10 Facts Of Life We All Need To Understand
Start writing a post

There any many hard facts you learn as an adult. Sometimes, we refuse to come to terms with or we just have never thought much about it. These 10 facts are some of the things I believe we need to come to terms with to live a better life.

We all have different paths

Giphy

It will take different amounts of time and energy to follow your own path.

You are who you surround yourself with

Giphy

Good friends will encourage you to do good things.

Always do your best

Giphy

Because you can never fail.

Laugh more than you cry

Giphy

But when you do need to cry, let it all out.

Never stop learning

Giphy

and never stop asking "Why?".

Always be yourself

Giphy

If you don't, you will be too busy trying to keep up with all your lies instead of having fun.

Know what you see on social media

Giphy

Is not how it is 100% of the time. They are only showing the good parts of their lives.

Happiness is not a place

Giphy

It comes from within you. Don't keep saying "I'll be happy when I get this job.". Be happy with what you have and then you will be happy for the rest of your life.

You are by yourself

Giphy

In the end it all comes down to you. Your life is made up by your choices.

Don't take life so seriously

Giphy

Because no one gets out alive anyways.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.
