Say What You Mean and Mean What You Say
And that's the thing about people who mean everything they say. They think everyone else does too.
Not everyone means everything they say. This is a tough life lesson to learn, especially to those people who grew up instilled with principles of honesty and integrity deeply embedded in their psyche. As we face the real world, we would like to think that everyone is honest, and has the best intentions, but this is simply not true. We have to take the world for what it is.

This doesn't mean that we should go around being dishonest just because everyone else is but it does mean that we shouldn't be so naive to believe that what everyone says is true. An old saying might be a little too harsh but it is something to think about "Believe only half of what you see, and none of what you hear." Learn to trust those who only deserve your trust and no one who doesn't.

Actions Speak Louder Than Words
Actions speak louder than words, so believe what you see and forget what you heard.

I'd Rather Have A Life Of Oh Wells Than A Life Of What Ifs
I'd rather have a life of 'oh wells' than a life of 'what ifs'.
So many people let the question "what if" dominate their lives so much that they oft times forget to even take action. Sometimes it is very good to ask "what if" because asking this opens our eyes to many things we have never seen and probably would have never seen if we never posed the question in the first place. But as we all know, too much of anything is never good for us.

When Life's Tough Remember You Are Tougher
When life's tough remember you are tougher.
In a life full of tough times, tough people, and tough circumstances, it is easy to fall into the mindset that no matter what you do nothing in your life will turn out as you want it to. In order to overcome this mindset one must be willing to accept that life has its ups and its downs, but for the most part life is a result of the choices and decisions a person makes on any given day.

Understanding Lessons In Life

Understanding Lessons In Life
No matter who tries to teach you lessons about life, you won't understand it until you have to go through it on your own.
Experience is not what happens to you, experience is a block given to you by life from which you are freely able to build upon. One of the most important principles that we can ever learn in life is that there arent limits in life, unless they are first created in our minds. It is very easy to sit back and fear life because of bad experiences. So many people have let their experiences keep them in states of depression and sadness so much that they simply refuse to live their lives, and instead make a conscious effort to simply exist.
