14 Things to Know

  1. Having a positive outlook is half the battle. No one wants to hear someone talk about the negative aspects of life. If you deal the cards your holding, instead of wishing you could play others, you might not win the game, but at least you are not losing by default.
  2. The people you surround yourself have a direct impact on how you  feel. If they are not making you feel appreciated, loved, or accepted, then why are they considered your friends anyways?
  3. Do not go back to old loves just because they are all you know. Doing the same thing over and over probably will not get you any new results. It is exhausting to relight a flame that has burned out so many times before.
  4. Distance can cause two people to grow apart and that is okay.
  5. There are friends that you gossip with, shop with, stage those cliche Instagram pictures with, but there are also the friends who will be there at 3 am when you text them in need of reassurance. Make sure you distinguish the differences between these people early on.
  6. Holding onto anger will only cause you to grow bitter. If someone shows you why you should not trust in love, love even more. If someone does not like who you are, be who you are even more.
  7. You might not have everything figured out right now. Whether that means you can not decide on a college or what you want to do for the rest of your life, you need to establish that the period of transition is completely necessary to get where you are going.
  8. Become your own best friend. Have your own back. Dance in front of the mirror to Justin Bieber. You do not need someone else to validate your worth.
  9. You will sometimes miss the people who hurt you. This is not a bad thing. This means that you loved with all your heart and there is still love left in you.
  10. You will distance yourself from the person you used to be. If you could have a conversations with who you were last year, it probably would feel like talking to a stranger. You have grown. You have learned.
  11. If you are liked by someone who is unkind to others, it says a lot about you.
  12. Dance. You look stupid, but not as stupid as the ones who refuse to dance.
  13. Go after what you love. Play the odds. You have to take bold risks in love if you ever want something good to come from it.
  14. Timing mist likely will never be on your side, but you have to trust in it. There are reasons why things do not work out. Timing will not only make you close company with the past, where you did not work out, but the future, where you will meet the reasons why it never did.
