🌻3 Life lessons for a better life ( SIMPLY UNFORGETTABLE)


I previously came across something that Melanie Robbins (an American lawyer, TV host and motivational speaker) said that stuck with me until this day. I was at a point in my journey of making huge decisions that would affect the trajectory of my life, and I was feeling very lost.

I believe many of us will go through this at some point in our lives, whether be it in a relationship, our own personal journey of self-discovery, work, family etc.


The 3 simple life lessons by Mel Robbins provided me with the much-needed clarity that I believe could be helpful to so many people facing crossroads.

Here are the 3 life lessons:

If they wanted to, they would.
No response is a response.
Not everyone has the same values, the same goals or the same heart that you do.
Anxiety comes from a place where we aren’t being prioritised or valued

If you think about it, why would you want to be in a relationship, have toxic friends or even do a job in which you are not being prioritised or valued? If your input is being undermined and belittled, why would you stay?

Why do you need to be the one initiating the follow-up text, email etc every single time?

Clearly, you are not a priority to the other party despite you making them your priority.

If they wanted to, they would.

No response is a response

Oftentimes, we think we need a response for everything that we ask. The reality of life is that sometimes we just don’t get a response. We may get ignored or even ghosted.

Yes, there could be extenuating circumstances that cause a lack of response. But for the most part, if you have done what you needed to do and left a good impression, be it a relationship, business venture, job search, or life decision, and was reciprocated without a response, it’s not your fault. Don’t give up, brush yourself up and get back up.

It is not the end of the world.

Not everyone has the same values, the same goals or the same heart as you do

Many people assume that because they have values, goals and principles in life, others around them will, as well. The reality is everyone has their own upbringings, hangups and shortcomings.

You can only do the best for yourself around you and hopefully, this will rub on to those around you.

Don’t let others dictate your value or your worth. Choose to have your own value and worth, even if it means walking alone on your journey and being away from the crowd.

At the end of the day, the cool kids will become irrelevant, the projects will be forgotten, and the toxic work environment will become inconsequential, so do what works best for you.

Final thoughts

Every day we have a choice, to live our best life in an honourable way pressing forward or being stuck in our previous hangups. I choose to press on forward in life.

Sometimes you don’t get what you want because you deserve better.
