22 Harsh Truths About Life That Everyone Needs To Know

Undoubtedly, life is difficult for most of us. It’s a roller coaster of ups and downs, and sometimes it feels like as soon as you get up, you are knocked down again.


Everyone knows life is hard, but nobody ever realizes just how hard it can get. When things begin to tumble down around us, it can make us feel hopeless. While we shouldn’t try to control the things that happen around us – because we can’t – it doesn’t mean we just have to sit there and take a beating. We should get back up on our feet and fight back.


The more we beat ourselves down, the harder it gets to keep going. Nevertheless, once we accept these brutal truths, it’ll help us get our shit together. We can’t keep waiting for things to get better; we have to do it ourselves. Accepting these things can really open our eyes to the importance of it.


1. We’re Dying


No matter how much time and money we spend on making our life perfect, it will always end no matter what.


2. Everyone We Know Will Die


We can’t constantly obsess over losing people and death, but we also can’t take anyone for granted. Eventually, everyone we know will die, and we may not be the last one to go either.


3. Wealth Isn’t Happiness


No matter what amount of money we have it will never cause us to be happy. Happiness is within, no matter the riches.


4. Searching for Happiness Makes Us Lose It


Happiness is right under our nose. If we are constantly searching for something to make us happy, we’ll never suffice our hunger. To be happy we have to be satisfied with what we already have.


5. Spend Time Not Money


Most of us believe that we can’t enjoy ourselves without spending money, but this is wrong. We don’t have to go out to dinner, we don't have to go to the cinema to see a movie, or go to an amusement park to have fun.


6. We Can’t Please Everyone


Trying to please everyone around us is exhausting. We just cannot do it, so we need to stop trying.


7. We Should Accept Our Feelings


We should stop trying to deny ourselves. We have feelings, and we can’t get past them without admitting we have them to begin with.


8. When We’re Gone, We’re Gone


We should never worry about trying to leave a legacy because we probably won’t be able to. There are about 7 billion of us; there’s just not enough we can do to make others remember us.


9. We Should Be Responsible


Nobody is responsible for our actions except for us. Regardless of what influences us, we are the ultimate decider in our fate. We need to take responsibility for ourselves and our actions.


10. We Can't Be Perfect


No one perfect, and even though we all try to be, we'll never be. Perfection is an imaginary tale of fairies. We need to stop trying to live up to some non-existent standard and love ourselves.


11. We Waste Our Talent


If you have a talent put it to use! You shouldn't let a god given ability go to waste!


12. Live in the Moment


As much as you try to plan out and control your life, you ultimately don’t control anything. We can try to predict the future and prepare ourselves for it, but it’ll never work out the way we think it will. So, stop trying to predict the future, and you'll achieve happiness.


13. Nobody Cares About Your Problems


Life is difficult for everybody. It throws us all twists and turns, so don't think you’re the only one it happens to. Stop trying to make everybody believe your life is harder than theirs. It’s just a never-ending piss contest.


14. Share Your Knowledge


The most important about learning is that we can share it with the people around us! Knowledge is helpful if we share it with each other. If we learn something the hard way, we should help our neighbor out by warning them.


15. Invest in Yourself


Unless we spend time on ourselves, life is pointless! We don’t get to live as anyone else, so we need to take the time to make ourselves the best version there is.


16. Things Can't Always Go Our Way


Life may always throw us curveballs, but it comes down to the way we react to it. If you think it's the end of the world, it will really feel like it. But, keeping your chin up and remaining positive will show you that things aren’t half bad.


17. Quit Daydreaming and Do the Work


Dreams are for the birds; we have to make our biggest wishes come true. There are no wish-granting genies even though we all still hope one will show up just for us. It is time to stop expecting things to change and try and change them ourselves.


18. Time is More Valuable than Money


Most people are so obsessed with money that they forget about the real terms of currency in life; time. They literally exchange forty hours of their lives per week in exchange for cash. But they have to realize that time is much more valuable than money.


19. Be Grateful


No matter how bad we think we might have it, there is always somebody who has it worse. We should be grateful for the things we do have instead of wishing for the things we don’t! It takes the pleasure and value out of everything if we don’t appreciate it!


20. Donate Time


We should donate time to making our community better, not just money. The one way to improve our society is by doing something about it. So, step up and donate some time to your community!


21. Don’t Lose Yourself


It’s critical to never lose your real sense of self during the journey of life. Always remember what's important to you and keep a sense of your priorities!


22. We Can’t Take Money with Us When We Die


You may be a millionaire in the world, but you absolutely can’t take it with you when you move on. All people will die eventually, so we shouldn't get too caught up in our own finances.
