We had a hard time turning 25. It was really one of my most stressful birthdays ever. Why, I hear you asking me. I finally understood that I am a quarter of a century old and will turn 30 within 5 more years after looking back on the years. I think that challenges in life come into your path for a purpose. In order to advance in your life, you must overcome certain challenges.
Life is filled with lessons—the good, the terrible, and the ones we may never properly understand. Most of us never truly feel fully ready for the next phase of our life when we hit 30. Family, job, children, and home buying are all significant milestones that lie ahead for us. Before you reach 30, you should learn these lessons, which are essential for building up your future. So, an idea began to form, and I'm pleased to share these Life Lessons to Learn Before You Turn 30 with everyone.
1: Doing things correctly is less crucial than doing them correctly. We've done a lot of things wrong and will continue to do so. However, the greatest errors I've made weren't those where anything went wrong. They are the situations in which I pushed myself to act for the wrong reasons, such as what I believed was required of me, whatever I believed would look best on my resume, or what I believed to be the most rational course of action. It took me a while to learn, and I'm still working on it at some level, but curiosity, a want to learn, and a desire to connect are what motivate me. These are significantly more powerful drives.
2: We must love. You're familiar with the phrase, "Better to have loved and lost than never having loved at all." I know that we often brush off clichés with a wave of the hand, but maybe this is a truth so fundamental that we can only express it in aphorisms. Yes, we should love, despite the pain it causes, because without love, our life would pass us by.
Love is not enough. Even while we must love, love alone is insufficient for survival; we also need to behave in a way that lets others know we care and that we love them. Yes, love is indeed a verb.
Happiness cannot be purchased. We explore the aisles, shelves, and pages of eBay in quest of something more, anything to fill the hole, despite the fact that we cannot purchase happiness. However, these things won't bring us joy in the long term. At most, worldly possessions may calm us down momentarily. In the worst case scenario, they will devastate our lives by leaving us feeling empty, unhappy, and even more alone—alone in an ocean of trinkets. The fact is that we shall all die, and filling our graves with riches will not rescue us.
3: It's okay for friends to come and leave. In thirty years, we have to meet a lot of new individuals. I've discovered that short-lived friendships—those that only last a year, a week, or even a single evening—can be just as transformative as those that endure a lifetime. I'm glad I had the opportunity to learn from some of my pals in the first place rather than mourning their absence.
4: Everybody is fascinating. On a similar subject, I've discovered that if you ask the correct questions, you can discover something from everyone. People have experienced many lives, traveled to regions of the globe that you have not, read books that you have not read, and engaged in discussions that you have not. Understanding their mindset is a remarkable approach to advance, particularly if it seems strange and unsettling to you.
5: Fiction has more impact than non-fiction. This year, unlike previous years, I read an unusually significant amount of books that were classified as non-fiction. What I found is that non-fiction books have a tendency to make me think in a mechanistic, logical manner. If I follow the author's formula, everything will turn out okay for me. On the other hand, when I read fiction, I tend to think creatively and intuitively. I draw links where there were none in my thoughts. I aim to apply options rather than a template. Science and history textbooks are the exceptions. They are intellectual powerhouses when together.
Here are few more life lessons which you must take into considerations:
