23 Thing I Learned Before I Turned 23
With my birthday coming up in less than a week, I got this idea from a friend to write out a list of 23 things I learned before turning 23. As it turns out, 23 things is a lot of things to think about. But I managed to work it out, and I think it’s actually not a bad list to live by. Feel free to leave a comment telling me some of the things you’ve learned in your life thus far, I’m open to learning even more!
Be yourself unapologetically.
Surround yourself with people that make you laugh.
Take lots of time for self-care. It matters.
Don’t push yourself if you’re not feeling it.
Take care of yourself FIRST.
Love your body, it’s the only one you have.
Don’t give a shit about what anyone else thinks.
Don’t get down about others’ successes. You’re on your own path.
He doesn’t matter. Stop crying over him.
Kindness above everything. Always.
It’s normal to get sad sometimes.
Your feelings are valid. Don’t let anyone else tell you any different.
Never stop learning new things.
Don’t ever be ashamed of what or who you love.
Take the time to LISTEN.
Don’t let anyone change your opinion of yourself.
You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do.
Tell your friends you love them often.
Don’t let your anxiety take over your life.
LISTEN TO YOUR DAMN GUT INSTINCT!!!!!
You are strong. And a warrior. Don’t ever forget that.
Never let anyone change you.
If you need help, ask for it. Don’t be ashamed.
