10 Words of Wisdom to Consider

Updated: Mar 11

Here is an article I would like to offer to the world, whose content we should all consider; words that might be helpful for theoretically everyone:

1. Appreciate the small steps of advancement, because even if they are not grand enough, they are better than no advancement at all. Appreciate them enough and they will make you happier than if you were to take for granted a more significant advancement.

2. Accept the possibility that you won't always have something to talk about with those who are close to you. Accept the periods of silence and don't be stressed out. It is only rational that there are times where further topics of discussion are temporarily absent.

3. Know the difference between when apologizing is deserved and when it is useless. Small things do not need to be apologized for, like large-impact mistakes that could have been avoided. Suck it up and accept the blame with respect and tolerance. Don't seek another to take the blame when you can increase your own maturity by taking responsibility.

4. The same goes for guilt. There are things that even if they are your fault, you are technically not guilty for doing them. You are not guilty, for instance, for being deaf, and mistakes that occur due to being deaf should not be regarded with guilt.

5. If you are required to take medication, don't miss this opportunity to help yourself feel better. Even if it only delays the symptoms and does not cure them entirely, it is still better than living with the symptoms.

6. By accepting the inevitable and regular pain of life, enduring it will become easier than before. Not all pain is avoidable or unnecessary, and this type of pain can be used for growth in many ways.

7. Take the extra mile to challenge yourself whenever doing so benefits you more than the opposite. If you are a writer, expand the amount of writing you usually do, and your brain will become stronger as well as your self-discipline and persistence. By taking the extra mile, we learn to grow beyond the capacity of our momentary desires, something that in return grows our independence from them.

8. Don't overwork in whatever you're doing. Explore yourself in order to decipher how much it is healthy for you to endure. Don't feel unfortunate when others have a greater capacity in the aspect of endurance; too much overwork and you might unnecessarily harm yourself.

9. A person is not valued by the amount of views and followers they have on social media, but on the depth of the content they provide. While views and followers are beyond our control, we do have control over the quality of content we provide.

And finally,

10. Don't believe everything you are told. Be skeptical, and do your research to verify the validity of information before you believe it. Without doing so, it is easy to fall victim to misinformation and rumors.

If you have found these words of wisdom to be beneficial for you, feel free to share them with your friends, family, or on social media. Who knows, perhaps you will be able to make a positive change in their lives.
