Naturally, there are some things about life that take people alot longer to understand. But the sweet thing is once you understand this things, everything else falls from into place, almost like magic.

Here are 7 Realities of life you just need to understand.

Realities of life

1. People are there to take advantage of you if you let them

Even your closest relative will take advantage if you let them, its just the way humans were programmed.

To avoid this you have to strive to strike a balance between being nice and being a mugu or whatever it is called in your place.

2. Always remember Anger solves nothing

We are human, so no matter what you do or how hard you try, you’ll still get mad about all sorts of things in life, from your friend removing your almost dead phone to plug his almost full phone, to your wife or girlfriend assaulting you verbally. The two examples above is sure to make any sane human mad, but the trick here is Letting it go. Because staying angry won’t solve anything, instead it raises your blood pressure.

Anger solves nothing

3. You don’t owe anyone anything

Never let anyone take advantage of you or make you feel bad for not helping them.

4. Don’t take life for granted

Enjoy life
Fact: life is too short, if you doubt me, take a walk in a mortuary. Everything that you hold dearly in your heart can be changed in an instant.

Inortherwords, never take life for granted.

5. Don’t let your happiness depend on other people

Doing otherwise only leads to messed up relationships.
Also don’t try to make everybody happy it’s good to be nice and all but carrying the burden of everyone’s happiness on your shoulders is unrealistic and unhealthy.

6. Stop waiting for the right moment to go after what you want

Stop planning and waiting for the right moment. Just go for it.

“Stop waiting for the perfect day or moment….take THIS day, THIS moment and lead it to perfection.”
– Dr. Steve Maraboli

It is the only way to live a life without regrets.

7. Things seldom work out the way you expect

Sometimes, fate is on your side; other times, it is not. either way you have to trust that whatever’s supposed to happen, will happen’ and nothing you do will stop it from happening.
