Brutal, Heartbreaking Lessons From ‘This Is Us’ That Are Hard To Hear

The greatest loves of your life might not last. Breakups and divorces are not the end of the world. Even though you might love this person, it doesn’t mean you’re meant to be with this person. It might be best for you to go your separate ways so you can grow on your own. So you can become the best possible versions of yourself. Remember, even though someone might have been perfect for you once upon a time, people can change. Relationships can change. You can still cherish the moments you’ve spent together in the past without needed to keep each other close in the future.

The people you love aren’t going to be around forever. It sucks to think about death, but you’re eventually going to be separated from the people you love. They aren’t going to be around forever and even though you can’t imagine living without them, you’ll be forced to do it someday. However, you can’t allow their loss to break you. You have to try your best to keep going, to survive through the pain, to live a life that would make them proud. And while they’re still here, make sure that you spend as much time as possible with them. Show them you appreciate them. Don’t let a moment go to waste.

Your future might not look the way you imagined it when you were younger. The dreams and milestones that you imagined reaching by this age might not have been realistic. Or maybe your desires have changed over time. Maybe you don’t want the same things you did when you were younger. Either way, there’s nothing wrong with the place you’re currently standing. You shouldn’t feel like you’re behind because your life doesn’t look the way you (or your parents) imagined. Your happiness is the main concern. As long as you’re in a good space, then you shouldn’t feel like you’re in the wrong space. 

You can’t run from your past forever. Even though you might think that you’ve overcome some of your issues from your childhood, there’s a chance that they might come up again in the future – unless you take the time to examine your feelings, accept them, and learn how to deal with them. You can’t run from your problems forever, and you can’t distract yourself forever. Eventually, you’ll need to overcome your demons and come up with healthier coping mechanisms so that you can live the fullest life possible.

You can’t predict what will go wrong in life. Some obstacles are going to catch you off guard. You won’t be able to see them coming, which means you won’t be able to prepare for them. No matter how hard you try to do the right thing and be a good person, bad things are still going to happen to you. However, you can get through it. You can make it through, just like you have a million times before. You are stronger than you realize. You can endure more than you know.
