6. You're probably not going to end up being famous, like you imagined you would be.

You were dreaming that you were gonna be world famous when you grew up. At least an amazing career was waiting for you. You should consider yourself lucky if you get a regular check every month and you manage to live on your own.

7. People tell you good things because they know that you want to hear them.

You were told that you are good looking, successful, decent parent... People are going to tell you these things to make you feel better. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but try to stay grounded.

There are only a few people in this world who can change their lives completely. It's not clear whether they've changed or they accepted their own reality. You may not like who you are, but accepting yourself as you are can be a good starting point.

9. You're not going to be able to change anyone.

Our advice: Do not devote yourself to changing someone. If you insist on doing that, good luck. You're not going to be successful.

10. Your children, who adored you when they were little, are not going to like you when they grow up.

Unfortunately, you can't avoid this. All you can do is let them think what they want to think, or move to the suburbs and devote yourself to your cats.

Sometimes you might wonder what they are going to do without you. Well, they are probably going to be okay. Some of them will be sad without you. Some of them will be better off. This, too, shall pass - for you and for anyone else.

13. Life is going to get back all the things that it gave to you.

You'll have friends, partners, jobs and money. Someday, you'll eventually lose most of these. Just a reminder for you to be grateful every now and then.
