13 Things You Should Know (About Life)


After spending all the days in bed crying and moaning about how miserable I feel, I'm beginning to think that I am nothing but an overly dramatic teenager in one of those moods. But I guess we all have those days: we stare at the window and think, what the fuck.  

Which brings me and Yssa to the realm of self-analysis of how far are we are in life and what have we learned.

1) Life is a bitch. 

It's unfair. 
It's never going to be all rainbows and butterflies. 
It's never going YOUR way because YOUR way is never good enough. 
Life is the ultimate betrayer of all betrayers. 

Life is an a**hole. It leaves you with heartaches that you can never fix. It's disappointing really. Break-ups. Missed flights. No promotions. Failed projects. Divorce. Doing time. Bad grades. No fries. Next thing you'll know you start singing I did my best, but I guess my best wasn't good enough 'cause here we are back where we were before~ been there, done that.

2) ..but life can be pretty kind, too. 

On the contrary, Louis Armstrong is sorta right: it's a wonderful world. Behind those shitty days and restless nights, we've all had our mantra of "Hello, neandrathals! I've come to share the happiness and spread love to the people around the globe!" 

Because we all know that those tears are all worth it. In the end we thank the universe for the everything or thank God or Krishna or Allah or everybody we all look upon for that matter. We celebrate victories. We rejoice a new beginning. We dance in the rain. 


3) Someone will always be better and worse than you.

True happiness is felt if you learn to accept what you have and what you don't.
Comparing yourself to others is a disease.
People's opinion matter but they never mean to dictate what you're suppose to do.

Quinn is right. 
Don't destroy people.

4) We are all fools.

We've all done stupid things that made us look stupid or probably might even haunt us forever.
It's human nature, I guess.
You don't need to feel ashamed.

I mean, somebody had to test the depth of that puddle, right?

5) Live in the moment.

Not in the past.
Not even in the future.

"With the past, I have nothing to do. Nor with the future. I live now." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

6) Don't be sorry.

Do what you love and what makes you happy and never apologize for it. - Karla
Because you know better.

Unless of course you start hurting people then do me a favor and say sorry.

7) Just f*cking do it.

Take a chance.
Make a change. 

Tell her you love her. Laugh. Cry. Drink vodka. Dance. Sing. Order extra rice. Cut your hair. Go out. Say yes. Say no. Ace the quiz. Smile at strangers. Speak out.

The result is not gonna be what you expected but it's better to do things than never get a chance to do it at all.

8) It's all in your mind.

A friend once told me that the only thing stopping us from doing something we want is fear.
We fear of getting hurt or being rejected.
So we refrain from doing things.

Remember what the Spaceman said: Everybody look down, it's all in your mind.

9) You will lose some.


But, hey. You will never lose everything. Believe me.

10) ...and you'll gain more!

You gain knowledge, experiences and memories.
You gain relationships.
You gain lessons.
You begin to discover more about you.

About life.

11) Stay strong.

Being strong means not feeling anything or being heartless.
It's about feeling everything and never giving up on what matters.

Pride is one thing.
Know what you'll bargain it for.

12) You're not alone.

Someone cares for you.
Don't make things harder by over-thinking that you're on your own.
Because you're not.

Don't give up on yourself.

13) LOVE,


Pretty much all Coldplay songs you can think of.
