16 Things I Learned While I Was 16

  1. If a relationship has to be a secret, you probably shouldnt be in it.
  2. No one is in charge of your happiness except you
  3. Time heals most anything
  4. There is a huge difference between genuinely liking someone and liking the attention they give you.
  5. Be kind to yourself- remember treat yourself often, even if you’re on a low budget. Treating yourself is extremely important, and we all need to realize that if you dont take care of yourself you cant always expect others to do it for you.
  6. Whatever People say I am that’s what I’m not- Taken from the Arctic Monkeys. You cant always listen to what others say about you. Because there will always be people who dont like your decisions. You have to focus on what you want because its your life.
  7. Learn to say No- Personally its really hard for me to say no in some situations. But we have to realize that agreeing to something we’re not comfortable with is unacceptable.
  8. Self First. Pause. Then Others.
  9. Kind of like number 8: Do NOT set yourself on fire to keep others warm
  10. Sometimes you have to burn bridges to stop yourself from crossing them again.
  11. I never needed you, I wanted you. There’s a difference.
  12. If a guy is intrested in you. You will know. He will make an effort. He will talk to you. He will make plans with you. If you’re getting mixed signals or you never hear from him or you’re always the one messaging first. Or you’re always the one putting yourself out there and its never recipricated. Odds are he’s not into you. If a guy wants to get your attention he will find a way.
  13. Just because you can doesnt mean you should.
  14. There’s a huge difference beween someone liking you for you and someone liking you for what you can do for them
  15. People are not solutions
  16. Never be afraid to lose what needs to be lost.
