Harsh truths of life

When I was 5 years old, my mom always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down “happy.” They told me I didn’t understand the assignment and I told them they didn’t understand life.”      unknown

1.Money is everything.You are nothing without money.

2. The world is not against you.It just does not care.

3. You can’t please every one.

4. All of us are going to die,some of us early and some other late.

5. Never take life too seriously.

6. To day is your day.Make best use of it or else it is too late.

7. Nothing is free.

8. No one is interested or cares about your problems.

9. People only show you ,what they want you to see.

10. If you are not laughing ,you are crying.

    People are always looking for
    something, for nothing.

    People tend to do what is most
    convenient. And then they repent.

    Some of the thoughts remind me some of the “rules” that has appeared in my mind during my daily work:
    3, 22.and 31 –> “When many people are part of your plan to do something, you certainly have to think for this plan as a direction, but not a route, to the intended goal”
    34 –> “When I do a mistake, all shall be informed for It in order not to work that way, But if my work is well-done, no one shall greet me because this is the expected end.”
    3 and 34 – “To ask yourself “Shall anyone like what I do?” – this is the best way to kill the joy of your workday.”

    Love the quote at the beginning. I have seen it before and it touched me.
    As I read through the list and went further down I realised if these statements were to be true then that is why life is difficult for me at times. Perhaps I am too naive for my own good.

      Ravisinngh, your words reminded me a phrase from my childhood, It was written somewhere in a list of so called “proverbs”. In short, the words were “When you go somewhere, always make sure to have a way back”. I have a vague suspicion for an initial military origin of this sentence – “When you plan to attack, don’t forget to have a possible way to retreat.”

    You couldn’t have said it more better. You have covered it all.
    Probably one more point added can be
    No one deserves you much more than you yourself, so spend more time with yourself.

    Everything about this post is definitely true about life! People, including myself need to realize these things and the fact that life is not meant to be all peaches and roses.

    By not trying at all,you have already failed.No action means there’s no positive result,so whatever it is you want to do,just give it a shot!😉

    There is certainly wisdom conveyed in this list. The old saying life’s a bitch while not the whole truth, expresses a portion of the truth. Much like the Yin and Yang there is good and bad. An inseparable dichotomy that punctuates all aspects of life.
