13 Shocking Life Lessons You Wish You Were Told Sooner

You Can't Please Everyone

No matter how hard you try to please the world, you can't please everyone. No matter what you do in life, there will always be haters you cannot please. It's impossible to make everyone happy, no matter how hard you try. You're bound to upset someone along the way, whether intentionally or not.

No One is Immune to Failure

Failure can happen anywhere and any day. It is bound to happen to you at some point in your life. No one is immune to failure. Failure is a part of life, and everyone experiences it at some point. Life is like a game. When you lose, you fail, and you have to start over. Even if you fail, it is not the end of the world.

Your Happiness is Entirely Up to You

Your happiness is up for you to decide. Whatever decision or action you take, it is all up to you. No one else can make you happy, and no one else is responsible for your happiness. If you aren't happy, then you are the one to blame. No one can control your life.

You Can't Change the Past

Stop brooding about your past mistakes or experience because you can't change no matter how much you think about it. This life lesson is hard to accept, but it's true. No matter how much you want to change what's already happened, you can't do it. The past is in the past, and there's nothing you can do about it.

Give Yourself a Break

Life is a roller coaster and that's normal. Everyone has their own issues and problems they are dealing with. Having balance in life seems impossible to some people, but it's not. Whether it's work, family, or vacation, you want to have it all.

Never Stop Learning

You can never stop learning until the day you die. An important life lesson that most people think is not necessary. Just because you graduated from school doesn't mean your learning days are over; you're still learning new things every day. Whether it is a new hobby you are getting into, investing your money for the first time, or starting a side hustle for extra money, it is new when you are starting out as a beginner.
