I’m going to share the 5 truths of life Laura sent me the other day. Clearly, this isn’t an exhaustive list, and if you have some you’d like to add, put them in the comments.
- Everything Changes and Comes to an End
A perfect example is life. We go through so many changes, planned & unplanned (see #2). We change jobs. Ideas change. Feelings change. Interests change. Friends change. And then it ends. At least this life we’re currently living ends.
- Things Don’t Always Go According to Plan
- Life Isn’t Always Fair
This is something I want to teach our child. Fairness should never be counted on. Life is unfair from the beginning. I played no part in where I was born or the parents I was born to. Neither did the child born to a single parent, living in a makeshift hut.
Learning to let go of the illusion of fairness makes life easier, freeing up time to work with your current situation.
- Pain is Part of Life
The most evident truth. Pain is what makes joy so pleasurable.
- People Are Not Always Loving and Loyal
Unfortunately. And just because loyalty is a desired trait doesn’t mean loyalty should be practiced blindly.
