What was a lesson you learned this year that changed you?
The one lesson I have learned this year is that no matter what you do for people or an organization, eventually they will screw you over and make you feel like what you do means nothing. I wish people would see that knowing those you work with and getting along with them is not a bad thing, but a way to keep the peace and make them comfortable. I thought teaching and coaching were for me, but it seems that because I care it makes others uncomfortable. I guess I will have to learn not to care and pretend that no one is important to me or my career, or at least that is what I have to learn to pretend to do.
