While parents often offer some sound advice, they’re also notorious for teaching us lies we probably held on to for too long. With that in mind, Elite Daily has compiled a list of six of the very types of lies. Here they are:
Never give up. When the path before you is leading to a dead end, go ahead and give up.
Put others’ needs before your own. This is the reason many of us spent half our lives (so far) working harder on other people’s problems than our own.
Stay in school. School is great, but it’s not for everyone.
Don’t do drugs. While it should be done cautiously, experimenting with drugs is part of growing up (and learning from your mistakes).
Never take “no” for an answer. There are plenty of situations in which you should listen when someone says, “no.”
You’re perfect just the way you are. No, you are not. You have faults, and you’re better off acknowledging them.
