Breakfast Babble: 6 Unusual Things I Wish My Parents Had Taught Themselves And Me When We Were Younger

Breakfast Babble: ED’s own little space on the interwebs where we gather to discuss ideas and get pumped up for the day. We judge things too. Sometimes. Always. Whatever, call it catharsis and join in with people.


1. Considering Mental Health As Important As Physical Health

It took me years to recognize mental health as a ‘thing’ in life. Understanding the fact that we have the ability to be creative, learn, try new things, take risks, and are better able to deal with adversity in our personal and professional lives when we’re mentally healthy is the most important thing that every living being should realize. 

Anxiety, depression, ADHD, PTSD, insomnia, Bipolar disorders, and other issues must be addressed by parents and children as soon as possible so that they do not negatively impact them in the future.

2. Budgeting

Money is essentially a tool. It is important to learn that the most important debt you have is to yourself.  Investing instead of purchasing the latest and greatest can be the best decision for someone. 

We’re never taught the subtle art of saving money/ judiciously spending it and unintentionally we spend too much on things that are least important to us. Learning to spend less and saving more for your golden days might help a person worry less about his debts, for sure.

3. How To Be More Mentally Attractive

I wish I’d known not to spend so much time trying to be more physically attractive to impress your crush rather than making myself mentally attractive. 

Educating ourselves, addressing our toxic recurring thoughts, dealing with insecurities, working harder to be a better version of ourselves, and being happy on our own are considered to be Attractive.

4. Challenges Are Necessary

We are guaranteed to face hard times. We shouldn’t shy away from them. We should also be taught to embrace hard times because they really help us to learn, grow, and thrive for the better. 

Taking risks in life, being confident enough to accept challenges, and overcoming them by learning from them should undoubtedly be taught first and foremost by our parents while growing up.  

5. Embracing and Prioritizing Yourself Before Family And Friends

We’re always taught to stay with family, have a good set of people, compromise, and adjust in order to maintain those relationships for a longer period of time. But if the relationship is costing your mental health, then it’s important to think of ourselves more than anything in life. 

Our body is the closest thing we can have with us; and letting it hurt might be something we all don’t want to do, right? We should’ve been taught that prioritizing yourself is not an act of selfishness but pure self-care. Choosing yourself before anybody is absolutely fine and you really don’t need any validation regarding the same. 

6. Explore Incredibly; But Invest Your Energy Wisely

Life will throw us a lot of curveballs. We must all learn how to pick and choose our battles wisely in our early lives. In these situations, being mindful and mature, as well as caring about what truly matters, will save you time and energy while also growing you into a better person.

We rarely discuss it, but investing energy in what will actually bring you closer to your goals is one of the secrets to success in life.
