When it comes to life, we all face lots of ups and downs. Sometimes it feels like the whole world is against us and other times it feels like we’re capable of anything we could ever dream of.
Life in itself is full of ugly truths and for some reason, not many people are willing to really talk about those ugly truths. Below I am going to go over some of them in the hopes of showing others that they are not alone. Just because you’re feeling something that no one else wants to admit they’re feeling as well doesn’t mean it’s isolated to you.
For some reason, we as human beings like to keep a lot of things from one another. We are not as willing to share and help one another grow as we should be and it really holds us back. Through talking about these things and letting those younger than us know about them early on we can really benefit humanity as a whole.
Perfection does not exist, and we should not waste our time trying so hard to turn ourselves into something we will never be. We should accept ourselves as we are and try to grow in the ways we truly need to. Even the most successful people in this world are still not perfect.
2. We are not invincible.
We all die someday, and we all go through rough patches. As human beings, we are not invincible. Actually, we are quite fragile.
3. Most people don’t care how hard your life is or what you’re going through.
Most people are not going to care about you or the things you’re going through. Unless you’ve built a proper connection with someone they’re always going to think about themselves over other people. Just because you think you deserve something doesn’t mean you do. Everyone is going through their own bullshit.
The things you do say so much more than the words you use. If you say one thing and do another you’re only going to cause more trouble in the long-run. You should be willing to back up your words and if you’re not things will never play out the way you want them to. The people in your life will pay attention to whether or not you follow through when you claim you will.
5. The thoughts or words of others do not define who you are as a person.
Just because something someone says about you hurts you or upsets you does not mean that it is true. The words of others do not define you. You are the only person who gets to decide who you are as a person.
We should not be wasting time. Time is something we never have enough of and it is always fleeting. Tomorrow is not promised, live each day as if it will be your last because it very well could be.
7. Happiness cannot be found in other people.
While a lot of people think that finding love and settling down will make them happy, it won’t. Happiness can only be found within. If you want to be truly happy you have to cultivate it properly.
