It’s Friday: let’s throw some wisdom around! 😁 (there’s a Bitmoji for that)
I personally think it’s wisdom to learn from other people’s mistakes, instead of repeating them for yourself. Yes, for yourself. It’s like you’re “trying them out” to see if they fit. It’s also wisdom (to me) to try to pick at least one thing from each day, or as many days as you are attentive to.
Here are some (obviously, I can’t drop them all 🙄 they’re almost 8k words!) of the notes I’ve collected over the years, that I want to share 🙂 (see, I do love you):
“Life’s too short to be keeping grudges and plotting revenge. Enjoy your life and get back together as soon as possible, except if you’ll end up a disaster!”
“You know what destroys friendships? PRIDE!”
“You know what destroys relationships? LISTENING TO EVERYONE!”
“Cost-benefit analysis doesn’t apply to only Economics: it also applies to everyday life and decisions.”
“You don’t address people anyhow because you’re not in the mood. Everyone has their own problems to worry about, which you most certainly do not know. Yelling, cussing, ranting? No one needs it!”
“I still can’t understand why this generation is in such a hurry to grow up. I’m not grown, but from what I’ve seen, it’s a bit messy. Paying absolutely all your bills, working long hours, having to handle ¾ your problems alone, seriously falling in love, thinking about marriage? That’s the height!”
I don’t remember how old I was when I wrote the last one … 👀 but I still feel the same way. 😂 I have been through that “adulting” phase 😫 and I’d like it only if I were living alone. 👀
Meanwhile, I was going to do just five quotes (yes, they’re all mine! Thou shalt not copyright!), but I remembered that I don’t like odd numbers. 😬
Baaaaaaiiii! (yes, all those vowels are even-numbered) 😐🙊
Sorry, I came back. 🙊 I just read some of the notes I made relating to marriage. 😕 You’d think I’d off anyone who dared to propose. 😶 I’ve changed. A lot! 😂 I once loathed marriage! Dang! Oh, I’m not a big fan of it, just yet. 🙄
I just went back to the notes. 😶 I’m officially scarred for the night. 💀 I should go and sleep. And close the notes. 😐 Let me share one of them 😂 (withdrawal symptoms):
“A marriage of donkey years becomes boring, once the couple is claiming to be too old to be screwing, when one person has lost their dress sense, when they can’t look past the old bodies they see, when one person spends relatively too much time outside the company of the other! I certainly do not want that.”
Ok. Manuella, time to sleep!
