[rebelmouse-image 18355765 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Learning that life ain't easy is always a lesson learned the hard way. There are so many hard truths in life we all never come to grips with until it's smacking you in the face like a jilted lover. We all want to believe that we'll acquire knowledge through learning and peace and tranquil epiphanies spoken to us loving by Oprah but, that is a dream! Hell THAT is your first life lesson. There are so many simple truths we gather that you have to wonder... how did I not realize this already? Life can be deceptively simple though.

Redditor _Economy_Cactus needed everyone to share... What is something you had to learn the hard way? **_Buckle up for some knowledge y'all! **

CARPE DIEM!!

If you wait too long to hit on the person you like, somebody else will.

That I have to make changes myself. No one is going to come and do that for me.

THAT'S NOT A GOOD TINGLE...

Icy Hot is not meant for your sensitive areas.

DUH...

i was a little kid and wondered what it would be like to be stung by a hornet. I saw a hornet. Touched its backside.

To see if an iron is still hot, hold your hand an inch or two away from it.

6-year-old me put my palm flat against it.

QUICK HIDE!

The tax man doesn't simply forget you exist...

WHEN'S IT'S DONE IT'S DONE!

[rebelmouse-image 18979286 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

As much as you love someone, and as much as they love you, your relationship can still end.

You can be the wrong people for one another, but still in love.

You can be the right people for each other, but under the wrong circumstances.

And you can be the perfect people for each other, but only for a certain amount of time, not forever.

TRUTH SPEECH!

[rebelmouse-image 18979287 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

That you can't change a person, they have to want to change themselves.

SAVE YOURSELF!

[rebelmouse-image 18979288 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Someone's mental health is not your problem to fix or your burden to bear. You are not a professional and are not trained to deal with those sorts of serious things. You have your own mental health to consider first and foremost. It's not worth throwing that away for someone who calls themselves your friend but then emotionally blackmails you by threatening suicide and saying you'll be responsible for it.

It's okay to tell the person you can't handle their problems. It's okay to walk away. Whatever they do is their decision, not yours.

PERFECT IS A LIE!

No Prince charming is going to come into your life and make you whole. self worth isn't given its realized...

There are those, however, who also have a rather different list of destinations.

The places that have no intention to visit.

Be it for safety concerns, language barriers, or simply that there's nothing at these places that calls to them, there are places some wouldn’t dream of spending the time and money to visit.

Redditor TrooperJohn was curious to hear which places were at the very bottom of the list of travel destinations for his fellow Redditors, leading them to ask:
