17 lessons

there are 17 basic lessons i've learned in all my 17 years of living on this good earth. and here they are;

1. you don't have to get along with everyone you meet in this world.

2. you always have at least 2 choices, even if you don't like either.

3. most people operate out of selfish motives.

4. it's rarely all about you.

5. "be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle."

6. there are 3 sides to every story, her's, his and the truth.

7. everything in your life is your responsibility.

8. you train people how to treat you.

9. there is always hope.

10. you can always be grateful for something.

11. honesty is always the easiest route. even if it's not in the short term.

12. you should never stop learning, or trying to be a better person.

13. worrying is useless unless it motivates you to take action

14. when people show you who they are, believe them.

15. there is only fear and love, and one of them is way more fun.

16. if you aren't making mistakes, you aren't trying hard enough.

17. complaining and blaming other people doesn't help anything, and makes you miserable company.

it's quite funny to think how much a person can learn.
