19 Things I have Learned in 19 Years

Last year when I turned 19, I wrote a blog post called 18 things I have learned in 18 Years (https://thelifewedreamof.com/2017/09/26/18-things-i-have-learned-in-18-years/). It really made me evaluate this past year, and thought it would be nice to reflect on my year as a 19-year-old. So here are just a few things I have learned.

  1. Being cynical is just a way to deny your feelings
  2. You truly deserve happiness
  3. If someone can’t see your worth, then they aren’t worth being in your life
  4. Things will never happen the way you planned them too
  5. Do not compare yourself to others
  6. Just because you aren’t like everyone else, doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with you
  7. Perfection isn’t worth it
  8. Drink water
  9. Push yourself out of your comfort zone
  10. Be there for others
  11. Get your priorities straight
  12. Practice self-care
  13. Appreciate moments that bring you closure
  14. Know that you are enough
  15. You will find someone who will love you, just not right now
  16. Not being in a relationship is okay
  17. There is absolutely nothing wrong with you
  18. Life will knock you down, and you need to learn to pick yourself back up
  19. Its okay to be vulnerable (still working on this one…)

Life is messy, complicated, scary and weird… but somehow that just adds to how amazing life is. 19 was a weird year; I cemented who I was, and I was more selective in who I let take from my energy. 19 was a year of a lot of hardships and trying to hold it all together. I didn’t hold it all together, but I still tried. You don’t have to constantly have it together, its okay to be a mess, weird, crazy and a disaster. You are human, its okay to be human. Here’s to being 20!

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!
