together.. crazy! We’ve definitely tested our relationship this year, and moved in together in July. I can’t believe how fast it has came around, and I am so proud of our little home together. Living with a partner can either make you or break you, but this has definitely made us. I am so glad we took that jump and got our first place together.



I have definitely this year became a stronger person, and speaking up more if I have a problem. I always used to be afraid of what other’s might say, but I’ve learnt to be more honest, but not that honest I hurt someones feelings. You have to stick up for yourself at times, and this year I definitely have got better at doing that.

Also, I have slowly.. yes slowly, stopped caring about what people think of me. If someone doesn’t like me, that’s fine, but I’m not ignoring you, I’ll treat you like I would any other person. You may have a set judgement on me, but I’ll still be nice to you.



I used to keep my blogging quiet and to a complete minimum of who knew. This year I have spoke up about blogging, made a Facebook page and invited friends and family to ‘like’ย it. I also told my family. It’s one of those things you aren’t sure how your family will react, will they be proud or will they find it stupid. Luckily, my parents are proud and might be my biggest my fans. I’ve told people at work, encouraged people to start their own. The blogging community is a wonderful place, and I’ve met so many wonderful people! I’ve gained a following on my social media accounts which I never knew I could even reach, and now tell anyone I see that I blog, and a lot of people have questions, as they are interested in why I started.


I have definitely this year became a person that is more confident, and happier in their own skin. Yes, I would love to change a few things, but who knows, next year I could be writing my 2017 post and achieved everything I’ve dreamed of achieving!


How have you changed this year? Leave me a comment below!
