What are ten truths everyone should accept in life?

  1. It is uncertain whether or not there exists a higher power, but it's probably not any of the ones at the centres of our religions.
  2. The universe is most likely deterministic. The position of every single particle in the universe right now was pre-determined by the initial conditions of the universe. Likewise, where you are in life right now was mostly pre-determined by the initial conditions of your life. Biologically, psychologically, sociologically, financially etc.
  3. You will die some day. Forever. The sooner you can accept this, the sooner you can find subjective meaning in this objectively meaningless universe.
  4. You are unique - just like everyone else. But rest assured, 99.99% of your thoughts have been processed by someone else before.
  5. Most people in your life don't really care about you. You can try and convince yourself otherwise all you want, but deep down most people only really care about themselves.
  6. Money can, in fact, buy you happiness - but only up to a point. And that point is mental health. People who say otherwise are only trying to be seen as profound or enlightened. They've probably never had to experience real hardship; just grown people still playing pretend.
  7. There is no such thing as unconditional love, not even from parent to child. All love are bounded by some conditions - as extreme as they may be.
  8. Soulmates do not exist. Romantic love is just a chemical reaction that compels animals to breed. If you are in a happy relationship right now, chances are you would have been as happy or even happier with a different partner.
  9. Statistically speaking, you probably won't achieve your dreams or have any significant impact on the world.
  10. Most times, you're the only person who will have to live with the consequences of your decisions. So do whatever makes you happy.
