50 Things I have learned in 50 years – Day 46

We are on the final countdown to my 50th birthday! I guess you can say that as I get closer to the day I am overwhelmed by a mix of feelings- excitement, sadness and bit of nausea. I am sharing the lessons I have learned during my 50 years on earth.

I know you’re thinking, ‘What have you learned about people?’ Which brings me to #46

Don’t settle….ever.

You want a good friend? Dump the shitty ones and set the bar as high as you want. You want a great guy/girl? Dump the shitty ones and set the bar as high as you want. There is no reason to think that you deserve less than what you want. The world will tell you to settle. I say, find the ones who want to be with you. You are Pygmalion and they are your Galatea. The people who love you for who you are will respect what you want. Those who don’t can move along.

Come back for the next 4 days and see what else I have learned.
