If you had to name three things you need to learn and three things you need to “unlearn” what would they be?
To truly observe my children
To breathe through anger
To protect my home/self balance so I don’t lose my identity in my job as a stay at home mother
Being paralyzed when filled with anger
Completely retreating from people who are difficult to get along with
Replaying cold-hearted words from my mother over and over again in my head
I need to learn to be happy in the moment, learn to let the small things go, and to always speak up for the things that make me happy in life. I need to unlearn procrastination, self inflicted stress and letting go of grudges. I will strive to be a better person this High Holy Days.
i need to “unlearn” self pity, lethargy and procrastination. I would like to “learn” spontaneity, contentment and perseverance. Helping me in these goals is learning about unsung heroes of the Jewish people.
I need to learn to let arguments go, I need to learn to be slower to anger, I need to learn to be tolerant and hopeful even when it’s most challenging to do so. I need to unlearn my preconceptions, bad habits and my tendency to bitterness.
Three things I need to learn are: strength to control my passions, patience in my life, and confidence in decisions I make. Three things I need to unlearn are clinging to my daughter, sarcasm with my students, and stubbornness.
