lessons of life

It’s okay if you didn’t get top grades at school, at least you got the grades at all.
It’s okay if you didn’t get that job promotion, at least you didn’t get fired.
It’s okay if you didn’t win first place in that competition, at least you gave it a shot.
It’s okay if you failed that test or quiz, at least it’s over and done with.
It’s okay if you weren’t the first over the finishing line, at least you crossed it.

It’s okay if you don’t come out top in everything you do, at least you can say you did it.

15 Important Life Lessons

1. Don’t take yourself too seriously. Learn to laugh at your mistakes.

11. Don’t suffer in silence – reach out for support.

12. Everything changes.

15. Believe that the best is yet to come.

I’ve been walked on, used and forgotten and I don’t regret one moment of it because in those moments, I’ve learned a lot. I’ve learned who I can trust and can’t. I’ve learned the meaning of friendship. I’ve learned how to tell when people are lying and when they’re sincere.
No one comes into your life without teaching you some sort of lesson. Every time someone leaves you I want you to try to figure out what you’ve learned from your experience with them. I think by doing that you make it easier for yourself to move on because you realise that the hurt you’re feeling right now isn’t all for nothing and that one day you’ll be glad it happened.
—  always try to learn from your heartbreaks.
