Almost Everyone Tends To Neglect These 12 Harsh Truths of Life

When we are children we have to be taken care of since we are vulnerable and fragile, but when we grow up things change and we need to learn how to take care of ourselves. In adulthood, we come to the understanding that we are interesting to ourselves only and begin to follow a new set of rules. We aren’t going to be showered with praises when we do something good, there won’t be anyone to give us a shoulder to cry on, or push us towards success. The more we learn and interact with people, the more we will come across people who are much smarter and more attractive than us. Whether we choose to believe and accept these truths or ignore them these are undeniable facts of reality that everyone will face in their lives.

1Sacrificing yourself for others is not really worth it

Does this line sound familiar- “Everything I do, I do it for you?” while people may have heard this line in one of Bryan Adams’ hits songs, in reality when someone actually says this, it often begets a cold response like- “But I never told you to do it” the thing is our sacrifices are not required by the people around us. More often than not, they feel awkward and can get even irritated with this obtrusiveness. However, there is but one exception to this kind of situation, and it’s only when both people get satisfaction from such a relationship. This is known as codependent behavior.

2You aren’t going to get any medals at work

You won’t be getting a raise or a promotion anytime soon if you push yourself to do any kind of work at your job. Your boss and your colleagues will notice this about you if you do so and then they are going to pile on their work onto you. Being the hard-worker that you are, you’re just going to accept this work with naïve enthusiasm, unaware of the pressure you’re putting on your body. Meanwhile, your colleagues and even your boss will be sitting back browsing through their social media or gossiping with each other while sipping on coffee. You can’t expect the same kind of praise you received in kindergarten from your teacher for your hard work, from your boss. It’s a common saying that even though a horse might be the one to work the most in a village, it still can never become the head of the village.

3The absence of self-care is not body positivity

The fact that you are an untidy person having cracked nails, unshaved armpits, and might even refuse to use hygienic products has got nothing to do with being an of the body-positivity movement. This movement emphasizes the idea of accepting any appearance worthily while treating other people respectfully.

However, when you hear phrases like- “I love my rolls”, it could probably imply a lack of motivation to exercise, that the person is simply lazy and is irresponsible when it comes to their health.

4Appearance Matters

The phrase, “people judge a book by its cover’ still holds true, even though you may talk endlessly about your soul’s beauty or your rich inner world. In a job interview, your appearance along with your ability to communicate with other people will be assessed in addition to your professional skills. Also, a tidy-looking and seemingly confident person has more of a chance to successfully go on a date than an unkempt and untidy one.
