Life is hard, okay? It’s a freaking rollercoaster ride on the highest and scariest rails you’ve ever seen. You don’t know its next move, you don’t know whether it’ll go right or left, and it seems like the minute you’re up in the sky, you’re getting knocked down again.
Everyone went through the difficulties life served us and managed to survive the hardship. However, there will be times when life will push you to the limits and make you feel hopeless.
When things start to take some nasty course of their own, you shouldn’t allow yourself to back down to them. The truth is, most of the time you can’t control everything that happens to you, but the one thing you can do is – STAND UP for yourself and fight back.
Once you acknowledge that there will always be things out of your control, you can easily get yourself together and start living.
These are 17 brutal truths about the life you no one wants to admit:
1. Your life will eventually come to end
As much as it sounds perfect, we are not invincible. It’s not called a circle of life for nothing. We’re made of flesh and blood and life, as it is after a long time, will lead us to an end. Stop wasting your days and fully embrace the present moment.
2. …And we’ll all die
By accepting this you realize that the same goes for everyone else you know. So, hug your close ones and make sure to tell them every day just how much you love them.
3. Money won’t make you happy
Yes, money is indeed very relevant to our existence. But won’t buy you happiness. Life is about embracing and living it to the fullest. Stop spending money in order to compensate for the things you don’t have.
4. You won’t be able to make everyone happy. Nor should you try it.
Don’t even try doing that. Take care of yourself and your loved ones before your time runs out. The rest will take a course of its own. You don’t owe anyone anything.
5. Talent fades if you let it
If you have a God-given ability in a certain area, hold on to it and learn all the possible ways you can enhance and promote it. Don’t ever let it go to waste!
6. No one cares how hard your life is. STOP whining!
You know what? Life is hard for all of us. Everyone is facing hardship and goes through some difficult times. But it’s life. And life was never supposed to be easy. If you are not satisfied with where are you going, change something. But don’t go complaining if you are not planning to do something about it.
7. Search for a deeper meaning, no matter what you do
Life is a miraculous journey that takes us on various adventures. Be more curious, explore them and ask questions about everything. Whatever you do, always search for the deeper meaning of things. Take out of life as much as possible while you’re here.
8. Time is the most precious thing in your life. Don’t waste it for nothing!
It passes so quickly, you won’t even feel it. And after a while, you just realize that you haven’t had enough time to do everything you’ve ever dreamed of. Let’s avoid waking one day and regretting the things we haven’t achieved. Work hard and always do your best!
9. Share your wisdom with people
If you know something that could be valuable to other people, don’t hesitate to share it. Don’t ever let EGO get in your way. After all, remember: Treat others the way you want to be treated!
10. NOW is all we have
Leave the past and stop chasing the future. You’re not powerful to change it anyway. Instead, focus on your actual state and all the things you could do at the present time. Most of all, enjoy it. One thing we can be certain of is NOW.
11. Cherish and nurture your relationships with the ones you love
If you want something to grow, you need to nurture it. Cultivate the relationships with the ones you love. Keep the real ones and show them how much they mean to you. You do what needs to be done. The rest is not up to you.
12. Don’t try to make everything perfect. It will kill you.
Pointing out flaws and beating yourself up will only waste your life. Instead of trying to make everything perfect, accept the fact that it’s not and move on. When you put it like that, you’ll see that flaws aren’t bad at all. They’re actually the best part.
13. Only you are responsible for your actions
No one will ever be responsible for the things that happen to you! Get out there and start living your life.
14. Searching for happiness prevents you from finding it
Stop chasing it and you’ll feel the minute it approaches you. Start by focusing more on the present time and less on the future.
15. Thinking versus doing is not the same
Daydreaming is nice, but if it ends up with you doing nothing, success will be nowhere close to you. There’s a huge difference between doing and thinking. So, you better get a hold of your self and start doing the things you’ve been thinking about.
16. Everything changes
Another thing we can be certain of – Everything is relative. One thing ends, another begins. Changes are inevitable for our physical and mental growth. Don’t be afraid to accept it. Regardless of how scary changes might look, you’ll never know what will bring you. And that’s the beauty of it.
17. Failure is the road to success
It is an unavoidable part of our lives. Don’t let it discourage you. Disappointments are here to give us the most valuable lessons in life. Let failures be even a bigger motivation as you make the steps to your achieved goal!
