Growing up, you’ll undergo a lot of changes from your physical appearance, mindset and view on life and these are the things about life that I’ve realised as I get older and mature.
I too have changed and realized a number of things that I have never thought of. For example, my view on friends. When you’re a teenager, friends are your everything. They’re the one you spent the most in and out of school. Larger than the time we spent at home with our family. In Malaysia, your class in a year is determined by your grades so like or hate it, you’ll be stuck with all your classmates throughout the whole year and if your relationship with your classmates is bad,
But now, I’m content on having few friends that I could count on and I can only think this way because I am, well, an adult now. My teenage self would not think so.
Anyway, here a list of what I’ve realized as I get older.
- Nothing lasts forever. That includes your pain, your sorrow, and your money lol
- Stranger turns friend. Friend turns stranger.
THIS IS SO SAD T_T
- To have a few close friends is a blessing. Cherish them.
- It’s extremely easy to gain weight but hard to lose.
- Watch out for the calories. Seriously.
- There is so much thing that you don’t know.
- Read, read and read.
- Don’t live in your own bubble.
- The world is much bigger out there. Expand your horizon.
- Don’t just see what you want to see.
- New habits are hard to maintain. One step at a time.
- You suck, your loss.
- Yes, it’s a cruel world out there.
- There must be something that you’ll be good at.
- Never underestimate yourself too much.
- But don’t be overconfident either. Remember, balance is the key.
- Not everything is going to be according to the plan. Relax.
- Everyone else might look like they’re so sure of their life and you’re the one odd out feeling confused
- p/s: They’re as confused and uncertain of the future as you are.
- Never be a people pleaser. It’s not cool.
- Earning money is hard.
- Paying bill is a hassle.
- Please take few things personally. Not everyone is against you.
- If they are, ignore them. They’re not worth your time.
- And the most important thing; Remember why you’re alive.
