I wish someone told me

• That, friends will come and friends will go and you should cherish the ones that remain with you at the end of the day.

• That love, like happiness, can never be pursued; you need to wait for it patiently to come and enter your life.

• That, all the studying and fretting over marks in school and college will not help you later at the workplace; that requires a completely different set of skills.

• That, no matter how much you fight with your younger brother during your teens and early adulthood, he is going to be one of your closest pals later in life.

• That, getting married early is not a kind of bondage, but a beautiful opportunity to grow along and explore life with another person.

• That, though you will get irritated with kids at the time of their growing up, the joy they bring you is boundless.

• That, speaking the truth is over-rated because not everyone can handle honesty.

• That, you are going to regret, later in life, the time you never spent with your parents which you could have.

• That, worrying about what other people are thinking about you is going to get you nowhere because other people are really not thinking about you; they are thinking about what other people are thinking about them.

• That, you should consider yourself lucky if you have a single, considerate boss in your entire career – someone you can go up to and talk whatever it is that is bothering you, someone who can act like a mentor.

• That, you can run away from the things you really want but they don’t run away from you; they will keep pestering you till you give in to them.

• That, being frank and outspoken is a quality which many do not always appreciate.

• That, as you age, you mellow down and change into a completely different person; a person who forgets and forgives things which they wouldn’t when they were younger.

• That, the interests you develop when you are in school, such as reading, travelling and music, stay with you for life.

• That, being a socially active person who speaks to almost anyone and everyone is any day better than being a quiet, introvert who might be mistaken for being snobbish.

• That, counting your blessings daily is a great way to develop gratitude and attract more of the good things into your life.

• That, we should be grateful God does not give us all that we ask for.

• That, facing your fears is a good way of banishing them; the release it provides is unimaginable.

• That, there are no limits for what you can do, except the ones you set yourself.

• That, you need not always be nice and friendly with everybody; some people just do not deserve the same.
