Important Life Lesson I Learned

Hey everyone! Recently I’ve been on a life journey recently and I learned a life lesson that is very important. I wanted to share this with you all because maybe you all could learn from the lessons that I experience. I love discussing life lessons with you all, it definitely allows you guys to get a better understanding of who I am as a person.

Recently, I have been trying to be a more forgiving person and I feel that this is a very mature thing to do. I used to be spiteful and I always wanted revenge on people who hurt me. Now, I am learning that holding onto that spite and anger only hurts myself mentally and emotionally. Nothing comes out of holding that anger.

You must forgive to save yourself the grief and pain of holding onto those harsh emotions. You should also learn this lesson from the Dalai Lama: “Don’t let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace.” This basically means to not allow the actions and behaviors of other people affect you because it is out of your hands. You cannot change how other people act but you can always change how you react.

It is something you owe to yourself– to allow yourself to be happy and let go of pain and anger. There are no answers in those emotions so let them go. I hope this life lesson is helpful for you all and I hope you enjoyed reading this post. Remember to subscribe for email notifications for when I post new content!

-Stay Chic,

  1. I’ve gotten my share of being hurt too. Though I’m only 21 I had to learn this the hard way. I held on to things and the ppl who continued to hurt me and it only put me into a deep depression. I tried harming myself because I couldn’t understand why the things that were happening happened and I had to realize that I needed to just let go and forgive even if they didn’t deserve it. No one cared about my well being except my fiancé and his family and I am thankful for them so much. Now things are better. Hate still come around but it’s much easier to forgive than hold on. You tend to move on faster when you do that.


    1. Thank you so much for sharing this. I can definitely empathize with your situation. Forgiveness is always thought to be for the other person when in reality it’s actually for ourselves and that is such a huge misconception. Most of us don’t learn this until we are put into a bad situation— the hard way. I wish you happiness in your future and I’m glad to hear you are cutting that negativity out of your life
