8 Valuable Lessons Time Has Taught Me Through The Years

 

1. As much as you want, it’s impossible to please everyone. So, instead of wasting your energy trying to please those around you all the time, focus on pleasing yourself. Put yourself on a pedestal and learn how to respect, love, and take care of yourself properly.

2. No one is perfect and no one is truly satisfied with their lives. The sooner you realize this, the sooner you’ll stop feeling the need to compare yourself with others and the sooner you’ll start appreciating what you already have in life.

3. You spend most of your life pursuing and worshiping false goals and ideals. What you should focus your energy and attention on is discovering what ideals, values, and goals truly matter in life. You need to find out what values contribute to your happiness and success. And the sooner you figure that out, the sooner you’ll begin living.

4. You can try as much as you want, but you can’t reverse the aging process. Accept the fact that it’s natural for your body to age. Whether you’re in your 20s or in your 50s, your body is beautiful at every age. You just need to be willing enough to see that.

5. No one lives forever. No one is immortal. This may be quite hard and painful to accept, but one day, we will all leave this world. Therefore, instead of spending all your energy regretting your past, or what you’re missing in your life, or worrying about what your future might bring, try living in and embracing the present moment.

Surround yourself with kind and positive people, spend more time with those who truly love and care about you, and always make time to do the things that fill you with happiness and bring you a sense of fulfillment.

6. Your physical appearance doesn’t define you. It’s the way you live your life and the things you do to help others overcome their problems and pain and achieve their happiness that define who you are.

Therefore, stop worrying about whether you’re too skinny or a little bit overweight, or about what others think of your looks. Having a pound more or a pound less doesn’t define who you are, and it certainly doesn’t define your worth.

7. There are other things that are more harmful to your health than any tasty burger or cake you may deny yourself. Worry, stress, and fear greatly affect both your mental and physical health.

Living a life full of happiness, enjoyment, and peace is the best medicine.

8. Your material possessions and how much money you have on your account don’t matter. What truly matters is how much love you give to those around you; how kind and compassionate you are toward others; the knowledge you share with other people; and, of course, how much you love and value yourself.
