What are the harsh life lessons everyone should learn in their 20s?

 Harsh life lessons

1) Nobody cares about you. You are the only person who can take care of you and the only person who know you better, so make your priority list and put yourself at the top.

2) Best Friends forever is a myth. Get up and accept the fact, with time everyone(including you) change, many will leave you and you will leave many. People will come into your life, play their role and leave with time, so don’t get too much emotionally attached.

3) The Reason you are able to live your life till now is your family. They are the silent protector. Talk to your parents as much as you can, they should be on your priority list after you and then Rest of the world.

4) Don’t compare yourself with others. Everyone is unique in their own way. You only know about their current position, not about the path.
