22 Life Lessons...

Sunday, June 28, 2015

Despite being 22 years young, I feel as though I have been through enough in my life and I have learned so many life lessons from my experiences.


So I have put together a list of 22 life lessons I have learned so far.

Take note, and enjoy.

1. Adults don't always know what is best for you.  Some of them don't even know what's best for themselves.  Only you know what's best for yourself.

2. Mental health is just as important as your physical health so take care of your mind.  Your sanity is important, so make sure you value it.

3. Toxic people are NOT worth it.  Drama is not worth your time, effort and energy.  Don't immerse yourself in it, and surround yourself with good people who lift you up not put you down.

4. There is nothing wrong with being nice or kind to others, but make sure you receive kindness in return.  Don't let others take your niceness for weakness, and don't let others take advantage of you.

5. It is better to have a small group of really great friends, than a large group of fake friends and acquaintances that you are not close to.

6. Being the popular kid in school isn't important, and you don't need to be liked.

7. You cannot please all of the people all of the time so don't even try.  Don't bother trying to seek validation and approval from others.

8. Don't be a follower.  Be a leader.  Don't try to be something you're not, and don't feel the need to conform to society's standards.  It won't make you happy.

9. It is okay to have your own opinion and to speak your mind.

10. Maturity does not come with age.

11. You don't need material items to make you happy.

12. Being religious doesn't mean you are better than everyone else.

13. Always humble yourself and show gratitude.

14. One size does not fit all.

15. Money and independence are very important.  Love doesn't pay the bills.

16. Labels belong on tins, products and cans, NOT people.

17. Don't believe everything you read, hear or see.  Always question and challenge what you read, hear and see.

18. Life is not a dress rehearsal.  You only have one life.  Live it!  Live and let live, and live your life for yourself.

19. Explore and embrace your passions.  Don't let anyone stifle them.

20.  No one has the right to treat you badly, no matter what/who they are.

21. Never make judgements and assumptions about others.

22.  Be yourself.  Accept yourself.  Embrace yourself. Love yourself.  Don't be fake, and don't try to keep up appearances/pretenses.  Always stay true to who you really are.
