Lessons From Life

These past months have taught me a lot about life; how hopes can be crushed and hopeless situations turned around all in a blink of an eye. I’ve learnt that no matter how much you are willing to bleed for some people, they just keep showing you why they are not worth it. I’ve learnt that everything in life is based on your perception; you expect to be disappointed, you end up being disappointed, you expect to be cheated on, you get exactly that.

But most of the time you are justified to feel the way you do; that no one can be trusted, life is full of disappointments and the likes, because of your experienced share of shattered dreams, dashed hopes, disappointments, betrayals and different kind of hurtful things. Yes, you’ve been lied to, betrayed, told you are not good enough, hell, you cant even sleep peacefully with your two eyes closed because you don’t know what the darkness has in store… but should you allow that to define your life? NO, should you place your life on hold because of that? NO.
Sometimes you don’t expect something good from life because you’ve unconsciously written yourself off, that you don’t deserve it. Well, why not you?
That you are alive today is a sign that you are a survivor. Everything that has happened to you have only made you stronger, and believe me, you need all the strength you can get because life is like a jungle and in a jungle, each day you fight to survive, each day it is the survival of the fittest. Don’t be deceived, things are not getting better, they won’t! You want to be told that corruption, wars, epidermic outbreak, deaths will end? Well, they won’t, so start living in reality, Welcome to earth! that’s how things are here.
I’ve learnt that most things that affect our lives are things beyond our power to change directly. But if all it takes to get through a really bad day is a smile, then smile, if all it takes to get by each day is a little hope and optimism, then keep hope alive! You’ve gotten these far, now is not the time to give up. Your life is what you choose it to be, so stop moping, put a smile on your face. expect something good is coming your way because you sure as hell deserve to live a long happy life. A little disappointment or challenge comes your way and you want to give up? well, you are not permitted to, you keep fighting and keep living because life’s for the living, so live it or you are better off dead



I am an avid reader and a student of stoicism. I believe we are more powerful than we give ourselves credit, and the limits of our power are still to be discovered. I have a deep interest in the study of the brain and the mind.
