Let me lecture you: 10 life lessons

life lessons

I got some life lessons for you kiddos. I’m 33. I know what I’m talking about. Jk jk. I have no idea what I’m talking about. But I can tell you some things I've learned along the way and that work for me. Maybe they work for you, too.

1. There is no such thing as safety. Everything is fragile, everything is volatile.

2. ...Therefore: you HAVE to live your life without fear. You have to give up the illusion that being afraid of things will keep you safe.

3. Things will fall into place. Your actions will always (even if unconsciously) take you to the place you’re meant to be in. You will gravitate towards it.

4. You are a free human being. You can quit things whenever you please. You don’t have to prove shit to nobody.

5. Trust your guts. Trust your instincts. In the long run, they are always right.

6. You will never fully fit in anywhere. That’s just the price that comes with being an individual.

7. Your reality, your truths, your values are just a possibility. There are many more realities out there, which are all equally real and equally valid.

8. Every choice you make is as good as any other choice you could have made. Get it?

And my faves (life mottos if you will):

9. You did what you could. Considering the circumstances, your knowledge, your feelings, your moment in life,... you did what you could. You could have NOT done it better. You always did your best. (This is such a liberating thought!! I hope you can relate to it. It will make your life so much easier!)

10. Everyone is just trying to get by. Open doors. Build bridges. We’re all in this together.

Wow, that turned out way more philosophical than I intended. Hope you still enjoyed it!
