None of us can ever understand life perfectly. We’re always trying to figure out a way to live it right. But have you ever thought that we might be going about it the wrong way? Take a look at 10 misconceptions we need to get rid of right away.

1. The right and the wrong.

Both of these are just a result of your over thinking and sadly, we often give into the pressure of doing the ?correct? thing whereas there is nothing that can be defined as entirely right or entirely wrong. Whatever floats your boat is just fine.

2. Work hard now and you can have fun later

I think this is the part that plays with our head the most. We are bent upon making a career, meeting deadlines, replying to work emails, thinking about further studies, financial stability and marriage. In the midst of all this, we forget to chill and have fun. We forget that yes now is the time to get a control on life, but now is also the time to fulfil everything in your bucket list.

3. Working hard is the key to life

There is no doubt about the fact that there is no substitute to working hard. But, there is a difference between working hard and working smart. Both are equally important.

4. Life should be fair

First of all, how do we measure fairness and who does it? And if life was really fair, then it would be highly predictable and utterly boring leaving us with no lessons learnt.

5. Life gets better

We all have some point in our lives have heard our best friends say this to us. This is probably the most hopeful thing to say to someone. But, honestly, life doesn?t get better. Instead, you have to make it better.

6. Being alone is the worst thing that can happen to you

Being alone and being lonely are two different things. Moreover, if you cannot be happy alone then there is no way happy you can be happy with someone else. Happiness is a state of YOUR mind and heart.

7. Love can heal everything

A relationship cannot solve your problems. Neither can it help you fix your life crisis. Of course, it?s great to have a partner who offers you unconditional support. But, at the end of the day, independence and self sufficiency are what you need the most. And believe it or not, most of us are obsessed with the belief that love can heal our brokenness. We definitely need to let go of that notion.

8. Ambition is climbing up the ladder of success

People generally associate success with pay cheques, promotion on the work front or fame. Is that correct? Maybe, maybe not. Ambition is something you believe in, something that drives you. It could be money, climbing a mountain, travelling to another country or any other thing. If it has your heart then it has you.

9. Life is a rat race

We start participating in this rat race the moment we enter school. Grades, extra-curricular activities, personal development and the list is endless and the constant need to aim for perfection. It takes a toll on you sometimes. Yes, life is a battle, but with your own self. And others are fighting their own battle.

10. You live only once

We go around screaming this phrase and seem to get it right. Well, no we don?t. We actually don?t live once, we live every day. We get a chance to start over every damn day. In short, you live multiple times, but you die only once.
