Remember when you were a child?. Endless happy days, acting out a fantasy world full of fun?. Or was it?
For most of us, as children, all we ever wanted to do was to grow up. To be like Mum or Dad. Sure, being a kid was fun, but hey, adult life was so much more exciting?. wasn't it?.
The problem is. When we do eventually grow up, we are faced with some harsh realisations. Life as an Adult doesn't quite look the same as it was portrayed to us on TV, or in Comic books.
These 6 Brutal Truths May Shock You
Truth #1. When people don't call you back, it's not that they don't have the time. The reality is, people prioritise you on how important you are to them. If you don't hear back from them, it's because they have deliberately chosen not to answer you at this time.
Truth #2. People have their own interests at heart. That's not to say they don't like or love others, but people's main objective is (What's in this for me?)
For the most part, people tend to treat you, how you treat them, and how you treat yourself. If you don't respect yourself, how can you expect others to respect you.
Truth #3. You are never going to please everyone. You're going to be criticised no matter what you do, so you may just as well do something you love. Spend time working on you, instead of spending time trying to please everyone.
If you really want to please people, live a life that people are pleased to see and model.
Truth #4. Your actions are what define you. That's all. You can tell people what you are going to do until the cows come home, but your character is determined by what you actually do, not by what you think about doing.
Truth #5. The World owes you nothing. You may be cool, smart and kind, but you are not entitled to anything. Life itself is your reward for being born, no one else is responsible for you, no outside force, no government etc.
Truth #6. No one is coming to save you. This only works in fairytales. In reality, if anyone is going to save you, it's going to be you. Stop waiting for something outside of yourself to make your life complete.
