7. You have just 1-2 meaningful friendships in your life.
If you have one person in your life who just gets you, that you can call crying at 4 a.m., know that you are one of those lucky people who has the best kind of friends. It is really hard to come across people who can understand you without you saying much, and if you have people like that in your life, never ever let them go.
Good people and good friends are difficult to come by, and you should value people who stand by you when no one else does. That is the mark of a rock-solid friendship. Always remember it is better to have 2-3 good friends, than a ton of friends who show no loyalty towards you. Quality over quantity, always.
8. You’ve made many mistakes.
Mistakes are inevitable in a life worth living. As long as you learn from them, mistakes are very important. They teach you exactly what you want and who you want to be. Everyone makes mistakes in their lives, and everyone falters at some point.
But that’s okay. As long as you learn from your mistakes, and use the lesson to better yourself, and your life, you are good to go.
9. You feel miserable sometimes.
Maybe it’s because of a breakup, a divorce, losing a job, or life’s just getting you down – whatever it is, the harder you slam a ball into the ground, the higher it bounces back up. Such is life that sometimes it is going to make things difficult for you, but at the same time, it will make you stronger, resilient, more compassionate, appreciative, and smarter.
Life is always going to teach you new things, it is up to you whether you accept it’s lessons and learn.
10. You faced rejections.
Always remember that when one door closes another door always opens. You just have to have faith in yourself, and life’s plans for you. If you open your eyes, you will see the next door that opens is a better door.
Life may be tough to handle sometimes, but it is a beautiful thing to experience. Take the good things that it has to offer, learn from your rejections, work harder, and build the life of your dreams.
11. You did not get to experience your perfect ending.
Some of the best stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about making the best of each moment because we really don’t know what will happen next. Maybe you didn’t get your perfect ending, but you will get something so much better, you never know.
The best thing about life is its unpredictability. So, instead of stressing out constantly about what might happen in the future, focus on your present, enjoy it, and make the most of what you got.
12. You’re not the same person you were a year ago.
So many people never change. They get stuck in their stubborn ways and never progress. Life is all about evolving. What they don’t realize is that life is ever-changing, and change is the only constant. If you don’t change yourself and adapt to change, you will be stuck in the same place forever.
In order to grow, you need to be malleable, and go with the flow of life.
So, the next time you feel that your life is not going great, come back to this piece and realize that you’re doing much better than you think. The secret to having a happy life is not having a perfect life; it is all about being fulfilled, and content with what you have, and what life has to offer you.
