Once you learn to accept these harsh realities of life you will be much stronger.
You thought life is going to be easy. Didn’t you? As a child, all you wanted to do was to grow up and now you are a grown-up. Is this what you thought life would be like?
Life is tough but the thing is that it makes us tougher. We are given a set of problems to solve because the universe believes that we have the capacity to deal with them. It is not like the universe doesn’t care about you and that is why it is making your life tough or something.
Everyone’s life is hard, so just suck it up, buttercup!
1) Fix Yourself:
Life hurts us. People hurt us. Circumstances hurt us. We lead a life where we are broken inside but we have to pretend to be all together on the outside.
The problem is that we keep waiting for someone to heal us. We keep thinking that someone will suddenly come in our lives and everything will be better and we will be healed.
As much as this thought is comforting to think about, the reality is that this isn’t true. You gotta heal yourself. You have to pick yourself up when you fall. You are all you have. Have faith in yourself because when it is war time, you are alone.
2) Stop thinking about perfect:
We all have a notion of our life and that notion always makes us feel that we should have everything perfect and we should be perfect all the time.
This is life, not a Hollywood movie where everything has to look pretty and perfect. Life is not going to be perfect all the times. Yes, you can and you should aim at perfection. But, it is always difficult to be perfect.
So, make your peace with what you are and what you have. That’s mostly the first step towards moving towards perfection.
Accept yourself and your surroundings and then aim for the perfect. Even if you don’t get the moon, honey, you will land up in stars and stars are just as beautiful.
3) You will always fail:
Not like we want to sound like total naysayers, but the thing is that not all your endeavors are going to be a success all the time.
There will surely be times when you will fail and your life will seem to fall apart and you will face problems that you didn’t even know exist. But that’s the beauty of life.
Failure is present because it is supposed to teach us and make us stronger. Failure is pertinent for success, as much as this sounds like a paradox. So don’t be afraid to fail. Fail and try to look at things in a positive way. Ultimately, you will succeed.
4) Don’t think you can change the past:
You don’t have any control over the past. So don’t let it have any control over you. The past is gone and you cannot change it no matter how much you think about it.
You may enjoy being the victim sometimes but it is not going to help you. It is only going to make you look weak and vulnerable.
To be stronger, you have to get over the past and not think of it all the time. Live in the present and live in the now while thinking about what you have to do in the future. The past is the lost territory.
5) There might be no tomorrow:
Your parents must have surely said it to you at some time in your life. Sometimes and for some people, there might be no tomorrow.
