Hi lovely hearters! I'll turn 19 in 10 days, and these past few years made me grow so much! I’ve learnt a lot about myself and others.
I left my home town and family in september and I settled in a new city for college. Where I knew no one. I am at the end of my teenage years and at the beginning of my adult life. I think it’s important to understand the lessons of our past to not make the same mistakes. I strongly believe that everything happens for a reason.

1- At first, runaway from DRAMA! Let go of “deadweight” Deadweight can be unhealthy relationship situations, toxic relationships and friendships, and all kind of negativity. It can ruin your life. Don’t stress yourself with people who don’t even deserve to be an issue of your life. And surround yourself with people who act like sunshine in your life. Believe me, you will feel so much better! Be with loyal people who influence your mood positively and encourage you to be the best version of yourself. Your surrounding is SO important.

2- You deserve to be treated with RESPECT.

3- What people think of you is none of your business.

4- Never compare yourself with others. YOU are UNIQUE!

5- Putting yourself out of your comfort zone is probably the most efficient way to learn and grow as person. Do things that scare you and watch yourself bloom more and more.

6- Happiness should be your overall goal in life. YOU and your well-being should be the priority in your life.

7- Everything happens when you last expect this. Sometimes you just have to forget about stuff and they will happen at their own pace. I happened to me so many times in my life.

8- Sometimes a good cry is necessary.

9- Don’t keep things for yourself , speak up when your feelings hurt. Call a friend. Tell your mum. You’ll feel better after. You are not alone.

10- If you can be nice with someone do it. Be human, the world need more of that. “13 reasons why” made me realize that we never know what people are going through. We all have bad times. And remember that we do not have the same luck.

11- You need to have goal and ambitions in order to help guide you in finding your destiny.

12- Books are precious! You can live all adventures and experiences in your brain. Thanks to them, you learn the most important lessons of life. They make you grow. And be wiser. Reading is also an escape to reality. They allow you to forget your problems for a little while. You can travel everywhere, in other places, in other worlds, in an other century. They are pure magic!

13- Love your parents. And show it to them. We are so busy growing up that we forget they are getting old.

14- Don’t feel sad over someone that give up on you. Feel sorry for them because they gave up on someone who would have never give up on them. So, who’s the real winner?

15- Opportunities do not happen, you create them.

16- Nobody is too busy. It’s just a question of priority.

17- You have the power to say no.

18- Fall in love with you. Be yourself. And most importantly, believe in you. You have a lot to be proud!

19- Stop thinking about everything so much. You are breaking your own heart.

20- Sometimes you need to get lost to find yourself. It’s by experimenting bad things and situations that you will recognize what is not made for you. Don’t see it like a failure, but like a lesson for the future, which will allow you to know better what you truly want.
