21 things i learnt in 21 years

1. Not everyone will like you

You will come across people who do not like you, and that is okay. Just lift your head up and don't mind them.


2. You will doubt yourself

There will come a time where you will question yourself and have doubts, the time will come and you'll realise you're happier than ever before.

This point relates back to the previous one; you are beautiful and you are enough. Don't let anyone else tell you otherwise.

No matter what, always put yourself first.


5. It is okay not to be okay

You will have days where you feel down and don't feel like doing anything and that's okay. Take a break. Tomorrow is another day.

Make sure that you look after your body; that you eat enough calories, vitamins, proteins etc to keep your body healthy and in shape.

You're still young, so go out on a Friday night and have fin with your friends; remember, you're not getting any younger!
