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?

1) It ultimately doesn't really matter what other people think of you - i still struggle with mild social anxiety issues at times though

2) Life can change in an instant - the smallest events can long lasting and far reaching consequences.

That it's a dog eat dog world, and that we are all in competition to survive and self gratification. Humanity is naturally inclined to be selfish it's part of our innate survival tactics.

Words like love, trust, generosity etc are all comfort words that allow us to feel this false sense of security built by society while we masquerade in pretence that life is worth living, and that love and sharing is a real entity, but the reality is that since birth we all in this for ourselves and these are just words that are inept to our everyday lives.

No matter what happens, and how hard things get, you will ALWAYS make it through. Nothing that is thrown at you is too much to handle. You'll always get through it and be stronger in the end.

Silence is a friend that NEVER betrays you. I know the truth of that all too damn well.

The secret to a successful life is active participation in the world. It's easy to be passive, to accept the things society gives you, to live in your home town and work 9-5, but your life can be full of adventure and achievement, if you choose it to be that way.

It's a matter of taking risks because you truly believe you're worth the opportunity.

Self assessment. You can always do things to make yourself a better person. It could be in regards to studying, work, relationships, pretty much any aspect of your life.

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.
