Things Every Human Needs to Hear

A simple life is all about being intentional in everything you do, everything you own, and everyone you spend time with. It is about holding on to what is important and letting go of what isn’t.

Here are some simple things you should hear today, no matter where you are in your life’s journey.

  • Taking no risks will end up being your biggest risk. You have to risk failure to succeed. You have to risk rejection to be accepted. You have to risk heartbreak to love. If you’re always avoiding risk, you’re risking missing out on so much life.
  • Fun doesn’t have to mean partying and socialising. Your fun belongs to you, make sure you define it.
  • Long-term patience is a millennial growth hack. If you can stick to a good thing, for a long time, without letting Instagram or Facebook convince you that the grass is greener elsewhere, you can go really really far.
  • You self love must always be stronger than your desire to be loved by others.
  • You will never control your future if you let your present be controlled by your past. You’re not responsible for your trauma but you are responsible for breaking the cycle and not hurting more people because of what happened to you.
  • Things everyone needs to come to terms with:
    – No response is a response
    – Taking no risk, is the biggest risk
    – If you’re happy alone, you’ll be happier together.
    – Changed behaviour is the only real apology.
  • You have to let people down to be happy. You and your mental health are more important than your career, more money, other people’s opinions, that event you said you would attend, your partner’s moods and your family’s wishes.
  • Stop telling yourself you’re not qualified, not worthy or not experienced enough. Growth happens when you start doing things you’re not qualifies to do.

    I definitely needed to hear all thee things today. Great post. I think I’d add ‘make a moment each day to be awed by something ordinary.’

    It’s so easy to get lost in life and where we’re going or where we’ve been, noticing something small but wonderful in our day to day dealings can remind us what an amazing world we live in, even if everything else seems to be going wrong.

  3. I would add “Allow yourself to be Human instead of Superhuman. Acceptance leads to self-love which fills you to others-love.”
