Accept Uncomfortable Truths

Accept Uncomfortable Truths to Live a Happier Life

How much happier would your life be if you could accept uncomfortable truths that everything is not going to go your way?

To explain how this can make a huge difference in your life, let’s talk about something that everyone deals with from time to time – disappointment.

What If You Were Better at Handling Disappointment?

Imagine a life where every time something didn’t go as planned or something didn’t work out in your favor, instead of getting disappointed and upset, you tell yourself, “that’s okay. There will be other opportunities. I will just have to find a different way. No big deal.”

The reality is, you will be disappointed at times. There’s no avoiding it. But do you want to spend your days feeling like the world has ended every time something goes wrong? Why not use those situations as opportunities for growth instead?

Life Isn’t Going to Go Your Way All the Time–and That’s Fine!

Everyone wants life to go their way all of the time, but that’s not reality. While there are things that you can accept and deal with (like not everyone likes what you post on Facebook), there are also things that take time to get used to (the idea of getting older). You accept them, the less pain they will cause.

How to Start Accepting Reality in Your Life

The best way to start accepting reality is to list out all of the things you have accepted already in your life. Here are a few things people often accept without thinking twice about it—because it’s so obvious:

1. You Will Hurt Someone’s Feelings Sometimes … and That’s Okay!

Consciously or subconsciously, you had hurt someone’s feelings before by saying something that came across as harsh when you didn’t mean it that way. Try not to beat yourself up over this because whatever you say, no matter how good your intentions, sometimes it will come across as harsh or hurtful.

2. You Will Eat Food That is Unhealthy and That’s Okay!

People at times eat way too much junk food and unhealthy food because they like the taste (and most people don’t like eating healthily for various reasons). They think that they can always fix their diet later by going on a diet, but they will continue to indulge themselves in junk food until then. But does this mean you’re doing something wrong? Is your life flawed because of this? Of course not! Do what you want as long as you understand it’s not something you should make a habit out of doing. Life is about compromise, and everyone has their limits.

3. You Will Make Mistakes … and That’s Okay!

Making mistakes means that you are on the path to becoming a better person who will eventually know what it takes to be successful in life. There will always be people better than you at the things that you do, but what matters is that you keep on going despite making a mistake or two along the way. While these mistakes can mean disaster if not dealt with carefully (and this applies to both personal life and business), remember that sometimes even great people like Bill Gates made mistakes but were able to recover quickly because they could learn from their mistakes.

4. You Will Make Less Money … and That’s Okay!

With today’s economy being what it is, you are bound to have periods where your income is way below what you expected, even if you are doing everything right. You should accept this because trying to hide this fact or pretend like it never happened will only make things worse for you in the long run. Once again, don’t beat yourself up over this because not everyone can be successful simultaneously out of sheer luck alone. Not all jobs are equal—even two jobs in the same industry with similar job titles do not carry equal value when it comes to compensation packages. It’s not fair that some people win over others, but you should accept this as part of life.

5. Your Life Won’t be Ideal … and That’s Okay!

No one can have their life perfectly planned out where they know exactly how everything will turn out in the end—it just doesn’t happen that way. No matter how much you want to control your destiny or what happens to you, at times, there will always be factors beyond your control that will affect the decisions you make. For example, people who have experienced serious illnesses have turned their lives upside down just because of a simple diagnosis that required them to undergo very painful surgeries. They didn’t plan for that to happen, but because they accepted that life is not fair (and that’s okay), they were able to adapt and make things work, even if it meant having to do everything differently than what they would have wanted.

6. You Will Feel Lonely … and That’s Okay!

The feeling of loneliness will affect most people at one point or another in their lives—whether it happens momentarily or for a period long enough where you can’t escape from it anymore, loneliness always ends up appearing in some way, shape, or form. It could be caused by many factors, including change in environment, change in friends who start drifting away from their social circle, death of a loved one, etc. But the good news is you can get out of it by deciding to take control and do something about it. If worse comes to worst—make new friends! Being lonely isn’t fun at all, but this doesn’t mean you have to let it stop you from achieving your career or personal goals because so many people will always be happy to help.

