The older I get the more I know. At least that’s the way it’s supposed to be. I think I’ve learned a lot over my lifetime and I would like to share a few life lessons that I’ve learned over my time on this planet. I’m sure there is more to learn – every day is a school day – but here are three of the lessons I remember most.
- No matter where you go, there you are.
Do you find that you’re having a shit time everywhere you go and with everyone you meet? It might not be them. It could very well be you. In other words, if everyone is telling you to fuck off it’s highly likely that you’re being an asshole. Examine your behavior and the way you interact with people and if you can’t do that, find someone whose opinion you trust and get ready for some tough love.
- Try not to give any more than a handful of fucks.
People care too much about dumb shit. Did you get offended by something you saw on Social Media? Harden the fuck up and keep scrolling. Is the car in front of you too slow off the lights? So are you some times. Was your cappuccino not frothy enough? Boohoo. Go live where they’ve never heard of cappuccinos.
Care about real shit. Care about your friends, your family, your health – you get the idea. Limit the number of fucks you give and you’ll have a better time.
- We have two ears and one mouth for a reason.
Listen more than you talk. You’ll probably learn something and you’ll be liked a whole lot more.
I hope that’s been of some value. There are lots more life lessons that I’ve learned but I think these are the main ones I try and live by. It’s not easy but the benefits are limitless.
