Life is short and with every passing day, it gets shorter. We tell our selves that we are prepared for whatever life throws at us but the question is are we really? Here are 10 things to be prepared for in life before time runs out.

I know it sounds sad, but it’s the truth. Prepare yourself for heartbreak in your life. You will be hurt and especially by the people you love the most. Once in a while you will come across a person you love the most and they will hurt, maybe not intentionally but they will. Such experiences should usually be taken positively because if they truly were meant for you they would’ve stayed in your life and now that they are not, I’m sure they left you with a lifelong lesson. Most of the time, such experiences help you to see the best in yourself or it takes you further in finding the right person.

Prepare yourself to be hurt by your friends. Not everyone you talk to or come across will be your friend in life. Most of the time people are just curious to know the latest gossip in your life. There will also come a time when your most beloved best friend deceives you and it will hurt. But you have to forgive them, always forgive them because you considered them your best friend. In life, you will come across different kinds of people, some who will hurt you and some who will be loyal to you. You have to learn to choose the right people who will add up to your worth.
