Do you have rules that you live by that could apply to almost anyone else?

There is no shortage of advice about money, love, or just living fully. But some advice is just so good and concise, that it's hard to forget. Hearing a simple saying can inspire someone to turn their life around.

Redditor u/hikidemono asked people... "What's the best piece of general advice that you have?"

10. Morbid but true

"'Someday, someone you love will die, and everything else will seem totally irrelevant.'"

Totally morbid way of saying 'Life is too short to be mad/sad/stressed all the time,' but it gets to the point and it's stuck in my head."


9. A good reminder for everyone 

"Your job doesnt have to be your dream. Just be sure that it supports your dreams."


8. Really, no one is watching you 

"You are mosty invisible to people. No one cares if you did something embarassing."


7. Something in their teeth - go for it. A big stain on their shirt - let it go

"Idk if this counts but don't say anything about a persons appearance unless it's something they can change in a minute. Idk who or where I heard that from years ago but it's stuck with me"

6. It's okay to be rude

"If you have an eerie feeling about someone or something, listen to that feeling. Your subconscious might have caught a few signals that your conscious mind missed. To hell with politeness, if someone isn't taking no for an answer tell them off rudely"


5. Learn what you can

"Learn a little about a lot - some basic knowledge about multiple facets of life (auto repair, basic home maintenance, drywalling, electronic repair, ect) will come in handy more often than you know it."


4. All opinions don't matter

"Don't consider the opinion of someone you would never go to for advice."


3. Protect your wallet

"Only gamble what you can afford to lose"


"A subrule: only carry as much cash as you can afford to lose."


2. Stop procrastinating 

"Don't leave it for later, do it now."


1. Simple

"Change what you can and accept what you cannot"

What is in the water in the United States that compels people to walk around in their homes with their shoes on? Try doing that in South Korea––people would be so mortified. I have a sibling whose apartment is carpeted from wall to wall and who walks around inside with his shoes on all the time, tracking in any manner of dirt and dust from outside. Egad! I get chills just thinking about it. And as an American, it's something I've noticed people from other countries love to comment on.

We learned a lot more about things that are considered normal in other countries after Redditor monitonik asked the online community,

"What's normal in your country that's considered weird in others?"

The brain a fascinating part of the body. No, its the most fascinating.

Scientists have said for years that we'll never know all about the brain and its functions.

So if it is so fascinating and so capable and awesome... why does it stall? Why does it overload?

Why aren't we all gifted with photographic memory? The brain definitely has a full storage issue. And we all suffer.

Redditor u/MABAMA45 wanted everyone to fess up to and just embrace all the things the brain can't handle by asking:

What can your brain just not comprehend?

Going to college is an exciting experience. You meet new people, learn about the world and the inner workings of society, and make lasting friendships. As fun (and expensive *cough, cough*) as higher education can be there is a reason that only one-third of the US population 25 and older have been able to complete a four-year degree program. It is hard and burnout is real.

Going through university was filled with both happiness and sometimes tears for me. I loved school and found my classes interesting, dove into extracurriculars, and had that perfectionist drive to get all A's... totally not sustainable. It hit me I was totally burnt out about two years in while enrolled in an algebra class.
