Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,299 People

    I was born with great talent,

    I learned to fix computers when I was a kid, excelled at martial arts and video games, slept in classes and got good grades anyway, could always see more of what was in front of me than others. All this yet life was always a mess, I managed to help others often but I myself was...

    Of course I have.....

    isn't that the point? Some lessons, I had to learn more than once....just to to be sure I got it. (I can be a bit obtuse at times) But some of my most cherished and revered experiences are ones I didn't think I wanted.

    Lessons Learned.

    I have learned that your happiness should always come first. You shouldn't put others before yourself. I have learned to not accept advice form someone who doesn't have to deal with the consequences, or has never experienced that situation. I have learned that karma truly is...

    I think the most valuable lesson I've learned

    thus far is that I do not have to allow toxic people into my life. I have always tried to find good and be supportive of others, but I learned there are those who will always be angry, bitter, and will suck the air out of your life. I suppose I should try harder but self...

    Not all of them. But I have learned a couple of

    harsh ones lately that have really changed my perspectives. Only the future can tell what's in store for me.

    If you like someone, don't give them a night of

    fun after one week of knowing them. Strong relationships start from innocent frienships

    Too many to count and sometimes I just wish I

    would stop learning life lessons because they are too painful for words... Trust is delicate, people's personalities intricate and every choice made costs you. Big steps or small, doesn't matter because you're still moving and in the end if you don't move forward you just get...

    The more I learn about human nature,

    the more I despair and lament. Adaption from indoctrination is the only option. But, that is a hard thing, indeed. It's always better to know. But, it always hurts to know. I'm not sure of a base truth I learned that didn't harm me in some way. I think the singularly most...

    When you blame someone

    for something, you put the issue or emotion or circumstance on them, and by doing this you push away the power that you actually have to change the situation, or at the least how you feel about it. There can be no blame in a heart of love. Love shines over all and envelopes like...

    Here's a couple of things I learned this year:

    1) The only person you can depend on/trust is you. 2) Pay attention to those who aren't happy in your time of success 3) Never ever give your all to anyone. It's exhausting and not worth it. 4) Focus on you. All the emotional stability you need is in you. 5) Always...

    1-Other people's opinion of you is none of your

    business. 2-No one has the right to assess your worth. 3-Never get involved with a coworker. 4-A person's true colors will eventually be revealed. 5-When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time. 6-Actions speak louder than words.

    My life is no one's fault by my own.

    I choose to act, react, or take no action and those choices dictate my situation. I'm not a victim of anything. Never have been. That was a tough one to swallow.

    And maybe the most important lesson is

    that there are very, very few absolutes or certainties when it comes human nature. In fact, I'm almost never surprised anymore by what we do, or how we react or think. We are a strange lot ;).
