The chase, thrill, adrenaline, electric feel, excitement,  ecstasy that leaves you wanting more, and  driving fast cars, swimming in trenches, taking risks whilst living in the moment is youthfulness for us.  The freedom we have and the unaccountability of our actions is the force that tilts us to all the devil dare adventures. We want to live a life  to be remembered after we have moved to the afterlife. We are so scared of dying without living we fail to realise the purpose of our existence.

Before we continue fierce and fearless exploration, let's bear in mind, there are bad people in this world. They purposely harm others and reap satisfaction from their inhumanity. Your pain gives them pleasure. In this light we should be more cautious in our adventures. Despite the world hosting bad people, there are also good people. Let the harshness of others not make you immune to the emotional needs of others. Be kind and gentle to all.

Not  everyone likes you neither do you, don't pretend! The world is a unique and curious place with complex human beings. Don’t dwell upon their negativity or try to change yourself to conform to their expectations. Be your best you and find joy in knowing that there are people who appreciate and love you just the way you are.

“Life no balance” If you are fair to someone, don't expect them to be fair to you.  You can do everything right, and still, sometimes things will go wrong. This is one of the complexities of life. And there is nothing you can do about it except continue to put your best foot forward.
The world doesn’t owe you anything. Through hard work everything is achievable. Forget about how your family treats you, the society isn't your family. There are so many grey areas in life other than black and white. As children we learn everything is black and white but it is not. Not everyone can be a star football player or a billionaire, for example.
Always remember bad things happen to good people. Sad things will happen to you at various points in your life. You will endure trials and tribulations that will shake your resolve, make you do things you criticised. Friendship will dissolve. A trusted confidante will betray you. You will lose a prized possession. Someone close to you will die. These are inescapable realities of life. What matters is how you react to these different situations. You are a fighter, a conqueror. Your problems are here to make you better.
In the end, when the mirage of our excitement is uplifted and we have a clearer view of our purpose, reality dones on you. For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under the sun. A time to be born, a time to die; a time to plant, and to pluck up what is planted; a time to destroy, and a time to heal.
