So I thought we could have a thing where we share and discuss general knowledge and wisdom based on our experiences and observations. So basically, if you think of some kind of general knowledge that you think people would really benefit from thinking about, go ahead and share it. Especially if it is one of those "Man, I wish someone had told me this when I was younger" or "It's taken me a long time to realize this" kind of things. If you like, you can say how you know what you tell us too.
Here are two from me.
1. Telling someone something is no reason for them to believe it. E.G.- You are wrong and I am right. Furthermore, even if you explain why you think you are right, people still have the right to disagree with you and in many cases they may be right to do so.
2. Not having a partner (boyfriend, girlfriend or spouse) is not necessarily an indication that you are undesirable, anymore than having a partner is a true indication that you are desirable. There are plenty of people in relationships who really are not suited to be. So just because someone has a partner, that doesn't really mean they know what they are doing. I say this mostly because I've seen people in relationships who were really not healthy, but people tend to act as though being alone is something so terrible. I just think that it is better to not be in a relationship than it is to be in a bad relationship.
That's all for now.
If you disagree with someone, you can talk about that too. Just try to keep it civil, as usual. I'd really like to hear from you all. Especially our older and more experienced members.
Bam, all it means is, if someone is petty enough to go out of their way to put you down, make you miserable and feel like crap, well they're pretty nasty people and they're not worth your time or attention :3
I like this one. Be loyal to those who chose you rather than people who "have to" be there, especially if your family treats you like dirt-stop letting them and realize who really cares.
Another one: kids are not good. No kid is "good" and the younger they are, the worse. I hear a lot of complaints about -parents- whenever a kid is crying on a plane or something. That parent may be trying their very hardest and putting all their energy towards calming that child, more than you would believe, but that kid is just gonna keep on crying anyway. because children are evil.
- If ever in an unfair fight, run over to the largest one and kick him in the nuts so hard he bleeds. Instant fear has been awarded. (Can't believe I learnt that when I was 6).
- Whenever someone insults you, make sure you got some one to hold you back.
-Blood does not equal family. The true people I consider family are my friends, the ones scattered about, well, everywhere.
-Just because you were treated like crap as a kid, and even abused, does NOT mean you deserved it. It can be traumatic, and take years and years to move forward...but it never goes away. It always affects you in some shape or form. You just have to do the best with what you have. If you're a victim of something like this, you're a victim. It's not a matter of blaming, it's just pure fact. And if it continues to go on, like it does for me, you have to do everything you can to get the hell away from it.
-People who are heartless and drop you at a moments notice, like my friend Ashley did who was one of my best friends, are heartless and don't deserve your love.
-Live is a journey, and can be a rocky path. There are ups and downs, but I love it so much because everytime I learn something from some experience, and I grow. And I believe that all growth is positive, and leads to a point of self realization, which I believe is the entire point of life.
-If you have someone you love, and who loves you, cherish them, give them everything you have to offer, and don't hold anything back in the relationship.
-Have fun while you can. You won't be able to forever with partying and such.
-You never know when you can make a difference in people's lives. It could be from a mere look, it could be the smallest conversation in the world. That is the beauty of life. We guide everyone else, and they all guide us towards our path.
Never give up hope. Things seem to happen when we least expect them, and in many ways have a manner of working themselves out by themselves.
"A person's emotions are their memories that can even reach across time. A person's emotions are their memories that have reached the gates of fate."
It is important to know that, even at an young age, we are not invincible and we are not immune from completely unexpected health issues (you could include other disasters here, like car wrecks or natural disasters).
If only I had known that six - seven years ago; if I had fully understood that it would have prevented me from whining about ridiculous things and helped me enjoy the best years of my life instead.
