50 things i know to be true (34 is underrated)

In the journey of life, I have come to realize that every face, every color, and every pattern reveals a story, a lesson, or a memory. But amidst this immense diversity, there’s a need we all share: the search for truth. What are those truths? What is truth? Those warm, unwavering beacons that guide us when life’s storms roll in?

Truth is the soft lullaby that puts a child to sleep, the aged hands that have seen decades yet still hold with the same tenderness, and the reassuring smile from a stranger when you’re lost in a crowd. It’s in those fleeting moments of pure joy, the heartaches that shape us, and the shared stories that bridge the gaps between us.

This article is more than just words on a page. It’s a tribute to the shared humanity that binds us, a collection of 50 timeless things I know to be true; truths that resonate deep within our hearts. As we grow and go through the ebbs and flows of existence, these truths serve as reminders of what truly matters. They are the landmarks on our personal maps, guiding us toward understanding and connection.

 

I. Personal Values and Beliefs

  1. Honesty builds trust.
    • Remember when you were young, and you broke that vase? It was the confession, not the act, that made your parents hug you tighter. Truth might sting, but it lays the foundation of trust. It’s like glue, binding people together in ways that deceit never can.
  2. Kindness is never wasted.
    • Even the smallest gestures, like giving your seat to an elderly person on the bus or helping a neighbor with their groceries, plant seeds of warmth. Years later, they might remember that glint of kindness when the world seemed gray.
  3. Intention matters.
    • It’s not just the action but the heart behind it that counts. Buying a gift is lovely, but buying one because you remembered a casual chat about their favorite author? That’s love.
  4. Family and friends are invaluable.
    • Think of those lazy Sunday brunches, the laughter, the arguments, and the silent moments. These bonds, crafted through time, are the safety nets we often take for granted.
