Lessons in Life I’ve learnt so far
So I’ve only been on this world for 26 years and, like many, I’ve had many ups and downs and during the times when you feel like you’re on top of the world or down in the dumps I feel that is when you have the clarity to decide who you want to be and to learn from your decisions.
The first lesson I’ve come to realies is to Trust your Instincts. If something doesn’t feel right there is usually a reason. A few years ago I moved to a different city and the first night I spent there I knew it wasn’t for me. I tried to like it and convince myself it was were I wanted to be but in the end it all fell apart and I ended up exactly were I started.
This brings me onto my next lesson which is Don’t try to force yourself to like something. This can relate to many things whether it’s guys, a job or even a T.V. programme. No matter how hard I try I just can’t get into stranger things – I feel like I’m the only one.
Another lesson is to Live for the right now. In my late teens and early twenties I was such a nervous/anxious person. I wouldn’t do things out of fear in case something awful happened. However slowly through time I’ve realised that these experiences won’t wait for me to be ready, I need to just jump and live in the moment. Like in my other post ‘Feel the fear and do it anyway’.
Don’t hold on to anger is the next one. I wasn’t too sure whether to include this one as I’m not an angry person but I do sometimes hold on to grudges. I’ve learnt that doing that doesn’t achieve anything. I think that to forgive is much more powerful than holding resentment. It isn’t healthy for you mentally or physically and it interferes with your happiness.
And finally be kind to one another. Everybody is going through something whether they choose to say or not. Think if people were kinder and took the time to get to know each other instead of judging the world would be a much lovelier place.
