Life is full of love, success, growth and realization of dreams. We all believe in this thought since this is comforting and gives hope. However, there are certain harsh yet true realties of life that almost all of us deny until they hit us hard. It is no doubt, good to have a positive frame of mind towards life but you can’t ignore the essence of life. Here are a few unpleasant truths of life that we all are aware of but accept only partially.
External beauty is really a blessing
Everyone agrees that beautiful people always get an advantage in life. People love them when they are toddlers, they get more proposals when they are young and employers love to hire them. It is certainly true and we experience the same in our lives. This is in fact realty that attractive people are more successful in life as compare to their not so attractive counterparts. They make a lot of money and live a healthy life. Contrary to what most of us believe, people find them trustworthy too.
There is no altruistic love
We all are selfish in one way or another; we project ourselves in front of the other person in many different ways. Even our so-called friends have their self-interests. You do something for your friends and in return they are there to support you when you go through a rough phases in your life. You must be well aware of the ongoing craze of building a social network, which no doubt works wonders. The need to have a social network has to do with fulfillment of your selfish means primarily. Everything else comes along.
We all are alike
If you feel that you are a unique creation of universe, it is your misconception. To your amazement, the very moment when you entertain a particular thought there are millions of people who have a similar thought on their minds. It sounds a little disappointing as well as gratifying to a certain extent, but is true. Those people who claim to find their true soul mates can actually find many more like their partners. This may be a matter of coincidence.
Life is the most valuable possession
You may get your dream job, earn a lot of money, get married to the love of your life and live in your dream house. However, this all can come true only if you are alive and healthy for many years to come. Life has no comparison with any possession in the world. Life is priceless and the suddenness of death makes it even more valuable. This is the biggest realty of life and we all are well aware of it. Even then, we ignore the fact.
We are rolling with the punches
Most people spend their whole life figuring out what they are meant to do. Experts have their own doubts and they hardly reveal the fact since they find it hard to acknowledge the fact. Our teachers, parents, thinkers and philosopher are no different. We are sailing in the same boat. Who know everything in realty; we all claim to but are well aware of the fact.
Success comes slow and easy
If you work hard today you get the results later in your life. You can never expect to get lucky overnight. Look at the lives of successful people. You would find that either things were meant to be like this or they worked hard which made them successful eventfully but it always takes lifetime to realize their dreams.
Pain and sufferings of the real world
When we sit in our cozy living rooms trying to make sense out of a movie that is based on fiction there are people who are dying of hunger. Poverty, extortion, human trafficking, loss of loved ones, rapes and murders have made this world a living hell. This is realty of the world but we hardly accept the truth.
It is true that if we are caught in the moment we can hardly move on in life but denying can never be the solution. Everything in the world has a different face to it and we must accept the realty.
