It’s not a secret anymore that life is not all rosy, and what Hollywood tries to sell us is a fallacy. There are myriads of hurdles along the way but we have no choice to go through all of them.
Perhaps the best way to go through life is by knowing that some things are unwritten rules, truths that are universal to all. You can’t live life denying them, because otherwise you’ll be living a lie and the truth is bound to catch up sooner or later.
To live a smooth life, the earlier you accept the following truths the better.
#1 Everyone and Everything that we love and cherish will be lost
Yes, it’s one of the harshest and least desirable truths but we can’t avert our minds from it. Everything with life will someday die, the people you love, your beloved pet and it doesn’t stop there; everything you worked hard to achieve will be lost someday too. The sad thing is there is nothing you can do about it, it’s the journey of life.
Best thing is to value the precious moments you have with yourself and loved ones, mend the broken relationships because you never know how long it's going to last.
#2 Bad things happen to the good people too
It’s a sad thing, and unfair too but if you are good-bad things will happen to you. The good, as well as the bad, live under the same sky. The good die young, and the brave die first. It’s just how things are and as usual, there is not much we can do. We can, however, let them die for a reason.
#3 Life will never be fair
Don’t complain that life is not fair for you, it’s not how it’s supposed to be. Things don’t always go according to our plans and the best people don’t always get the best out of life. The least we could do is enjoy the little life gives us and take on each day with a positive mind.
#4 Don’t expect people to be nice
You might think that by treating people nice, they owe you some level of courtesy. Well, sorry to burst your bubble but there are some rude people out there who’ll ruin your day, treat you like trash irrespective of how nice you treat them. For what’s worth, don’t change them, remain kind because no matter how bad it looks, you’ll meet some nice people too.
#5 We are never going to be perfect
No one’s perfect, and despite our efforts, we can never be. Instead of searching for perfection, look into your weakness and improve yourself so that your life won’t be messed in future.
#6 Change is inevitable
Whether you want it or not, nothing will remain as it is. You might think something to be permanent but the probabilities of it going upside down are always there. So do yourself a favor and quit resisting change, because it’s inevitable.
#7 Wasted time can never be recovered
Wasted time is lost forever. Time always flows and it does forward. Once it’s gone, it can never come back for you. Once you are all grown, you can never become a toddler again. Every second of your life matters so doesn’t waste it.
If you aren’t managing your time, then you better start before it’s too late.
#8 Life won’t always go according to your plans
However much you plan your life, it won’t always go according to your thoughts because life is simply unpredictable. While there is a chance all you planned to go to waste, the best thing is to learn from it, pick up ourselves and move on. It’s not worth crying over what’s already done.
#9 Time’s more precious than money
To live a happy life, money is necessary, we can’t argue with that but what’s more important is time. Managing time efficiently will help you with achieving what your heart desires most. And that’s pure happiness for you.
#10 Don’t try to make everyone happy
The hard fact is no matter how hard you try to please everybody, they’ll always be someone to criticize you. This individual might even go to great lengths and try to stop you from doing what your heart desires.
Luckily, you can do something about it, try to be happy yourself. Those who value you will be happy for you, those who don’t, well, let them be.
