3 Hard Lessons to Learn in Life πŸ˜΅

Ever felt that a particular piece of advice was so good that if you could just put it into practice, your life could get so much better? If you felt that, you are not alone. Today, I will be talking about three things which once mastered can change your life in the most wonderful way. Yet, they are so hard and do annoyingly obvious that we often forget about them. We all know about these things yet they are too difficult to do. So let us talk about three things that we all know we should do but are unable to. Let’s begin!!

1: We Know That We Should Manage Time

I mean, come on now, I have never heard a single person say that they manage their time well, that they do things before it is too late. We know that time is valuable but we still avoid acknowledging its value because we don’t have time for it. Does this even make sense? Lol! πŸ˜†

2: We Know That We Should Stop Worrying About What People Think About Us

This hardly works because in a small part of our hearts, we do care about what people think about us. And though we know full well that it doesn’t matter, when we are in a situation like this, we can’t help but think what that particular person we met just thought of us. This leads us to think that we aren’t good enough which is a stressful way to feel. Not that everybody feels that, but I do, a little bit.

3: We Know That We Shouldn’t Compare Ourselves With Others

When it comes to studies or pretty much anything, I compare myself sooooo much, it’s a pain in the butt!

Comparing gives birth to envy and self-loathing. You would be completely satisfied with your grades until you would ask the class topper how well they did. Is there any day in life when we don’t compare ourselves with others? Frankly speaking, the answer is a big NO. Comparing comes so naturally that we often don’t even realize when we are doing it.

What do you think? Have you succeeded in mastering any of the above points? Let me know your thoughts in the comments πŸ˜€.


Welcome to my site where I talk about all things bookish and from time to time, put my writing skills to test.

  1. I think I’ve reached a decent level of not caring what anyone else thinks of me but when it comes to the opinion of someone close – it becomes hard to not care.
    Time management is something I just can’t master and it bothers me a lot. I wake up at 6AM and somehow end up wasting 3 hours till I absolutely need to go to work. πŸ₯²

    1. I know right! I guess most of us can’t help but care about what people close to us think about us. It also makes us feel this need to please them, which is not always bad.
      Damn, I try waking up at 6 am but i also sleep late so neither works for me πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­.


  2. Definitely the last 2 are hard for me, even when I try working on them! It’s hard to be standing out and not thinking that everyone cares but I guess that’s when you have to fake it till you make it! πŸ˜†and I’m definitely trying not to compare myself to anyone this year!

  3. Nope, I definitely haven’t mastered any of these 🀣 I guess the one I’m best at is that I don’t really compare myself to others all that much, but since I instead hold myself to ridiculously high idealistic standards that are unachievable anyway, I guess that isn’t much better πŸ˜… But boy, do I worry what other people think of me! I try to stop it, but I just can’t help it! And my time management could certainly be better… I always manage to finish what I absolutely have to do before it’s too late, but it’s always a super stressful close shave 😁

    1. It’s still better than worrying about how people are better than you, that just sucks πŸ˜‚.
      And i know right, same!!
      These days it’s like no matter how much time i manage, work is still pending πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

  4. Nope. I’ve achieved none of theseπŸ™‚ The only one I’m doing a tad bit better at is the second one. Though sometimes I just get this wave that ‘I don’t care what people think about me. Who cares?!’ And then after five minutes I’ll be like ‘I care.’. Did that make sense?

  5. Well I was really upset to see lesson #1 while I’m here reading blog posts instead of doing the work I’m supposed to be doing… lol

    I do pretty good at #3. #2 I’m good with most people but there are always a select few that I struggle to “impress”.

  6. Time management, I suck at it!
    I think these few months of my drop, cut from the outside world have got me caring about nobody but just a few of my closest people.
    Comparing, that’s very true! We sub-consciously start comparing ourselves with others.
    Great post, Nehal ❀
