Rules and lessons of life: 150 life lessons or golden rules of life

With age, we begin to understand what was previously not obvious, doubtful or controversial. A person changes every 5-10 years, abandoning himself of the past, stupid and naive. What does life teach us and what rules should we know in advance?

Over the years, life becomes more and more alarming and upsetting. Most pop, internet and movie stars are younger than you, which cannot be oppressive. Many are richer, more beautiful, more promising, smarter and more successful than you. Dreams do not come true, there are many problems, but there is a routine around. Welcome to adulthood!

What did school, university, and other things prepare us for? Definitely not to this, what is happening around. Harsh realities throw up a lot of things that you can’t like at all. What did we not know, what did we not know how to do, and what did we not understand in time? We analyzed hundreds of opinions of adults, and then shared with you. When you're 20, learn from 30-year-olds, at 30 learn from 40-year-olds, and at 50, teach others. Experience comes with age. And dancing on a rake, repeating the mistakes of others, is an unaffordable luxury. It is better to bypass obstacles, and to use forces and time more wisely. Here are the valuable golden rules of life.
