Learned Life Lessons

so, i havent posted in awhile so i figured i would post something worth reading. i wanted to post some of the things ive learned in life so far, hopefully someone will not make the same mistakes ive made. im only gonna add some now, so feel free to add anything, as long as its sane or not spam....


- never fully trust someone, always have a doubt about them.

- there is always that 1% of human error, nothing is a 100% guarantee.

- life is never as bad as it seems, there is a upside, you just have to see it.

- if you have something worth fighting for, then do it, and dont stop.

- never second guess yourself, and never hesatate.

- listen to yourself more then you listen to others.


so, thats a few, ill post more when i have time.

Re: Learned Life Lessons

Sounds good to me but I would add

Always watch your back...

Never make up your mind without thinking everything over

Never cross your fingers

and

Dreams can't always come true, so don't depend on them...

NEVER HESITATE! Youre only caught slipping if you do.

-Tired of the same old view? Walk slower and check shit out.

-Always keep an open mind.
-Always hold onto your own ideas/beliefs.

-If youre "nice" stay that way. You'll get more out of it by helping others, than taking advantage of the nice and wondering why no one really does want to do anything for you.



The easiest way thru life.....Close your eyes and dont say a word.

Re: Learned Life Lessons

- Nothing can last forever, there is always an end.

- The littlest words you say, can sometimes mean so much to someone. watch what you say.

- never burn the bridges you have made in life, you never know when you may need to cross them again.

- the % rate of good to evil in life is: 65% Good - 35% Evil watch what choices you make in life.

- the human error factor is the hardest to plan, you will never know what someone else is fully thinking, no matter how well you know them.

- there is a split second between an action and a reaction, that second could mean life or death.


more next time i get a chance.....

Re: Learned Life Lessons

- always punch hobos, if you dont, theyll attack you whyen you least expect it. no shit.

- fire IS fun, and you should play with it regularly.

- your music taste says a lot about you. as such, never profess a love for adema, evenescence, coldplay or any of the other legions of soulless pants that people watch thier lives rot away to.

- knifes are NOT to be stored in your mouth, i seriousily cant stress this one enough.

- other peoples advice should always be taken with a pinch of salt. they arnt you, and thier advice only 100% fits thier lifestyle, not yours.

- go outside, really, the internet has a place, but not an actual genuine social interaction place, real people are better for that.

Re: Learned Life Lessons

if you never give your full trust to someone, you'll never open yourself up to all life has to offer

compassion can change the world

my mom WAS right

never have high expectations for men and you'll never be disappointed

forgiveness will release you

Re: Learned Life Lessons

- fear never solved anything, it will only drag you down, learn to fear nothing, it will help you in the long run.

- time heals no wounds, it will only make them worse.

- "what doesnt kill you only makes you stronger" true, but it also makes you a bigger target.

- nothing is what it seems to be, even if its right in front of your face.

sooo, i had to learn all this the hard way, thru life and death. nether gave me much slack, so learn from the mistakes ive made....

A man with no fear, is a man with no hope.

Looks can be deceiving, so use your heart and go for feeling.

Re: Learned Life Lessons

its better to of loved and lost than to of never loved at all.

dont let things go to your head

dont let your possessions own you

take a deep breath once and awhile

dont hurry through life

(at my age) dont keep wishing you were older because when you are older you are most likely going to be wishing you were younger

dont waste your time just dreaming about things you want to happen... get up and do something about it.

dont be too scared to try something... its better to try something and worst being you fail than regretting it forever.

Re: Learned Life Lessons

Whoever said "be able to laugh at yourself"

My philosophy is: For every 10 jokes I crack at myself, I have gained the right to, in turn, make a joke about one other person, only to a person that I know and love dearly, someone who considers me as good a friend as I do them (or as they so tell me.)

The one who said go with your heart and feeling: I wish I would have known that 3 years ago. A girl I worked with at a restaurant was totally in love with me, but because I didn't find her physically attractive I was too stupid to go for her. I have yet to find someone who treated me more kindly than she did....I miss the hell out of her, and I never even knew her last name...

Don't go by looks, you will end up regretting it. If I could change one thing in my life, it wouldn't be un-skipping all of those classes, wouldn't be not doing my homework, it would be to have taken the chance with her. I am hoping that the name will come to me someday soon but...unless my sister recalls it, I'm screwed.

Go for love, not looks.
