19 Things I've Learnt In 19 Years

  1. You cannot please everyone. 
  2. Pretending you’re someone you’re not in order to fit in will make you feel lonelier than being yourself and being alone. 
  3. Everyone has their own issues and difficulties. 
  4. If you try hard enough, you’ll be successful eventually. 
  5. When things go wrong, everything else tends to go wrong with it. 
  6. Starting the day with a negative mindset will make the day a bad one. 
  7. Being alone is okay. 
  8. There is no use worrying about things you cannot change. 
  9. Life goes on. Seriously, no matter how awful you feel the world will carry on around you. 
  10. You’re not always in control of every aspect of your life. 
  11. It’s okay to have a day where you accomplish nothing. 
  12. Don’t give up on your own personal morals, values, thoughts and dreams. They make you. 
  13. The thinkers get the furthest in life. 
  14. You’re your own best friend. 
  15. It’s okay not to be okay. 
  16. Getting drunk isn’t always all it’s cracked up to be. 
  17. You don’t always have to be happy and outgoing and loud to do well. 
  18. No matter how bad a situation is, it will end. 
  19. You can do this, no matter how many times you tell yourself that you can’t.

    Definitely very wise for your age! Number 15 is one I have only recently learnt, and I’m 30.

    Hayley, you are wise beyond your years! I couldn’t agree more that starting the day with a negative mindset is a sure fire recipe for disaster! You are also completely right that there are often so many more fun things to do than getting drunk, I will admit that I do go out occasionally, but the fact that I do it so infrequently makes the times that I do go out more enjoyable! This post is absolutely spot-on, well done you!

      I’m exactly the same! I don’t get drunk very often but when I do I really enjoy myself and I don’t see anything wrong with that 😊. Thanks lovely! Xxx