7. You Will Experience Heartbreak … and That’s Okay!

Breakups may be difficult for some people because they never expected them to happen in the first place, even though deep down, there were clues that things could go wrong if left unaddressed. While this may be a scary thing to hear, it’s not as bad as some people make it out to be. Learning from your mistakes is one way of growing as a person to learn from those painful experiences and never let them happen again. If things had been handled the first time differently around, or if perhaps there were more questions asked instead of assuming what was going on based on circumstances that only made sense at the moment, then maybe things wouldn’t have ended up being so difficult afterward.

8. You Don’t Have All the Answers … and That’s Okay!

It would be nice to think that you know all the answers—but unfortunately, no one knows everything. If they did, then that would eliminate the need to strive for more knowledge or go back to school because there wouldn’t be any gaps in education that needed covering. While it might be difficult at times, accepting that you don’t know all the answers will allow you a sense of peace and quietness inside your head—it won’t feel like a war waging on while making decisions. This also means you have an opportunity to learn new things which can help build your career from different angles—the best part is … getting older doesn’t stop you from doing this! So even though some people may think you are too old to learn something new—that isn’t true!

9. You Won’t Get Everything You Want … and That’s Okay!

If you expect to get everything on your wish list, you are setting yourself up for disappointment later on when things don’t happen the way you want them to. Understand that life is not fair, so some people will have more than others even if they didn’t work as hard—it just happens that way sometimes. Getting upset about someone having what you wanted isn’t worth it because it doesn’t matter anyway—you can always find other ways to fulfill your needs instead of being jealous of someone else. The truth is we live in a world where having money rules because it’s the only thing that can buy happiness. So if you don’t have the money, then the best thing to do is work towards getting it and not worry about your other goals until you have covered this first because life isn’t fair—it never has been and probably never will be!

The feelings of loneliness and heartbreak should be expected at certain points in our lives—while there are other times we could completely avoid these feelings because we made wise decisions that helped us avoid those experiences altogether. This doesn’t mean we can stop living our lives or working towards what we want just because those emotions might come up again one day. It just means we need to be smart about coping with those feelings because they never seem to leave us alone until we do something about them. The truth is if you care about anyone in your life—even yourself, then you will actually.

10. You Don’t Have as Much Time as You Think … and That’s Okay!

The world moves quickly nowadays, so there will always be a clock ticking somewhere that alerts us that time passing by slowly is inevitable—this means no matter what we do or where we go, it will always keep going regardless of our actions. If someone doesn’t have a lot of time left on this earth, then you can bet their death will probably happen sooner than they would like. Try not to get upset about it because no one can change how time works or slow it down—you need to learn how to accept that things will happen whenever they want, and there is nothing you can do about it. Yes, life has its ups and downs for everyone, but sometimes what we think are roadblocks are disguised opportunities like learning new skills or meeting different types of people that push us into directions we might not have thought of otherwise. The only thing that matters when accepting this truth is making the best out of every moment, so try your best not to waste any more time than usual!

11. Life Isn’t Fair … and That’s Okay!

Life isn’t fair, and the truth is that we live in a world where money rules because it’s the only thing to buy happiness. So if you don’t have any money, then working towards getting it will be your best course of action—the key is not to worry about anything else until you can cover this expense first because no one has ever been successful without trying. It might take some time, but after putting in your hard work and dedication, you should see an increase in wealth, which means your other goals will become easier to achieve!

12. There Won’t Ever Be a Better Time than Right Now … and That’s Okay!

There comes the point when we start postponing our dreams because we think there is a better time to do it, but the truth is they never seem to come. You can continue living life if you have money or go into debt building your dream—it doesn’t matter which one you pick because most things are just an experience that will either make us regret something or be happy about what happened in the end.
