Hello there! It’s been a while since I posted on here. I must admit I miss posting! It’s been crazy the past few weeks so I didn’t have the time to post, but I am back and happy to be back. Here are a few harsh life lessons I believe can be useful to know or learn during your 20s. Some of these lessons I learned the hard way, I wish I was aware of them sooner because they could have saved me many disappointments. Enjoy and you can add to the list below in the comments section because there are a few I am sure I didn’t add to this list.
Harsh Life Lessons
Have backup “plans” instead of “plan”, just in case the original plan goes left more than once.
New grads salary negotiations are important, don’t accept a job offer unless you negotiate your salary.
Love who you are and be confident. Nothing in life is ever that serious to keep you from being your true self.
Everyone is not out to get you, most are just looking out for their best interest, so don’t take it personally.
Mostly everyone has problems, so while your problems might be unique they should not disrupt the lives of others.
It’s easy to spend a $1 but it damn hard to turn $1 into $2. If it was easy we all would be rich by now. So, save! Save! Save! If it’s not a necessity you can live without it.
Give back when you can, because you never know when you will be the one needing a helping hand.
Stop the blame game. Every disappointment in life is not always someone else fault sometimes you just messed up or didn’t plan properly.
Silence is powerful use it wisely. Learn to speak up if your voice will make a difference, but learn to keep quiet if it will cause more harm than good.
Invest in people who invest in you. Focus on the people who love and support you genuinely because these are your people.
Life is hard but it can be harder with the wrong people in your life so choose your people wisely.
All congratulations are not always sincere so be selective with who you share your accomplishments with.
If you need a favor be respectful of the person’s time and ask directly don’t beat around the bush.
If you’re wrong apologize quickly and learn from your mistake. Don’t try to be politically correct.
People make mistakes so learn to forgive quickly but don’t forget what the situation taught you.
