As you mature, the more you realize these 12 things:
1: No one has it all together. 2: Trusting your gut the first time is usually the best option. 3: The world is more gray than black and white. 4: You can’t control other people. 5: Holding grudges is not the best use of your time. 6: Being honest could save you a lot of time. 7: Childhood, although short, was very impactful. 8: Life is too short to stay in unhealthy relationships. 9: People tell you exactly who they are and it’s your job to listen. 10: Winning an argument is not as important as finding a solution. 11: Having a support system improves your mood and quality of life. 12: Everything and everyone is not worth your energy.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. I have heard enough of LOVE ABOVE MONEY or similar bullshits very often. Most people prefer not talking about MONEY as if it’s a taboo. On the other hand, i love it when someone says “I LOVE MONEY & I LOVE MAKING MONEY. ALL MY DEMANDS ARE FROM MYSELF”. First learn about it, then implement it. Investment is a sexy thing.)
I know people who graduated college at 21, and didn’t get a salary job until they were 27. I know people who graduated at 25 and already had a salary job. I know people who have children and are single. I know people who are married and had to wait 8-10 years to be parents. I know people who are in a relationship and love someone else. I know people who love each other and aren’t together. There are people waiting to love and be loved. My point is, everything in life happens according to our time, our clock. You may look at your friends and some may seem to be ahead or behind you, but they’re not, they’re living according to the pace of their clock, so be patient.
You’re not falling behind, it’s just not your time. (Not my words.)
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. I shared it just because i like this one. Very few will understand where this song is heading.)
Look around you. How many people do you think are settling? Probably a hell of a lot. People settle into okay relationships, okay jobs, okay friends, and an okay life. Why? Because okay is comfortable. Okay pays the bills, and provides a warm bed at night. Some people are fine with okay, and guess what? That’s okay. But okay is not thrilling, it isn’t passion, it’s not life changing or unforgettable. Okay is not the reason you risk absolutely everything you’ve got for the smallest chance that something absolutely amazing could happen. Okay isn’t fun.
You have this one life. How do you wanna spend it? Apologizing? Regretting? Questioning? Hating yourself? Running after people who don’t care for you? Be brave to say NO to this OKAY. Believe in yourself. Do what feels good. You have this one life. Make yourself proud.
How many of you struggle to say NO? If you’re one like that, you probably have the tendency to want to make other people happy even at your own expense. For most of us, saying NO is a real challenge. We humans are naturally caring. Our personality often makes us feel like it’s our job to take care of other people’s needs and saying NO can feel like a personal failure. In such moment, we are more than happy to make sacrifices for others. However once our energy drains with a sense of overwhelm, they lead us to regret.
First prioritize self care before thinking about other person’s wellbeing or pain. Keep things simple & real. Life is fun, let it be.
Everybody talks about “turning your hobby/passion into your work is fun”, but nobody talks about these hobbies/passion require a lot lot lot of efforts till you fine-tune them into a career/job. If you want to be a youtuber/influencer/musician/architect/engineer/fashion designer or whatever for that matter, you can be that which is totally fine. But ask yourself whether you want that for the right reasons!?!
Everything is a time consuming long long learning process. If you aren’t ready for the learning process to live your passion, then you aren’t made for it. Everything grows over time. If you want something, pick the one you actually can. Then you have to pour hours and hours of determined effort into it. If that’s fun to you, i hope & wish that turns into your rare real success story.
Stop taking things personally. We all are collateral damage to somebody else’s bad decision. You can apply it to all scenarios of life related to love, job, money or family. Take a chill. Don’t be too sensitive. No-one is mean to you. You are incredibly amazing as a true you.
The nature of NATURE is, it makes you older & wiser every next day. Wiser is welcome, older naaah.
What you can do is, work comfortably on your studies/job/business to make some money, join a gym or do little workout for that body/booty, eat food for your body and tongue both, follow your TRUTH to be confident & trustworthy, you have enough tools to reverse ageing & be young forever.
