Things I learned in order to keep my shit together

14 Aug

Some are mine and some are from others, but mostly all of them are true….

  • Age is absolutely the worst predictor of someone’s maturity, intelligence, or general ability to operate with any sort of common sense.
  • When you’re happy, people want you to be unhappy. When you’re unhappy, people want to cheer you up (but are probably secretly happy they are happier than you). The only way to actually be happy is to stop using anything external to determine your well-being.
  • I need to stop fighting with my sister, it’s never-ending, exhausting and I just need to learn to quit her and stop try to so hard. Which brings me to…
  • I’ve learned that no matter how much I care, some people are just assholes.
  • Whatever you believe you are, you are.
  • Whatever you think you deserve, you’ll get.
  • If you learn something necessary. If you grow in the process. If you go on to make something better, more efficient, or useful. Then, you did not fail.
  • You can’t have anything unless you let go of it, and there is NO WAY of getting all you want.
  • I’ve learned that you shouldn’t compare yourself to others – they are more screwed up that you think.
  • The quicker all the “shoulds” get out of your head, the better off you’ll be. The reason most people are unhappy? Terrible expectation management.
  • If humor is not the number one thing you look for in the opposite sex, then reevaluate. The only thing that will keep a relationship together (and healthy) is being able to laugh at yourself and each other. It’s not always going to be rainbows, sex romps, and unicorns.
  • Loving yourself is, hands down, the only way to universal compassion. When you love yourself, you can’t help but be loving towards others.
  • I’ve learned that you can keep vomiting long after you think you’re finished.
  • Chocolate cake (our cupcakes) fixes everything.
  • A good cry once in a while is necessary to keep one’s shit together.
  • Bad things do happen to good people.
  • People deserve a second chance, but not a third.
  • It’s the simple things in life that are the most extraordinary.
