Everyone lives. Everyone dies. One thing that i learned at the small age of 16 is to continue living life with 110% of happiness. You are provided with one life, and one life only. Why would you want to waste your life being sad continuously? I know lows suck so much, but you are the only one in control of your life. Not your parents, friends, etc. ONLY YOU.
If you're not a morning person, think of one thing to wake up to. If you can't fall asleep, try taking melotonin and close your eyes because sleep is important. Don't dwell on the past, focus on now and the future. Help out people daily, no matter if its opening the door for someone or giving money to the poor, the world is in need of more happy and helpful people. Smile until you're happy when you're sad. If you are still sad after that, be thankful because you may learn from the experience. Respect and love the people around you, especially yourself! When you're angry, go out for a run or dance like a crazy person. As i said, you only live one life, so travel to that foreign country, or go to that concert. Buy the concert tickets first, then plan how you're going to get there. Don't be upset because you can't get what you want. Respect that because there are many reasons. Stay out of drama because in the end it will be better for you and you will be better off without it.
Don't body shame yourself. People are different and unique, which makes everyone beautiful. We are born with different bodies and different looks. Don't listen to society and be your own person. Wear clothes that makes you feel great about yourself and always smile. Don't be scared of trying that new makeup product or cutting your hair. Sometimes change can be good and lead to a better future. Focus on yourself. If you're in that unhealthy relationship, or you're not fully happy with the relationship you are in, get out! Do things for yourself, not others. Be your own self. You need to make yourself happy and once you are happy, go ahead and care for others because in the end, you are the only person that matters. Stand up for yourself and if someone makes you feel less about yourself, stand up and leave them. They dont deserve you. You are unique and beautiful. Keep on smiling :)
