Some I can think of in my head:

1) You're not as special as you think you are, and people don't really care about you as much as they appear to say
2) Never wait for someone to help you
3) Inequality does and will always exist, and you will not always be given a fair chance in a lot of things
4) You can learn a lot by helping others

Even if you are lead off the well worn path, it will always work out for you.

My track record for getting through bad days has been 100%, and that's a great result

I'd say I'm still learning this:

It's okay to not have your **** together every second of every day.

1) You have to love yourself before you can really love other people
2) Stick up for what is right because silence condones inequality.

I'd like to think I've learnt alot already, but it's only until you see your parents and they say that classic line..."you still have so much to learn"..

Until that moment though...

What is the best life lesson you have learnt?
Preach on the parent thing!!!!

But in all seriousness, most important lessons I've learnt (all within the last 6 months due to my gap year).

1) You are worthy of all the good that happens to you. You have every right to grab an opportunity. You also have every right to walk away from something or someone who no longer adds to your journey. Self love is not selfish.

2) Loving and respecting yourself is essential in achieving happiness and contentment. Falling in love with yourself, and respecting yourself is far more important and long lasting. Other people will come and go, you're stuck with yourself.

3) Live your life through the eyes of your 80 years old self. When you're 18 or so, and your parents call you to grab breakfast, you are going to want to say "im busy sleeping" but your 80 years old self will regret that. So live so fearlessly, bravely and happily, that your 80 yourself self will be proud.

4) It hurts to become.

That's it really. Off course I've learnt other lessons through people and experiences but those sum all of those up. How about yourself?

The most important life lessons I've learnt are:

1)I am not special
2)The skills (any skills) I possess are absolutely useless unless I back them up with solid graft as well.
Barney taught me number 1 is a lie!

I remember nothing about GCSE IT (it was a decade ago!) other than Mr Banks repeatedly shouting 'If you emphasise everything, you emphasise NOTHING!'

"You live, you learn, and you roll with the punches." Rolling with the punches is the best thing for me. You don't realise how easy something difficult is once you've done it a second and third time. This helps me get through doing anything for a first time.

One of my most recent life lessons is - never invite a guy in for a 'cup of tea' after he walks you home. Apparently 'cup of tea' = sex. Oops. I assume that it applies to coffee too - watch out ladies! Hot drinks are euphemisms...
