“Life is like riding a bicycle, in order to keep your balance, you must keep moving.” – Albert Einstein.
Life isn’t always full of sweet and nice things. No matter how hard it sounds, we need to accept that things are not going to happen in the way we all want them to be. And that is why it is important to accept certain truths about life so that you can navigate through it with a lot of experience and wisdom.
The more we mope about the ‘Why’s, the more we will lose our path, succumb to depression and drown ourselves in negativity. The key to happiness and peace is in our own hands and only we are the ones who can make our lives better.
Here are 15 hard-hitting truths about life- which, the earlier you accept, the better it is for you:
1. You Are Dying.
You are aging and time is running out. Someday, you will perish. No matter whatever you spend, everything will be over one day.
2. Everyone Around You Will Die One Day.
The people we love have died and will die because it’s the law of nature. Accept the fact that they have to leave.
3. Nothing Lasts Forever.
This is one of the most important truths about life. Change is the only constant in the world. Be it relationships, your belonging, moments or your social status; it will all end one day.
4. You Can’t Please Everyone.
You can’t make others love you. There will always be more than one person who will hate you and you can’t control them. Stop living your life for people around you. If they are not happy with you, let them be.
5. People Aren’t Interested In Your Life.
Yes, you read it right! People might sympathize with you but they have their own issues to deal with. Nobody cares how hard your life is. So, it’s useless to try and make them believe that your life is harder than theirs.
6. Stop Waiting For Someone To Save You.
Your relationship isn’t your key to happiness. Be your own hero, and invest in yourself. And as far as saving is concerned, only you can save yourself, nobody else.
7. Happiness Is A Choice; Only You Can Choose It.
You either choose to be happy or you don’t. It depends on how you wish to look at life. Tons of money cannot make you happy or even just a cup of coffee is something you might need to feel better.
8. Chasing Happiness Makes You Lose It More.
Happiness is always in acceptance’; accept the ‘now’ as it is. The more to try to be happy, the more you won’t be.
9. Your Money Can’t Buy You Happiness. Stop Running After It.
Wealth can give you luxury but wealth can’t buy your happiness. You might be extremely rich but deep down, you feel sad.
10. You Can Never Be Perfect.
Perfection is a myth. We don’t even know what a perfect thing looks like. So, what’s the whole point in running behind something which nobody has ever seen in their lives?
11. Accept Your Flaws.
We are all flawed and you need to accept it instead of ignoring it or hiding it. You can’t be spotless. You only ruin your mental peace by trying to fix them. Your flaws make you, what you are. Cherish them, acknowledge and accept them
12. All You Will Ever Have Is NOW.
Don’t dwell on the past or the future. Everything is the PRESENT!
Our future is unpredictable. We don’t know what will happen and it’s not completely in our hands either. By dwelling in the past or trying hard to take control of the future, we often tend to lose out on the joys of the present. So, think about the present and live it.
13. Your Life Will Suck. Not Just Once, But A Hundred Times.
It will be full of ups and downs. But never react, and always respond.
14. Stop Blaming Others And Take Responsibility.
Only you should have control over your life. Stop depending on others, and take responsibility and control.
15. Stop Dreaming And Start Working.
Change won’t happen by itself. You are the one who has to usher in the change in your life.
