Life comes at you fast — and I'm sure there are things in life that you reflect back on and wish you did things differently. Like, stressing about something minor when you're young only to get older and realize that it's not worth wasting your energy sweating the small stuff.
I recently came across this Reddit thread where u/DENNIS_System88 asked "What's your blind spot in life? Something you realized far, far too late?" Here are some of the eye-opening responses people shared.
1. "How to properly set and maintain boundaries. I should not set myself on fire to keep others warm, especially when they wouldn't do the same for me."
2. "You usually value relationships and memories far more than the people that were involved in those memories and relationships. Move on and don’t let 'the good old days' be your only good days."
3. "If you can’t talk about uncomfortable things, the uncomfortable things win and get worse."
"My boyfriend is telling me this every day and it has made my life so much easier! Also, if you have been through some shit in your life, please share it with other people. It helps you and helps others."
