The Saddest Truth About Life


People (including you and I) do not change when you give them an option. They change when there is no option.

Tell a person to study, he won't do until last few hours before exam.
Tell a person to quit smoking, he wont until he coughs out blood.
Tell a person to change his attitude, he won't until his girlfriend leaves him.
Tell a person to work hard in office, he won't until he has a warning letter.
Tell a person to love his parents, he won't until the parents are admitted in hospital.
Tell a person to be less stubborn, he won't until he loses everything to stubbornness.
Tell a person to be more expressive, he won't until his crush has got engaged.

Silver lining: Change while you still have time.

  1. Change is easy to say but hard to do so I guess that's why most people resist it. Another silver living though? Knowing that change is necessary is already half the battle!

  2. You can make the decision that you want a better life and change anything that you don’t currently like, but it starts with a decision. So, where do we start?

  6. This is the sad truth about life and it's heartbreaking, isn't it? Why wait for the world come crashing down when you can stop it before it even happens? We all need to realize this before it's too late.

  8. This is so sad but so true. Even if I change for a little while I always end up back to the person I was before.

  10. I still believe that life is simple but people are complicated. We are eager for a change but actually only do it with our convenience. I am guilty on this line, Tell a person to love his parents, he won't until the parents are admitted in hospital.

  12. I couldn't agree more! People change when there is no more chance or option; when they couldn't do anything more about their situation.

  15. Unfortunately some people won't realize this until it's too late and this is so sad. As Keri Russell said "Sometimes it's the smallest decisions that can change your life forever.”All you need is just to take action
