What are some of the dark lessons that life taught you? by Prakarsh Chaurasia
Answer by Prakarsh Chaurasia:
1 – 544 friends in my facebook list,3 among them called me up when i was depressed,alone and clueless about my future.
Lesson-Life is not about facebook likes,anymore.
2 – When i was failing in life,it was my mother who waved her hand through my hair,and assured that every thing will be okay soon.
Lesson-No one cares about you during your failure except your family members.
3- *After my first breakthrough*,Calls and messages from relatives,friends and strangers, stating how much they loved this news.
Lesson-Success is the best revenge.No one gives a shit when you're nothing.
4- Was suffering from serious typhoid.
Lesson-Health is wealth,no matter how much you earn or how much you are focused towards your career,never ever ignore your health.
5- Saw a girl requesting her poor parents to buy her a book while they couldn't explain her why they can't do it.Same day,saw some guys enjoying their puffs while they were gladdened about how they bunked their school classes.
Lesson-Money and education matters in life.
6- One of my friend is working as a freelance photographer,he earns decent money that makes him happy on the other hand one of my friend is working in a top mnc having a salary in seven figures yet he always cries about how pathetic his life is.Moreover the society considers the latter one as a good example and the former one as a bad example to follow.
Lesson – Society is a crazy breed,do what you want to do in life because people are going to judge you anyway.
7- Whenever i confront any scathy situation in my life now,i pour out my feelings in my journal rather than that on social media because i know that my journal would never laugh at me behind my back.
Lesson – Sometimes you have to give up on people.Not because you don't care,but because they don't.
8- There is a story behind every person on this earth,the reason why they are the way they are,so think before you judge someone.
Lesson – Never ever judge a book by its cover.
9- Some of your closest friends wants you to rise in life,but definitely not more than them.
Lesson – We can't blame them for this as it is our society that brought the notion of competition . It has always been the survival of the fittest.
10 – It might take a year,it might take a day,but what's meant to be will always find its way.Settled and perfect life is a myth and it's better to accept it as soon as possible.We can't live a life without worries but we can surely live a life without regrets.
Lesson – Sometimes you will never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory.
