43 of the major life traps that can destroy someone’s life, told by members of this online community
Humans are by nature social beings. This is our great advantage, as it is largely due to social relationships that we have come a long way from animals to modern society. This is also our great shortcoming, because over the centuries we have accumulated hundreds and thousands of different life traps that people fall into on a regular basis.
Since mankind lives according to the so-called principle of “collective agreements”, practically every phenomenon, everything in our life is the product of agreements between those who think about it. For many years people have known perfectly well that they must learn from the mistakes of others.

I can’t believe I haven’t yet seen you embroiled in a land battle in Asia or fighting the Sicilians when death was imminent.
Marrying, living with, or otherwise committing to someone who is mean to you and doesn’t treat you well.
Obsession with physical appearance.
This has haunted me my whole life and I have never been happy with the way I look.
Having kids bc society said it should.
While there is nothing against children, parents, etc., in most regions/cultures the pressure from families and religions to have children is immense. You should explain if you did (or didn’t).
Someone else is already doing it, so you think you’ve run out of time to do something.
Someone was there to pick up the slack or stay on top of you to get something done so we could do it more like kids.
But as an adult, the consequences of waiting for things hit you hard.
I think too much about what other people think of me or how I am perceived. I think this goes hand in hand with self-esteem, but when I let go of my fear of judgment, I started feeling a lot better about myself.
We listen too much to others and not enough to ourselves. Remember that you are the one who must live with you and your choices.make sure you are happy with them
My grandfather gave me only one piece of advice. God, please rest his soul. “There are three things in life that can ruin you: 1. Drugs, quit drugs, 2. Quit gambling, 3. Good women are very important, and bad women can ruin your life forever.” May be ‘truth.
One of the biggest traps in life is not picking yourself up after making a mistake. Let go and sink into the abyss. Depression sinks in and you start losing everything. Seeing a loved one through this is extremely heartbreaking. They feel they have nothing left to live for, so they stop caring and commit suicide. Less is not better. It is better to be with people who adapt and live better. ❤️
IMHO, I believe that life ends at the age of 20, 30, 40 and there is nothing you can do but adjust to family life as soon as possible.
By far the biggest thing is that you live in a contented existence because it is rooted in your self-esteem and fear of anything based on change. Forcing behavior with an open mind (small things like trips to the library, cooking a meal you’ve never tried, big things like applying for a new job, trying out new hobbies with other new people) is a way to stay youthful and above all soulful. Complacency does not often offer new insights, benefits, or bright energies, so it eventually reaches levels that are uncomfortable for ourselves and those around us.
It may sound generic, but when was the last time you tried something for the first time? Food, places, books, travel.
Less complacency = more soul
Fear of missing out (FOMO).
Fear of not measuring.
Comparing yourself to others leads to self-destruction.
To believe that what people tell you about yourself is true.
You consider your “education” completed in high school or college.
Your inability to understand your darkest secret, the one that holds you hostage and shames you, is what everyone else struggles with.
“The most personal is the most universal.”
That huge box supported by sticks. Beneath that is pizza, and pizza is delicious, but being under the box when the stack falls is frustrating.
too philosophical. If you keep getting: what’s the point of life? why do you do this? And so on… It’s really depressing overall. Yeah life sucks sometimes. And what? Then don’t think too much, because nothing will change. What I’m trying to say is that overcoming all of that is an important starting point. you may have made a mistake.bro just live your current life
