10 Lessons I have Learned in Life so Far

There are so many lessons one may learn in their lives. The lessons I am going to talk about in my post are ones that have had a great impact on my life the most. These lessons have helped to make me the person I am today.

  1. You are not going to make everyone happy. People may have some high expectations for you. For example, someone may get mad at you because you cannot make it to their wedding (for whatever reason). Things happen. It is not necessarily your fault. People take things way to personally. Do you and don’t let someone else dictate your decisions or how you feel.
  2. Everyone deserves a second chance. No, this does not mean you have to. But things happen and people make mistakes. Only one person is perfect, God. Whether this be a friendship or relationship, I think they deserve a second chance (depending on why it didn’t work in the first place, of course.)
  3. If you do not love yourself, you cannot fully love another person. I used to not love myself at all for many reasons, but the past few years I found my worth. I am able to fully love my daughter, husband, family, and friends. If you love yourself, others will too.
  4. Be patient. Things will happen for you when they are meant to be. Do not rush things. God has a plan, better than our own.
  5. Feeling anxious at some point is okay. Feeling anxiety about something or around someone is completely normal. We all feel it at one point in life, whether some want to admit it or not. Anxiety is a real thing to deal with and it can be difficult to deal with. Sometimes there is no reason behind your anxiety and sometimes there is. God is always with you.
  6. Let go. I have had a hard time letting go of people and worldly things, but I quickly learned that it made things worse for me by holding on. I have gotten rid of many toxic friendships and opportunities. I had a job that did not make me happy being there, so I winded up leaving. Let it go!
  7. Do not apologize for everything. I struggle with this myself. It is apart of anxiety for me. You do not need to apologize for everything you do or say. Most things, you do not even need to be sorry for. It’s okay.
  8. Always communicate. It is always best to communicate with your significant other, family, friends, coworkers, etc. Communicating in person is best, in my opinion. Things can get so mixed up over the phone or text.
  9. Stop comparing yourself to others. I used to do this so much in the past. Everyone is different and unique. No body or life is the same. Being different is a good thing.
  10. Do nice things for people. You never know what someone is going through in life. You doing something nice for them, whether paying for their coffee or groceries, can make a big difference. You never know the impact you are leaving on people.
