You will learn that revenge is only going to hurt you in the long-run. It’s only going to prolong your pain and suffering. It’s much better to focus on how to make yourself happy than how to make someone else miserable.
You will learn that your comfort zone can be a prison. It can hold you back from achieving your wildest dreams. Sometimes, you need to embrace the unknown and accept that feeling of discomfort. You need to challenge yourself to do something that scares you
You will learn that putting in effort is one of the sexiest things someone can do. Showing that they care is not embarrassing. It’s attractive. It’s proof that they’re on the same page as you and are willing to do the work.
You will learn that clinging to bad relationships is only going to hurt you. You can’t expect them to change and treat you better tomorrow. You have to focus on how they’re treating you today, and ask yourself whether you deserve that treatment (spoiler alert: you do not).
You will learn that you can’t get your way all the time. You need to learn to stay flexible, to compromise, to go with the flow. If you are too rigid, then you are going to end up uncomfortable ninety-nine percent of the time.
You will learn that trust is fragile. If someone gives you a reason to stop trusting them, it will be hard to believe a single word they say moving forward. Relationships can be ruined in an instant, even if they felt absolutely perfect yesterday.
You will learn that love is more than a feeling. It’s an action. You need to make a conscious effort to treat your person well every single day. You cant get lazy because you’ve known each other so long. You need to keep trying to keep the relationship strong.
You will learn that fear isn’t necessarily a sign that you should avoid a certain path. It could be a sign that you care deeply because this really matters to you. It could be an indication that you need to take a risk, that you need to go for it and see what happens.
You will learn that sensitivity can be a strength. Understanding and accepting your emotions is a skill. It’s something that you should be proud about being able to do. It’s something that you should embrace.
You will learn that other people have influenced you more than you think. That you have been making decisions based off of what would look the best to others, not what you actually want deep down. But it’s never too late to change your ways. Never too late to chase after what you want.
You will learn that pushing others away to protect your heart is actually causing you deeper pain. It’s isolating you. It’s making you feel alone when there are so many people out there who would love to get to know you, who have the potential to really make a difference in your world.
You will learn that it’s impossible to please everyone. Trying to make others happy is a losing battle because everyone will view you differently. So you might as well do whatever makes the most sense for you, personally.
