One time, when I was on my way to a business meeting, I decided to have a snack. I headed to Circle K (while it was still near the station) in the middle of a highway.
I bought a legendary sandwich. And… What you fear most when you are wearing a jacket has happened…
Oh yes, it splashed—all over my jacket… and my shirt.
“Why don’t I have a shirt with me like the Statham from Transporter,” I thought…
So I was late for a business meeting.
I’m not a child of luck (as some readers state). And sometimes I think, “Life sucks.”
It probably crosses your mind too. That’s why we are similar. And since this topic concerns both of us, I propose to talk about it.
Oh yeah, there are 9 reasons why life suck.
1. The weather is constantly changing, sometimes it rains, and it’s cold.
When I lived in England, people often said that the weather sucks. And I used to say so. Damn it; it’s raining all the time there. On the other hand, it rains even more in Lithuania, muuuch more.
However, the Eskimo would not complain about the Lithuanian weather!
On the other hand, Eskimos don’t pay rent… After all, they build igloos themselves.
So it can be said that the Eskimo has fewer problems, but what to do, how to feel when the bear visits the Eskimo?
So it’s better to live in Lithuania than near the bears.
2. There are many idiots in the world.
I like Polish food, so I ordered soup when I was in Warsaw but received a salad. Someone would be happy, but I didn’t want a salad. Despite the mistake, the waitress asked for payment. It made me angry.
So no matter how good a person you are (yes, I’m super good), sometimes you can meet idiots who don’t listen to what you are talking about. But let’s be clear; sometimes, I’m also wrong.
When I worked as a server at the Victoria Hotel, a disaster happened. Imagine I poured a cup of hot water over a client’s hand. So far, I can’t believe it, but I did it. Oh my word, how upset the client was… She raised her voice!
As you can see, sometimes I suck too.
Everyone sucks at times.
Some people suck at times, and others always.
For example, the government sucks, and Congress sucks. And unfortunately, you can’t change it, so there are three options left:
a) Be sad,
b) Go to Congress yourself and become a person who sucks,
c) Just live your life recognizing that life suck.
3. Your body gets tired sometimes (biological problem).
The body is an instrument of the soul that needs to be recharged sometimes because we use energy during the day. When the body feels tired, our brain screams, “Go to sleep, go to sleep!” We feel nervous, and the least we want is to be criticized by passersby; otherwise, we will want to crush the commentator to the table like flies. In other words, fatigue affects our mood. And when we’re in a bad mood, the whole world shows us horns.
But it just seems like it.
Therefore, I suggest looking at yourself from the side more often and asking questions, “Am I tired? What if I rest?”
Unfortunately, sometimes we have chronic fatigue. In such cases, we can feel bad every day. You have to fight it. You have to take it seriously; who knows what’s making you run out of energy. Maybe a problem related to food or a lack of vitamins. Don’t forget about the depression that has long hands. Take care of yourself!
4. The law of attraction doesn’t work.
Some people say the law of attraction works. Bullshit. Sure, I wish the law of attraction worked, but that law sucks, so…
On the other hand… I admit that the law of attraction can help you understand what you want. But without planning and achieving goals, it is extremely difficult to achieve your goals. For example, I tried to use the power of thought and nail a nail to a wall without using a hammer in my hand, but there are no miracles …
“You are an idiot, Alex, the law of attraction works,” a man who has not yet achieved his dreams will write because he is too lazy to work. After working three months on their business idea, such people throw it into the rubbish, claiming that the business has failed. However, it took me over three years to become a successful marketer. It wasn’t until three years later that I received serious clients!
But few want to spend three years to make their dreams come true. It’s easier to think about dreams and wait. Unfortunately, a dream is nothing, so dreams remain dreams, and then they turn into thoughts that life sucks because it doesn’t fulfill desires.
5. People love revenge.
Many different people in the world will put sticks in your wheels, even if you give them your last bite of bread. For some, it’s entertainment; for others, it’s serious work (competitors).
Do you remember Judas? Judas’ story is very charismatic because it tells you that you can be highly generous (like Jesus), but they will still betray you. This is our world. This doesn’t mean you have to be like Judas; on the contrary, you shouldn’t be like Judas. And I won’t say precisely why. Simply put, being Judas sucks.
6. There are extremely low salaries in Lithuania.
Yes, it’s true, there are minimal salaries in Lithuania.
I worked as a server, housekeeper, and assistant in a factory. I received pennies for these jobs, so I hated them. But hard work helped me realize that I needed to change my mindset. Therefore, if you work at a bad job, be aware that this may motivate you to make meaningful and important decisions. Read books about very successful people. In the books, they talk about how they hated a poor job and decided to create opportunities for themselves.
On the other hand, when I started the company, I worked for three years for free. Once, I managed to earn 800 litas, which seemed like a lot. Then the prices for my company’s services rose above the ceiling. I have worked with the largest companies. But after 20 years of working with Lithuanian companies, I realized that I didn’t want to work with clients in Lithuania. Because their mindset is extremely narrow. So last year I sold my company (now ADFACE) and started an international company. Currently, I work with companies from the USA and the French Riviera.
7. Sometimes you lose your purpose in life.
Sometimes people lose purpose, but it always returns. You need time, and everything will be okay! We can bet! Visit my blog alexmonaco.net more often—you will get inspirational articles!
8. The person you love doesn’t behave the way you want.
Everything is clear here. You’ve already found out that all relationships suck sometimes. Because we don’t get what we want. But you shouldn’t expect too much from the world and other people. Because the truth is that even we rarely give ourselves what we need. Sure, we caress ourselves sometimes, but we torture ourselves a lot even though we know it’s wrong. And it sucks. But everything is temporary. Day turns to night, and then a day comes again, so don’t be sad, my dear!
9. There are many competitors in the world, so it’s hard to create something unique and exclusive.
There are millions of talented people in the world who are hard to outrun. It’s hard to do something better than Elon Musk. With so many competitors, it’s hard to create a good product, a better service. So you want to quit everything and send everyone the hell away. I feel similar too. But I try. You see, I’m currently writing a new book for Lithuanian readers called “Charged messages.”
I’ve already written 70% of the book, but I keep rewriting it. And I can already see the results. The book is maturing! This will be the best book you can receive. Of course, it sucks to work at night, and sometimes I fall asleep with my head on my desk, but that’s the only way I can stay ahead of my most formidable competitor—myself! Oh yes, I fight against myself the most. And it’s amazing!
A few more words about why life sucks
Sometimes life is extremely resourceful, so it sends us lots of challenges. And although we understand this, we sometimes react too violently. We give in to emotions. And it always seems to us that we experience more difficulties. But it’s an illusion. I know it’s hard to believe, but it’s true. Someone lost a leg right now, and someone didn’t have one at all. Someone got angry with the girl and wanted to commit suicide because of it, but he has already spread out with the same girl 22 times. It’s just that people don’t learn from their mistakes and let their emotions decide how to feel and…
Oh yes, when emotions are boiling, it’s hard to think straight, so we don’t remember how many times we thought it couldn’t get any worse. BUT THERE’S ALWAYS SOMEONE WHO FEELS WORSE!
For example, I almost broke my computer when I was little because the power went off. And I wanted to pass the final RTCW level.
And sometimes, my mom wouldn’t let me play at the computer. How do you think I felt? But now I’m laughing at myself. And I laugh at the problems that will happen in the future because I would be a rude fellow without sarcasm.
And how good…
How good it is to admit to the world that my life sucks sometimes. Because it’s true, and that’s amazing; otherwise the world would be veeeery boring. And if the world was super boring and there wouldn’t be any challenges, it would suck even more!!!
