      Default Life's Most Important Lessons

      What is the single most important lesson you've learned in your life up till now?

      I'll start.

      That you are only limited by the perception of you have of yourself. That how you see yourself determines what can and cannot be accomplished. That no barrier is unscalable unless you see it as such and that the key to that perception and thus the most important thing parents teach their children is.....self respect.

      That its not life in general that causes you problems its your interpretation and reaction to life events that causes you problems, You cannot control anything only your emotional reaction to it.

      Perhaps, some may see me as a little too young to participate, but I have learned a few life lessons in my life.

      1. Do not take your life, health, friends and family for granted.
      2. All relationships require maintenance.
      3. Always be careful with fire.
      4. I still have a lot to learn.

      One of my favourite Linkin Park songs!! But very apt!

      Hmm...I guess not to forget to laugh, to take some 'me' time, all is illusion, to take time to smell the roses, to remember its ok to say no sometimes.

      Will no doubt have more later on....

      This is basic, but oh so true!

      Treat others as you would have them treat you.

      Give me the stength to not do unto him as he has unto me.

      Wisdom is the flame...wisdom is the great warrior that will carry us into the sun.

      If I didn't have the strength and wisdom of a warrior, I would have had to give up.

      I am thankful that I, am as strong as I am, and I will continue to do the best I can.

      Cooperation is the essence of success.

      Give and recieve equally...in accordance with the universe.

      I don't know if these are the lessons i learnt but this is what i say to myself....

      "People don't really want to listen my woes and sadness but if there's someone who does then i call them my soul mate "

      "I try to respond to situations rather than reacting to it"....phew it's easier said than done....

      "Evading my duties instills fear in me"

      "It hurts the other person as bad as it hurts you"

      "Every relationship expects something from you"

      "No relation,nothing is constant....but change is"

      "There is always an other side to a person,like the two faces of a coin"

      "Believe everything trust nothing"

      Even so,implementing these lessons is a dilemma,every time i try to do that my Ego,individuality,selfishness comes in the way...so i still need to learn how to implement my learning's.

      I like this young man! Very good to know you have these values even though you are still working on them. and to have these values at your age...well, I am impressed! So, have you met your soul mate yet?

      Oh, don't worry, no big deal about your age...your age is very nice! 20 is very good! lol I don't normally judge people by their age or anything...but, I do have to take it into consideration. Like I said, you seem to be a very smart and mature young man. Keep up the good work...you sure got my attention!

      Well then, I guess you have to answer the other thread and tell us what you are good at doing? Curious minds would really like to know?

      I find lifes most important lessons are that your never too old to learn a new one. You will never know everything, even if you tried.
      Humility, simplicity, understanding and acceptance with wisdom of the Almighty is the key to living a meaningful life.

      Default Mmm... Let's see...

      In 29 years living on planet earth and I've learned so far:
      1. Everything happens for a reason.
      2. To accept my past is all that I can do
      3. To be thankful for what I have

      4. To keep my mouth shut when I'm angry at someone will save me a lot of trouble I'll regret later on.
      5. Hope for the best of a situation, but always be prepare for the worst, and most important always have a back up plan
      6. There's no such thing as perfection because its a concept due to interpretation
      7. Not to try to please people, they are never satisfied
      8. I cannot change anyone but me
      9. I'm allow to make mistakes and not be so hard on myself if I fall sometimes
      10. My faith in Jesus Christ will keep me together as it always has and always will be
      Oh when I started to write I didn't know I have learned so many possitive life lessons so far, but the list of what I have to work on is longer than this one, so I hope eventually I can add some more.
      Nothing to say... silence is just beautiful
