There are times when we feel weak and vulnerable. We are unable to face the situation because we’ve been living in a blur for so long, when the head hits the wall, we don’t understand and accept the truth of life. There are some realities that no one can get away from. So here are some truths that you should know without delay:

10. Failure Precedes Success:

truth of life

Success doesn’t come easy and simply there’s no such thing as overnight success this is the truth of life. In order to be successful you have to go through many hurdles and face many challenges, sometimes you win but sometimes you lose. That loss prepares you or makes you good enough for your goal. You cannot achieve anything without failing and trying to divert that failure into a success story.

9. Being Busy vs. Being Productive:

The truth of life is that being active or working all the time would not give you success. To be successful you have to work on being efficient and be able to produce more productive results in a short period of time.

8. You Are Who Your Friends Are:

truth of life

We get affected by our surroundings and people present there. Surround yourself with people who will always inspire and motivate you, those who you can depend on. Being surrounded by such people will make you want to be the best version of yourself. This is a bitter but real truth of life.

7. You Are The Writer of Your Story:

truth of life

No, you are not a victim of the circumstances. How you are living today is all on you. You created them, it’s all on you. There often comes a time when something negative happens in your life and you think you can’t move on, because you became a victim. The truth of life is that whatever happens may be really the worst thing to ever happen to you, but how you let it affect you is all up to you.

6. Overcome Your Fears:

The truth of life will come forward when you are old and wrinkly, sitting in an arm chair looking at your past, you’ll be thinking of all the things that you should have said or done when the time and opportunity was there but you missed all those chances because of the  fear of failure. Don’t be afraid, now is the time to take risks.

8 Sentences That Will Definitely Change Your Perspective About Life

5. Forgive For Your Own Sake:

truth of life

When you are hurt, you wait for the other person to apologize so you could forgive them and get rid of that pain but you don’t have to wait for an apology to forgive them. The truth of life is that forgiving doesn’t condone their actions but frees you from the constant pain that was caused by them hurting you.

4. Live In The Present:

truth of life

Live in the now, the present. The truth of life is that you cannot be your best and reach your full potential until you learn to live in the present. There are always regrets from the past or thoughts about the future that constantly keep your mind busy. Thinking of all that, you forget to live right now, gathering more regrets for the future.

3. Create Your Own Worth:

truth of life

Don’t ever compare yourself with others, be your own unique self. No matter what people say or think about you. You should not be affected by people’s words. Be satisfied with yourself, The truth of life is that you’ll have to make your own worth and once it’s done, No words will ever bother you.

2. Life Is Short:

truth of life

A very hard to accept truth of life but no one knows when it all might come to an end. Live each day as you might not be able to see tomorrow. Remind yourself every day that each day is a gift and you should make the most of the blessing given to you.

1. Embrace The Change:

truth of life

Nothing is constant, everything changes. Life never stops for anyone, so appreciate every moment that you have. Accept the changes and move on with the moving world, otherwise everyone will be gone and you’ll be left alone in the past.

Here Are 13 False Pregnancy Myths to Help All Mothers-to-Be

There are many myths and misconceptions attached to pregnancy. Here are some of the most commonly believed in myths and reasons why they are not true:

1. Wide Hips Can Make Childbirth Easier:

When people talk about wide hips in the context of childbirth they are usually referring to a wider ilium. However, the distance between the iliac crests and the size of the birth canal are totally unrelated. During childbirth, it is the hole in the middle of the pelvic bone that counts and it can be big or small irrelevant of the size of the hips.

2. The Size And Shape Of The Belly Can Tell Whether It’s A Boy Or A Girl:

Most people try to guess the gender of the baby by looking at the shape of a pregnant woman’s belly. Although it will make things quite easier if it were true but it is not. The size and shape of the belly are affected by the size of the fetus and its position in the womb.

3. Frequent Ultrasounds Are Unsafe For The Baby:

There is no scientific backing to the myth that getting an ultrasound could harm a mother or her unborn child. People often confuse ultrasound with radiation. Ultrasound is just high-frequency sound waves which produce an image on the screen after bouncing off of the fetus and are safe.

4. It’s Bad For The Baby To Lie On Your Stomach:

The baby is well protected inside the muscular uterus and lying on the stomach would not harm it, as long as it feels comfortable.

5. Running While Pregnant Is Bad:Image result for pregnant woman running shutterstock

Becoming pregnant does not mean you should give up running. As long as you have a safe pregnancy and your doctor gives you a go ahead, it is completely fine for you to continue running.

6. Morning Sickness Only Happens In The Morning And During The First Trimester:Image result for morning sickness shutterstock

Majority of the pregnant women suffering from nausea but only a small percentage of it suffer it in the morning. It can be an all day thing and while for most women it does end after the first trimester for some it can go on until the time of delivery.

7. Lifting Your Arms Above Your Head Could Strangle The Baby:Image result

Lifting your arms around your head cannot cause the umbilical cord to wrap around your baby’s neck. In fact, none of your movements can have an effect on the position of the umbilical cord and a lot of babies are born with the umbilical cord wound around their neck and is easily removed by the doctor.

8. You Would Have To Get Rid Of Your Cat:

Cats can be the carrier of a rare birth defect causing disease called toxoplasmosis. However, this does not mean you have to say goodbye to your pet as soon as you get pregnant. It is recommended to avoid cleaning the litter box and if you do not have anyone to do it for you wear gloves while doing it and immediately wash your hands afterwards.

9. Pregnancy Is The Best Time Of The Life For All Women:

The general conception goes round that being pregnant is the happiest time in a woman’s life. In reality, many pregnant can feel stressed, afraid and general feelings of unhappiness. A small percentage of women even suffer from symptoms of depression. This can happen due to the changing hormones in a woman’s body which ultimately affect the brain and mood center. If a woman experiences depressive symptoms it should be treated as it can have adverse effects on the health of the mother and baby.

10. It Is Okay To Drink Once In A While:

When you drink alcohol while pregnant, so does your baby as it can pass freely through the placenta. This can increase the baby being born with some physical or mental birth defect. While it is hard to determine the safe amount of alcohol that can be consumed without harming the baby it is best to stay away from alcohol altogether during the course of pregnancy.

11. You Lose All Your Pregnancy Weight During The Delivery:

The extra pregnancy weight gain is due to the amalgamation of the weight of the baby, placenta, breasts, the increased volumes of blood and body fluid in the body and some extra fat. While the weight of the baby, placenta and amniotic fluid is immediately lost after the delivery, it takes a couple of weeks to lose the weight gained by fluid and also fat depending on how much you gained.

12. A C-section Is The Easy Way Out:Image result

When it comes to delivery there is no easy way out. Many pregnant women believe that a C-section is the less painful and safer way of delivery. However, in reality, a c section could be pretty painful as well the only difference is you feel the pain after the baby had been born, unlike the vaginal birth. It can also pose complications later and is only recommended by doctors when the benefits outweigh the dangers.

13. The Fetus Is Unaffected By The Outside Events:

For a long time, it was believed that babies are born oblivious to their outside environment. In truth, babies can hear sounds and recognize their mother’s voice while inside the womb. They are also able to detect light and taste the food by licking the placental wall.
