Sometimes we face difficult decisions or experience challenging situations in life. At times we become inanimate as we search for meaning to negative events, people and their actions, and even our own life’s purpose. Below are 10 of 100 Facts of life that might help you to navigate through life’s everyday problems.
You need to be happy with who you are
Accepting yourself is one major key to survival in our contemporary society. In every stage of life you will come across groups that have created their own norms and practices before hand and you have to decide how these things fit into your life. Strong self worth and confidence will carry you through tough times but in order to build the qualities needed you have to be happy with who you are. Accept yourself and trust yourself, be grateful for your talents and work on any limitations that you believe is hindering you from becoming a better person.
You can only control yourself
Things will occur in life that will make you unhappy, Sometimes we wish for other people to change, sometimes we wish for our circumstances to change. keep in mind that you can really only change yourself in most situations. Try to change your way of thinking instead of trying to change something external. Try to look at the positive side of things not matter how small it is, and go from there.
It's OK to be wrong
A lot of people live life with the idea that they always have to be right, and if they aren’t right then they are almost right. Perfection is almost always unattainable. I think we should start looking at being wrong as a tool as opposed to a death sentence. Being wrong provides room for growth, accept it and be open to the lesson that being wrong provides then get used to that process.
Make the best of what you get
How many times have you obsessed about something that you thought you needed, didn’t get it, then forgot that you even wanted it. Social media is now a new amplifier for our wants that presents themselves as needs because we seem to think everyone is living a better life than we are. If at first you don’t achieve your goal then try again - but never forget about what you have now and remember to be thankful for it because it has brought you this far. “don’t be upset if you don’t get exactly what you want, what you need is always better and most times that is what you get” -Lemoosh
What "other people think"
What other people assume about you and your personality does not concern you, its literally none of your business. Try to refrain from trying to find out how random people feel about you, what matters the most is how you feel about yourself. What most people don’t realize is that how people feel about you is only a reflection of that person and not a accurate depiction of you especially if they haven’t had the pleasure of getting to know you. No one’s perception of you will be how you perceive yourself. Once you understand and accept yourself, the opinion of others will seem insignificant.
Don’t be afraid, say what is needed when it is necessary, pick your battles but only after you have collected your facts; nothing brings more regret than having an opportunity to make a difference and refusing to do so.
Trust your gut
There will be times when you will feel strongly about not wanting to do something or about wanting to do something specific with no good reason. Trust your gut, sometimes your mind has picked up on something so small that you wouldn’t understand its reasoning until after time. Plus your confidence will grow rapidly once you start trusting yourself.
Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself
Letting go of hurt is hard, especially if you don’t believe the source of the hurt deserves forgiveness. In order to live freely you must incorporate forgiveness into your routine. Contrary to popular beliefs forgiveness is more for you to move forward and less about the individual being forgiven.
You cannot force anyone to respect you, and you shouldn’t have to. People may not respect you but they will respect hard work, so work harder and worry less.
Change is inevitable, some of the changes that happen in life will be unexpected and unwanted BUT you have to figure out how to embrace change in your own way. When ever change comes our way we tend to resist and this usually results in a waste of time. Its ok to be annoyed by change but your best chance of success in anything is to embrace change and learning how make it beneficial to you.
