The Toughest Lesson in Life


The toughest lesson in life that you will have to learn is to know when to keep your mouth shut, and when to walk away.


No matter how right you think you are, no matter how wrong you think they are.

Because you could be wrong, and they could be right.

Choose which fights are worth it and avoid as many as you can.


The toughest lesson in life that you will have to learn in life is that you can't change people.

People won't change unless they want to.


The toughest lesson in life that you will have to learn is to not care about things that do not concern you.

If you believe in karma, if you believe in God,

If you believe that everyone will get what's coming to them,

and accept that only God can play God,

then you will let it go.



The toughest lesson in life that you will have to learn is

patience.



Tick tock tick tock.



Aku paling benci time pagi-pagi buta sebab itulah masa aku rasa paling lonely. Ia juga satu-satunya masa aku rasa nak cakap banyak-banyak tapi bukan cakap dengan orang jadi banyaklah timbul monolog dalaman. Memang rutin aku untuk cakap dengan diri sendiri dalam minda macam orang gila dari pukul 1-3 am sehinggalah aku tertidur.


Jawapan kepada post di bawah akan dikarang esok. Atau lusa. Aku memang procrastinator terhebat.

'The toughest lesson in life' reminds me of how difficult to be 'well behaved' when you really need to.No matter how difficult, I/we still have to 'learn' these 'lessons.'More,more please...

In case you haven't noticed, you have so many friends & 'followers' that you don't have to feel lonely.May be you're missing someone special tak? :)

Sounds like we had this conversation before, but we didn't did we?

You can't change them and pick your battles are what I've known and practiced when I met Adam and after marriage. It works. It's tough, but it isn't the toughest lesson in life.

For me, the toughest lesson is it's over when it's over, and really, you don't get an effin right for a closure. So deal with it.

Life Lessons are the Hardest to Learn by cgerrits

Have you ever noticed how some people can teach you life lessons about who you are and what you hold dear? Have you ever passed a stranger and wondered what tragedy they've endured in their lifetime? Have you ever asked why me... or better yet, why NOT me?

Life lessons are often the hardest to learn and you never know who's going to be the instructor. Sometimes it's an actual teacher who fulfills that role. Sometimes it's a friend. Sometimes it's a parent. And while you could argue that we really already know deep down the things these instructors reveal to us, it stands to reason that a reminder now and again about who we are and what we hold dear, can and should serve as wake up call or guiding light as we navigate our lives.
