The landscape of life is ever changing. It brings forth different scenarios that expose us to situations that are sometimes good and sometimes bad. Life is a great teacher which helps us develop different perspectives towards it. These experiences change us daily, but it is super important that we change for being better towards our own selves and the people around us.
Not everyone learns the same lesson even when put in similar circumstances. To understand what different experiences they have gained from their lives we asked our followers, “What is that one lesson, you have learnt in life that you want to share with everyone.”
We received hundreds of responses and have picked up the best 16 lessons that can help anybody be positive and move ahead in life in the worst situations.

“Life is a DIY project. It depends on how you make the best of it.”
“That no matter what kind of people surround you, never ever should one lose their ground and try to be someone you are not. Always refuse to give in to the hard mentality & have a mind (personality) of your own, not for anyone else but for yourself.”
Nicole Florisse Groenen
“That I can take care of myself. I will fight for myself. No matter what happens I will stand up again. I am free …. And I am the only person who will always be with me. So I will be nice to me ☺, I will love me and I will take care of me.”
“If you believe in yourself, you can let the other be free to. Because you are already complete.”
“To live in the present moment, be aware of your thoughts, emotions and feelings. Meditate… you have to train your mind daily, to live a happier life. Set goals and when you achieve them , set more goals , make life meaningful. Ask yourself what’s most important to you, find the top 3 values you appreciate most in life.”
“Come from a place of certainty within yourself, trust yourself, love yourself, healthy narcissism is good so is healthy shame to know your limits. Time is short, Design a life with meaning i.e Develop your God given gifts and share it – Purpose. Think big, start small but act now : )”
“Do not become possessive. The purpose of a relationship is to complement each other, grow together, and achieve your common goals as a couple. At the same time, you must each maintain your individual identity as a human being.”
Nothing is permanent, neither the good times nor the bad one’s.
The only constant in life is change.
Go with the flow, acceptance is the keyword.
To love myself, I use to focus in being the best to others, and really using others to inspire me to live, but after a major heartbreak, and when I felt emptied out, vulnerable and confused by those who were supposed to love me no matter what, I asked myself what was the obstacle in loving me and what took me so long to realize it? I can tell you that now, I am more aware of the power of my thoughts and feelings, and I love myself more than ever before, I hardly rely on external validation to feel like I’m going in the right way, although there are many myths I still have to decipher everyday
