5 Brutal Truths You Must Accept In Order To Move Forward In Life
Life is Not Always Fair
We’ve all heard this axiom hundreds of times, but there are still some days and situations when we just refuse to believe it. When an ‘unfair’ situation occurs, it is always best to acknowledge that you don’t think that it is fair, and then shrug it off and move on. Lamenting the unfairness of the situation will get you nowhere and will prevent you from embracing the beautiful wonder that the universe has in store for you! Don’t ask “Why me?,” instead ask “How can I use this?”
Even When You Do Everything Right, Things Can Still Go Wrong
Similar to the above truth, there will be situations where you do everything right and things still go wrong. This can be one of the most difficult life lessons to accept and overcome because it is proof positive that we may not always know what’s best for ourselves. When you take all of the necessary steps to reach a certain goal, and nothing goes to plan, it’s time to step back and take a breath. Your plan may not be what the universe has in store for you, and it’s time to renew your faith in powers greater than yourself, let go, and trust the divine’s plan for you!

Not Everyone is Going to Want to Be Your Friend
Even after our school years making and keeping good friends can be an ongoing challenge. When we are attracted to another person’s energy and want to forge a friendship with them, the sentiment may not be reciprocated. Rather than trying to devise a plan to “make” them like you, or finding fault with yourself and wishing that you were different to how you are, trust that you are being protected. Even if this is a positive person and that will bring light into your life, they may just be on a different path that doesn’t include you. There’s no reason to find fault with yourself or feel that you need to change, just accept their decision.
Maya Angelou once said “If they knew better, they’d do better”… The simple truth is many people don’t know better. Sometimes even good people do bad things. It is important to remember that if you are mistreated it is a reflection of the other person rather than of you. Do not fall into the trap of second-guessing yourself or blaming your trusting nature. Simply recognize that some people do not deserve to be in your life and move on from there. There is no need to try to “fix” things or figure out what you did wrong. Some people are just not honest or positive people, and when you encounter a toxic person, recognize them for who they are and move on.
Compassion Isn’t Always a Two-Way Street
We are always trying to grow and improve ourselves and recognize our fellow travelers as important beings. Unfortunately, the sense of compassion with which you greet the world is not always shared by others! It is important to recognize this brutal truth but at the same time not allow it to influence you to lose your compassion!
Of course, it always helps to remember that there is a flip side to these brutal truths, and the trick is to attract positive and loving people into your life. You may be amazed that once you identify the above truths they can begin to lose their power. Knowing that not everyone is good can help you enter new situations with your eyes open and reject giving your energy and attention to negative and toxic people! Use these 5 brutal truths to dismiss the negativity in the world and seek out positive and enriching people and experiences!
