If I Would Have Known…

If I could give a list to my younger self…although in all honesty I probably wouldn’t have listened anyways.

  • Don’t get so busy making everyone around you happy that you forget to make yourself happy.
  • It is not your job to fix everyone’s problems
  • It is okay to say ‘No’ and not over extend yourself
  • High school is nothing like the real world
  • Occasionally your parents do know some things…
  • Doing the opposite of what everyone else is doesn’t mean it’s the right thing
  • You don’t need a partner to be complete, complete yourself
  • What you see in the mirror is distorted
  • You are beautiful
  • You are skinny (please eat something!)
  • Your parents aren’t trying to torture you, they love you
  • Only you can make you happy
