What things have you learned as you've gone through life?
They don't have to be important or deep. Just something you've learned.
Since we're starting a new year, and this is the time when people look back and reflect the most, I thought this would be a good topic.

I'll start:
If I've learned anything in my lifetime it is that Dr. Pepper and chocolate don't mix.

I looked through the thread index and tried a general search but didn't find a thread like this. But, I could've missed it, and if this is a repeat thread I apologize.

BTW: HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY!!!!!!

Hmm...
That being nice and a yes-man is very, very bad. People take control of you.

Well, yeah. That's the main thing I learned.
The information is true. If you're too nice, you're taken advantage of. The world's cruel like that.

That the world is equally (if not more) cruel as it is nice.Be glad if you know someone really nice just dont take advantage of them.

I've learned that you can never really trust anyone, you should never tell your secrets to anyone no matter how trustworthy they seem. Its very hard to find friends that last forever. =_= Also, I learned that I should really just shut the heck up sometimes, and think before I talk. The most important thing I learned in life, talking on the phone for a long time really hurts your ears.

i've learned that experience is the best teacher but we are all stubborn students.
we keep repeating the same mistakes ( just as i do in cramming )
also, love is another example.

I've learned to be more social and open about my feelings I used to not talk at all unless I was asked a question lol.. My mom told me that I almost always never laughed back then and was surprised at my sudden change! haha..

Oh & i also learned not to make my friend angry lol .. She got pissed off at someone and that person regretted pissing my friend off at the end... Then when we were walking around my friend started telling me all about what pissed her off about this person and she was scary...

I've learned that each person needs to take a self journey trip alone every once a while...
when the soul gets weary,
when the self's giving up on the world,
when dissapointments hits at every corner,
when there's no purpose/dreams & etc to chase after

... to try to reflect back in life
... to return to innocence.

Doesn't need to be a trip overseas or luxury trip to etc.
It can be any budge trip to remote areas, walk among the highway alone,
walks in the fields, just letting the legs take you to where ever, just to stop to breath and look at the sky.
Just get away and live in a budget hotel or friend's house away from everyone.

Sit in the park, watch the elders with their life.
Sit on the grass, watch how kids play.

Pamper yourself with simple self indulgence...
Be it with ice cream or curry puffs in hand,
Be it your legs in the sand,
Then, come back after a few days to reality.

You'll learn part of yourself, you've never know.
Not everyone has happy fairytale,
But everyone can write their own & live their own fairytale & filled it with twist & plots of it's own.
That's why cheers to another year!
Rejoice for another year of giving us the chance to live our life & making it right.

I learned that life is truly a blessing, and that all the hardships are there to make you stronger...as hard as they seem at first.... And that good friends are hard to find, but once you do find them, it's worth the wait!
