I love people who can keep an on-going conversation. The ones who try their hardest to switch topics when replies get short, the ones that make you feel important, the ones you’re comfortable speaking to, and the ones who will take time to solve your problems without judging you. You know, the people who always seem excited when talking to you.
For my 1000th post, I wanted to make sure I didn’t post just another picture. I wanted to post something actually productive for once. And what’s more productive than posting about some lessons I’ve learned this summer. Because honestly, during this one summer, I’ve gone through more shit, than any other summer during my lifetime. And with hardships, comes growth. Growth as an individual.
Heartbreak is a bitch.
This summer is probably the first time I experience what I consider my true heartbreak. That situation where when that special someone in your life leaves you and for some odd reason, your entire world just seems to end. Your heart is crushed, your happiness is just thrown out the window, and you just become a large emotional wreck. Yeah, heartbreak is a bitch.
No one in life can live forever. Despite how much you may love that person, everyone is going to die eventually. Death is an inevitable occurrence, and there’s nothing you can do about it. There’s nothing anyone can do about it, except to accept the loss, and continue living their own life.
There’s a pill for pretty much any problem in life.
A majority of all of life’s problems can be solved with a simple pill nowadays. Regardless the issue, there’s definitely some type of prescription to solve it. Except AIDs. Good luck with that.
Success is equally relevant to the amount of effort a person puts in.
Nothing in life comes free. You have to work for what you want in life. Why people fail in relationships, academics,athletics, etc. isn’t because it wasn’t meant to be. It’s because that person honestly just didn’t try hard enough. If you stay dedicated, and put in all your effort, improvement and success follow behind automatically.
Don’t take anything for granted.
One of the worst things a person can do, is to take another person for granted. Nothing feels worse than feeling like you aren’t a priority to someone else. To feel like you aren’t appreciated. To feel like you’re worthless. Never take anyone or anything anyone does for granted. Because you honestly have no idea how long you’ll actually have them in your life for.
Enjoy the little things in life.
It doesn’t always take big gifts and extravagant parties to make a person happy. The simple things in life, like a small gesture, or a couple of nice words can go a long way. Sometimes the best remedy for any emotional distress, is simply being surrounded by people who you know care about you. Good times in the company of great people.
Don’t judge a book by it’s cover.
Don’t judge anything by what you’ve heard from other people, judge by personal experience. A lot of things in life can be tainted in name easily by other people. But just because one person didn’t like or approve of something, doesn’t mean you personally wouldn’t either. Never turn anything down just because you heard bad things about it. Try it yourself. No one knows what you like more than yourself.
Friendships fade fast.
People you expected to be there in your life for awhile. Forget that shit. Friendships fade rather quickly with time. It isn’t really an issue that can be prevented, it just happens.
True friendships don’t fade as easily.
But out of all the quickly ending friendships in your life, your true friends really become more visible. You’ll realize in life who your long term friends will be in the future. The friends you’ll know you’ll always have, regardless of where time takes you. The one that will always be there for you, no matter what.
Money can’t by true happiness. But it helps.
Money honestly can’t buy you happiness in life. But it’s really hard to do or accomplish anything that can make you happy, without any money. Realistically, being broke sucks. Regardless of what anybody says. I’m pretty sure every hobo you see on a street corner isn’t overly ecstatic about the position they’re current in. Money honestly makes the world go round. Gas, food, entertainment, life essentials. Nothing in life is free.
Just because I talk to someone a lot for a while, I’m not going to fall for them. I’m aware that one day they might just leave and ignore me without a good reason. If someone tries to flirt with me, I’ll flirt back but I don’t expect them to gain feelings for me. I don’t play hard to get, I’m just being smart
