5 Facts Of Life Every Young Person Needs To Come To Terms With

Listed below are five quick pieces of advice on things that most of us as young adults have to learn to come to terms with in order to move on and be happy in our lives. They can be hard to accept, but once accepted, things in our lives get easier.

1. No response is a response.

We may not ever get the closure we are hoping for, and that is something we have to understand. There won't always be a response to our questions and statements.

"No response is your answer. If they don't care enough to reply to you, then you shouldn't waste any more of your time." — Unknown

2. If they wanted to, they would.

Stop making excuses for them, and stop letting them make excuses to you.

"If someone seriously wants to be a part of your life, they will seriously make an effort to be in it. No reasons, no excuses." — MyDearValentine, Pinterest

3. Timing will not always be in your favor.

Life has its own way of doing things sometimes, and we just have to trust the process and that everything happens for a reason.

"Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored." – Earl Nightingale

4. Not everyone has the same heart as you.

We all feel and understand differently. Not everyone will be just like us, and we have to learn to be okay with that.

"Not everyone has the same heart as you .You'll end up really disappointed if you think people will do for you as you do for them." - Unknown

5. When people show you who they are, believe them.

Why would you pretend they're anything different than what they have proved to you?

"When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time." - Maya Angelou

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

Ross Woodhall

While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
