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"

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
