20 harsh life lessons everyone should learn in their 20s

  1. Your career won’t be as smooth sailing as you expected.
  2. You WILL have a heart break. Be ready for it.
  3. People are mean, and they will try to take advantage of you everywhere. You have to learn your lessons by falling hard.
  4. One day you will feel like you’re at the top of the world and other days you shall find yourself at rock bottom. Mood swings are very common.
  5. The ones you will miss the most will be your school friends and NOT your girl friend.
  6. Life is NOT as easy as you expected and NOT as difficult as others projected.
  7. Sex is overrated (If you haven’t already ‘experimented with your sexuality’ till then).
  8. Girl friends are more overrated than sex!
  9. You will surely remember the few people whom you left or betrayed in the quest of success and ‘better opportunities’. You learn about the best opportunity only after you ‘Miss’ them!
  10. At night, before going to bed, you will realize that we all are ‘alone’.
  11. Do you know about the ‘worst lie’ ever uttered? It’s that life starts after school. Dear friend, life ends and struggle starts!
  12. There are more qualified, more deserving, more handsome ,intelligent, charming people around than you ever imagined. After leaving well of ‘college’ and getting into ‘ocean’ of life, you will become more humble!
  13. You will realize that your ‘salary’ isn’t just a number in your bank account, it is the certificate of your worth and your ‘dating’ or ‘Marriage’ Quotient!
  14. You will realize that life is bi-sexual. It sucks and fucks simultaneously!
  15. Your girlfriend’s behavior is dependent on your appraisals and future prospects. Losing your well paying job is always a double edged sword! You may need to search for both : A new job and a new girl friend!
  16. You will realize that your girl friend ‘Loves you unconditionally’ …well as long as you get this SMS every month . ‘ Your account 628xxxxxx109 is credited with 80,129/- INR’.
  17. You (most of you) will realize that ‘engineering’ is NOT the best option in this world!
  18. Your boss’s ‘Ass’ is the tastiest thing most of you colleagues know!
  19. One time, ‘sex’ or ten times ‘sex’ does NOT guarantees a girl’s loyalty! Those days have passed when a ‘girl’ will give her everything to his ‘soulmate’ only!. It might be that your boss also knows a bit about the mole on your girlfriend’s back and that secret ‘tattoo’ about which you thought only you knew about!
  20. You will realize that all those points written above does NOT apply to every one equally and exceptions are there to rule you and me out!
