As a teenager I get to do a lot of things and experience new stuff, quite often I would say, especially lately. Sometimes things go well and I’m glad I got the guts to do them, and sometimes they just make me regret everything, and even thinking about trying it, even though it was bad just for few minutes or hours, they make me hate my whole day.
Now, the good part about it, is that every new, or not so new, thing I got to do, is the experience I am gaining. Sometimes it comes with knowledge and wisdom, making me get wiser and think twice before doing it again, so I won’t be repeating the same mistakes over and over again.
Even so, I still catch myself wanting to have had someone to tell me what will be good for me, what I will regret doing, what will end up being a disaster or what will make me learn something important. And although this will only lead to an easier life, it would also lead to a boring life, not filled with excitement and surprises. It would just make me a less worried person, who never takes a risk unless she knows it will be beneficial for herself.
So, as I was studying today, I got to think about all the stuff I wish I would have known before and that’s how I decided to make a list of few things which would have made my life easier, lot less stressful and obviously, kinda boring.
- Real friends stay beside you no matter what you do, good or bad.
- Alcohol will make you do stupid stuff, which you’ll regret, but it will help you grow.
- Loosing a relative hurts like hell, and although you’ll feel like dying too because of it, you’ll get over it.
- You can’t change the past.
- People will always judge you for the way you look or behave, all without knowing your reasons.
- Not everybody is gonna like you.
- Some people will take advantage of you,but that will come back to them someday.
- You will succeed!
- You are loved!
- The guys you hook up with at parties don’t want long lasting relationships, so don’t try to hold onto them.
- All the fights with your parents will help you grow, so don’t be too harsh on them.
