Top Ten Things We Need to Learn

The Top Ten
1 No One is Perfect

"Perfect" is the most overrated word people use and sadly, a word that is abused quite often, especially by elders (E.g. parents and teachers) who expect this from you in areas such as school grades, an activity or a job.

We can become way better than we are right now, we can learn something new, we can improve in every situation, but we need to know one thing; we will never be perfect.

Perfection can only exist on a rigid matter, such as things you can get a maximum score on, like tests or video games.
For constantly fluctuating things, such as people, perfection can not and will never exist.

2 Fight for What You Believe In

Don't make other people destroy what you want to believe in, but be open-minded towards such ideas. Just learn how to defend yours and acknowledge the opinions and perspectives of the other party.

I fight for a crap-ton of things. Military and War funding, Childhood Cancer, Autism Awareness, School and Academic structure and management and even Filming and Media conventions, you name it.

I'm confused, "Fight for What We Believe In", or "Your Opinion doesn't Make it Right" are in direct conflict with each other.

3 How to Handle Rejection

Rejection is my biggest fear, which is why I don't ask about many things. I just fear getting rejected and then not knowing what to do. I try to go ahead and do rather than dream, but every time I chicken out.

When my best friend left me, I was shocked. But eventually I came over it.

I have been through rejection. it took a while to get over it
When I went back to her she gave me one final kiss

4 When to Walk Away

Yes I did say "Never give up" but you also have to be smart and know when is the right time to walk away from something that clearly isn't right for you. There is a difference between being strong-minded and stubborn and just plain stupid. Are you smart enough to spot it? I am.

Even when something is seemingly okay on the surface. If it doesn't feel right, let it go. Walk away. Why waste precious time?

It really isn't the same as giving up.

5 People Change

I would never, ever want to be judged based off of the things I did in the past. The same way, I refuse to judge people based off of what THEY did in the past. You'd be astonished how fast and how often people change. Holding grudges is a waste of energy.

It's just sad that some people change at a faster rate and the dreams you shared together are no longer are not what you both want anymore.
But change is good. Mostly.

I've had a pretty good change in my personality after twelve years of stupidity, and I hate being judged by my past.

6 Your Actions Have Consequences
7 Just Because It's Your Opinion, It Doesn't Make It Right

There are no right or wrong opinions. People just need to learn and know that.

And there's no such thing as "right". Claiming such is basically an opinion.

Whether you like it or not, your opinion won't be correct.

8 To Never Give Up
9 Not to Lie to Yourself

Can't Find yourself lost in your lies!

10 You Can't Always Get What You Want

The more things we create, the more problems we create. As our world get more and more complex, it becomes harder and harder to follow what's going on. We move so rapidly and mindlessly through the rat race of life that we're the lab rats controlled by our own possessions.

We so often focus on what we don't have, rather than being thankful for what we do.

But if you try sometime, you'll get what you need.

The Contenders
11 People Don't Change

The statement "People change" is true. It's a paradox but "People Don't Change" is also true. So we have to learn that, too, and not to waste our precious time with people who only promise to change.

12 The World Does Not Owe You Anything
13 That Everyone Has a Right to Be Here
14 Patience is a Virtue
15 Your Quirks are Unique

Anyone who says they are crazy are usually people who want a reputation and attention.

I'm a crazy weirdo and I'm calling you, 'cause I've really got nothing better to do!

Very true. I don't want "perfect" people in my life. That would be far too boring.
