What Truths About Life Have You Learned? People Shared Their Thoughts.

I strive to be a lifelong learner and I believe that change is good…

Even when it’s painful and forces me to reevaluate just what the hell I’m doing with my life.

But that’s part of the journey, friends!

Let’s hear from folks on AskReddit about the truths that learned about life.

1. Not my problem.

“That people will either like me or they won’t.

And it often had very little to do with me.”

2. Missed out.

“I’m never going to experience hard drugs.

Too old, got a job and mortgage, and I have kids.

My window has passed.”

3. We live in a wild world.

“The people that have gone nuts over the last 6 years are not going to just “come to their senses” one day.

They will never admit that they were lied to and conned and there is no perfect combination of words that will lead them to that conclusion.”

4. Truth!

“There is no point in arguing with random people online.

It’s a waste of time and energy.”

5. Do your thing.

“What you do is always going to upset at least one person, so don’t let other people’s unnecessary opinions ruin your life.

You live once, and once only.”

6. It’s all good!

“People believe in God.

I don’t.

Nobody cares.

It’s all good!”

7. Sad, but true.

“That access to information (i.e. Internet) does not necessarily lead to a better informed population.”

8. Can we turn it around?

“The world is run by greedy, selfish people and we are doomed as a species with the current mindset.”

9. Goes by fast.

“That life really does pass in the blink of an eye.

When I was younger, days would feel like weeks, months would feel like years… but coming up on 40, I don’t even know how we got to Oct 1st already.

Wasn’t it just Christmas?!!”

10. Great…

“That multinational are so rich and powerful there’s literally nothing we can do but wait until they become our overlords.”

11. Life isn’t fair.

“I am not going to find love. I’m not going to remarry. I’m going to be alone for the rest of my life.

My ex husband who married his mistress has found love and will not be alone for the rest of his life.

Sometimes life just isn’t fair – and that’s ok.”

12. Gotta work for it.

“Nothing is given to you. You have to work for anything you want and need!

It hits us all too late and we’re usually in debt and unhappy.”

Now it’s your turn.
