Things I’ve learned in my early 20s
1. Promises don’t mean a thing. Words are easy to say but so hard to contain. If you’re not meant to keep it, don’t even start with it.
2. To love and be loved is the greatest feeling in the world. But to lose the once requited love, that is the worst. When things don’t work out, never put the blame on love, ever.
3. Forgiving others is a whole lot easier than forgiving yourself. Practice being nice, especially to yourself.
4. Smiling is the bravest and even the most pretentious act a person can make. Either way, smile!
5. Being a realist is far much better than being an optimist. But dreaming creates vision, and later on, a mission. So, know when to implement being a realist or an optimist.
6. Knowing the importance of time is great but stressing too much about time wasted is redundancy at its finest.
7. Other people always have something to say about you. If you feel bad about it, do something to fix it and then just let it go.
8. Society has taught us not to be weak and vulnerable. But if you feel like crying, go ahead and cry. Let it all out. Don’t suppress it just because society wouldn’t like it.
9. Rain has a way of preventing us from fulfilling a task. The rain may delay, but don’t let it stop you.
10. Believe in yourself, always. Sometimes you just have to be your own savior.
11. Always pray because God never fails to listen.
12. Understanding is hard but do it anyway.
13. Being evil is easy. Being good is hard. Choose wisely.
14. Pain blocks out all the good feelings. Embrace pain and let it all out. Sooner or later, everything will just followthrough.
15. Be passionate about something, anything! This will give you happiness in ways you can’t ever imagine.
