21 things by 21

Two weeks ago, I turned 21 years old (should I yay, or nay?) – a lot of weird, and personal and challenging and emotional developments have occurred in my life through the past 4-5 years. Keeping in mind my new found wisdom gained from legal adulthood, here’s 21 things I learnt before I turned 21:

  1. Best friends are overrated: I’ve had a string of different best friends over the years before I realized how extremely stupid the concept was. The person you are closest to depends on where you are in life and changes as rapidly as your life changes.
  2. Not everyone will understand you: Everyone isn’t equipped to understand your problems no matter how much you want them to. So find someone who is.
  3. Long distance is really long distance: You won’t even realize how fast some people grow out of you once they go to another country.
  4. Not everyone will feel what you feel: You might hate someone deeply and that person might not even give you a glance (which actually will just make you hate them more), but more importantly you might walk a paragraph for someone and they’ll keep you for a sentence in their heart.
  5. Music is the best therapy: Nothing will ever suit any situation in life as much as the right music will.
  6. Your person will come: In a generation where everyone is always in a relationship, or has found that person to post cheesy captions for, life will give you your person when you’re actually ready for them.
  7. Never give up on TV shows: There is a plethora of television series’ on every kind of platform everywhere. Find something for yourself, because when college, work and people get too much, you really need those. (I recently watched Mindhunter (Netflix) and Breathe (Amazon Prime) – go try them!)
  8. Try something new: Everything around us is constantly evolving and trying anything new once in a while really helps.
  9. Making new friends isn’t terrible: There are times when people will give you a lot of grief about some new people you start talking to. Forget them. Spend time with people who are good for your mental health.
  10. Pizza will never disappoint you: This is true 10000000%. People will disappoint you, and movie adaptations of books will disappoint you, but pizza will never ever ever disappoint you.
  11. Read one quote per day: This is actually really therapeutic and very easy to do. Quotes are literally everywhere. I get my daily dose from instagram and we heart it.
  12. Change is the only constant: Every change doesn’t necessarily have to be bad. If something is changing, its 99% for the best.
  13. Move On: Move on from boring books and overrated shows, but most importantly move on from heartbreak.
  14. Forgive, not easily, but forgive: Forgiving people who’ve really done you wrong comes very hard. Its really easy to just say you hate someone and not make any effort. So try forgiving. Forgive people because you deserve to give that peace to yourself.
  15. Make time: Life is all about priorities and if someone’s company, and someone’s presence really means a lot, then please prioritize them. Life is run out of you before you can make the most of these people.
  16. Work your ass off: I mean, really, work so hard that you never look back thinking you could’ve worked harder. Work hard at work and work hard at college and you’ll easily master adulthood.
  17. You can’t change people: Some people come into your life filling it with so much happiness and hope that the minute something goes wrong in their life, you want to fix it. But you really can’t. Whatever is happening in someone else’s life is happening because of how they are as a person, and that – you can’t change that, no matter how much you try and how much you want to.
  18. Put your health first: This is so important and most people don’t realize it till they’ve already lost all control over it. Nothing in life will matter as much as your physical and mental health will (except maybe One Direction coming back together), so work on your health everyday!
  19. Binge watch Harry Potter: You shouldn’t even need a reason for this. Binge watching Harry Potter movies is the best thing and you never need a specific time or reason or anything at all for the same.
  20. Never forget what you love: Really, it could be singing or dancing or looking up crazy recipes all day (personally, I love reading). Always, and I mean always, find time for what you really love.
  21. You’re not too old: You really aren’t. Stop cribbing and thinking that you’ve wasted life. You’ve barely started life.
