20 Rules to Live By

Based on some other great quotes, life advice from remarkable authors, and of course, based on my own experiences, here are 20 rules I do to live by. You don’t need to agree with this all, your life is your own rule, but I hope at least, it will inspire you to define yours. Enjoy the blog!

  1. Expectation kills your happiness. Set your goals, focus on it but keep your expectation low;
  2. Pick your battle. You don’t need to reply every argument coming to you and you don’t need to be angry for all the things irritating you. Save your energy to fight for something worthy;
  3. But then it’s okay to be angry, as long as the anger gives you more benefit over the harms it may bring;
  4. Say exactly what you mean, ask instead of assuming, and always remember: people are not mind reader!
  5. You can’t please everyone and you don’t have to do that at all. So stop trying so hard to be a ‘people pleaser’;
  6. You don’t need to be friends with ALL people on earth. Having haters is normal, especially if you happen to be an awesome one 😉
  7. Find your happy place, because sometimes, happiness is simply being in the right place. However, at the end of the day, happiness is in your hand. You only need to find a place which suits you the best;
  8. Love yourself first. It’s okay to spend money for decent foods, nice clothes, holiday trips, or any other things those make you happy. Reward yourself for all of the hard works you’ve done;
  9. Don’t be afraid to say “yes” or “no”. Be a brave one!
  10. Every human on earth has fear inside their heart, but the brave people will fight their own fear in order to shape their own destiny;
  11. If it feels wrong, don’t do it. But if it feels right, then you’ve got to do it for whatever it takes;
  12. Dream, believe, and make it happen!
  13. Let go of the things that you can’t control, but before that, make sure that you have given all of your best fights;
  14. Stay away from negative people. Don’t be with someone who doesn’t appreciate your efforts and constantly make you feel bad about yourself;
  15. Find a couple of friends whom you can trust to share your life with. Keeping all of those burdens alone will drive you crazy;
  16. If a guy keeps making you wondering how he feels about you for months, then it’s time to move on. If he really wants you, he will make it obvious. At the end of the day, you won’t want to be with someone who doesn’t want you back;
  17. Think before you speak. Your words will be the sword who kill you back. It’s not easy, but doable;
  18. Learn to forgive. No matter how good they are, their flaws will eventually hurt and break your heart. They’re not perfect, and neither you are;
  19. No matter how cruel and horrible this life is, never ever give up on being a good person. Don’t do revenge, don’t blame people for your mistakes, try to be honest, sincerely help the others and do the right things even when nobody is watching;
  20. At the end of the day, no matter how hard you try, you will never ever be a perfect person. However, never stop doing your best! You don’t need to be perfect, but you’ve got to be awesome!
