21 Things I Learned at 21
Here are a list of the tips, tricks, and life hacks to keep you healthy, happy, and humble by the time YOU turn 21.
1 • If you try to make everybody happy, you’ll end up making nobody happy. Including yourself.
2 • Don’t be afraid to ask. Worst case is you will get a no. But if it’s a yes, the upside is much greater!!!
3 • Blood isn’t always thicker than water.
4 • You will always care about the people you once loved.
5 • Embrace your inner child.
6 • You NEED to get rid of the toxic people in your life.
7 • If someone wants to walk out of your life, let him or her and don’t look back, trust me on this one.
8 • Sometimes the hardest person to be honest with is yourself.
9 • You will never run into your ex when you’re feeling cute. You will run into them in a parking lot, exhausted with no makeup on, almost completely worn-the-fuck-out.
10 • The grass isn’t greener on the other side. The grass is green where you water it.
11 • When it’s after 2:00 a.m. just go to sleep. Because the decisions you make after 2:00 a.m. are the wrong decisions – How I Met Your Mother.
12 • There’s a huge difference between growing up and aging.
13 • On the really hard days, take life 5 minutes at a time.
14 • You are not obligated to validate your life or your relationships on social media.
15 • A day spent doing something you love, even if it’s binge watching series on Netflix in your pyjamas, is not a wasted day.
16 • Back up your files. Always, always, always backup.
17 • Never think you’re the exception, because nobody is.
18 • You are the person you’ll spend the majority of your time with. Make sure you like your company.
19 • Real change usually comes in the form of painful life experiences that leave you forever altered.
20 • Grades really aren’t that important, put your health first, always.
21 • Getting older sucks so don’t wish your life away.
