What are some things you realize as you get older?

1.About study and work

1.1 When I was a child, I was troubled by whether to choose Harvard or Oxford when I grew up. Now I find that I don’t have to worry about it. I didn’t pass any exam.

1.2 When I was 20 years old, I believed that the salary of my first job didn’t matter and I should never give up my ideal for the sake of money. After I worked, I found that with money, I could be more motivated to realize my ideal.

1.3 When I was young, I believed that young people should work overtime until the early morning, and I would thank myself for my efforts one day in the future. Now, I find that don’t regard overtime as hard work, it can only prove that you are inefficient.

1.4 I wrote on the blackboard at the age of 20: don’t forget your original heart and forge ahead. Now I realize the only criterion for testing truth is to practice. The “original intention” has already been overthrown, which is not reliable.

2. About love

2.1 I used to think that only when I became a better self, I would meet better people. When I grew up, I realized that love is not upgrading that the more you pay, the more you get.

2.2 I used to think that love was his obedience to me. When eating hot pot and barbecue, he was responsible for cooking, and I ate. When I grow up, I realize that is not love. Love is when we quarrel, he is angry and goes out but comes back later with my favorite cake.

2.3 Before, I thought that I could have no reservation in front of him. Now, I think love needs secrets and freshness.

3. About life

3.1 After growing up, I realize that there is nothing more important than life.

3.2 When I was 20, I thought that the things that didn’t kill me would make me stronger and pain was wealth. Now I find that pain is a hurdle that I have to pass, not a medal of life.

3.3 I used to think that crying bitterly late at night was life. Now—“Isn’t it good to go to bed earlier? I have to work tomorrow to pay the rent!”

3.4 I finally reached the age I wanted to be when I was a child, but I didn’t become the person I wanted to be.

3.5 When I was a kid, I believed that everyone was equal. Now, I realize that it is just the ideal situation we wish for.
