Life is about making mistakes and learning lessons so that we can improve and do better. But some lessons are easier to learn than others. Mzansi social media users took to Twitter to share the lessons they learnt the hard way.
Twitter user saucy_marie said:
"#ILearntTheHardWayThat Online shopping is a scam. The outfits only look good on the models that advertise them. What you expect isn't the reality after trying on the outfit purchased"
While Sisathinomatye said they learnt that nobody in this life owes you anything. There's no time for pity parties and no one else is living for you.
"The sooner you realise this, the better"
Twitter user Poelano Setwaba said that no matter how hard you try, you can't please everyone and still be happy with yourself!
"One has got to give and I'd urge you to please yourself 1st and always!"
