19 people share the life lessons they learned the hard way.


Life is hard and there's no instruction manual on how to figure it out.

Sometimes you just have to learn things by trying and failing. In order to spare other people from making the same mistakes they did, people on Reddit are sharing the life lessons they've learned the hard way.

Go to the dentist. Teeth don't heal, they only get worse


It's not the first time they cheated. It's the first time they got caught. Walk away. Cry. Break something, but don't go back ever.

A great pie is only as good as it's crust. A great relationship is only as good as its trust.

3. TheStinkBoy

Don’t settle, and if you get the vibe that someone is settling for you, end it. Loneliness isn’t half as bad when compared to heartbreak.


Don't sign a lease with a person you don't know and trust. I signed a lease with an acquaintance to afford a bigger apartment. Turns out he was REALLY into drugs and quit working or paying rent within 3 months.

I threw him out and had to get a 2nd job and work 70-hour weeks for the remainder of my lease to make ends meet.

Becoming a happy and fulfilled person is your own responsibility. You can't ask others to do it for you.

6. Witty-Ad4536

Don't believe what people say they are. Believe what they show you they are. I have had many people in my life who I wanted so badly to be who they said they were.

Only to completely ignore everything they showed me to be the opposite. Words are misleading. Actions absolutely are not. It's the actions that actually show us and everyone else who we truly are.

A guy called Confucius, a while back said something like the following, 'Every man has two lives, and the second starts when he realizes he has just one...'

Time is precious, and for not a one of us is it infinite.

Don't fall too fast for someone.

9. WolfOfBrokeStreett

People don't care about you, they are too busy with their own lives so do whatever you want and don't feel like everyone is judging you

10. Myrtle_The_Tortoise

Trust your gut when friends do bad things. It’s ok to leave relationships.


Family isn’t who you’re born with; it’s who always has your back.

12. Automatic-Cat-7777

don't give up on something without even trying. even if you are convinced you will fail. in life, no one will do it for you, you have to do it yourself.

13. retrowings

Don’t invite someone you barely know to your own home because you’re trying to help them get back up on their feet. I knew it was a bad idea, but I thought maybe I could help out. Never doing that again.


Make backups of your important files. I'm still annoyed that I lost my original Minecraft world back in 2011, due to the hard drive suffering a hardware-level fault.


If you don’t 100% know the answer to the 'marry me' question, do not ask it.


If s/he cheated for you, s/he WILL cheat on you.

You can't make someone love you.

18. King_Glorius

NEVER put an egg into a microwave.

19. halflife_3

You'll never be able to please everyone so don't make your life revolve around being accepted by everyone.
