13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do

13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do by Amy Morin, LCSW. She took her life experiences and turned them into a list that eventually became a book.

I'm also good about letting the past go. I find it easy to be happy about the success of others and don't think the world owes me anything. I'm satisfied with progress instead of needing immediate results.

I'm not as good at embracing change and I'm pretty risk adverse.

I recently got a new roof. There were a couple of extra packages of shingles, so I was going to store them in my crawl space. Based on my experience just moving the shingles around to the side of the house, I never, ever want to mess with one of those roofers that can climb up a ladder with shingles slung over his shoulder.
