1 : Care about your friends and your family, your relationships must bring you hapiness.
2 : Don't be overfocused on your ultimate goals, take time to be happy.
3 : Realise what really matters for yourself. What gets you happy in your life.

I hate Donald Trump and everything but if George Washington was resurrected he'd make Trump look progressive. All these poor people, women, and blacks allowed to vote? Hed be outraged!

I didn't go on a date for 24 years and counting, and it's ok.
Also, in the event that I actually go on dates, I'd probably get kidnapped and murdered by some creep

I'm about to turn 65, so I've had almost 47 years of adult experiences. Don't do anything or buy anything to impress other people. They will mostly not notice or care, and even if they do it will only be fleeting and soon forgotten. The few times other people in this world notice you it will be because they see you do something good and productive when no one else is around. The only way to never be taken advantage of or lied to is to live in a hole in the ground, so accept the fact that you're going to be duped every once in a while. Being totally happy or unhappy about anything is childish. Don't do that as an adult. Being young -- under 30 -- is a very short period of time and when it's over everyone around you will have filled their emotional plate with family, friends, and earning a living. You are ten times more likely to make new friends from age 18-30 than after that. At the end of your life it will be about what you did, not what you wanted to do or did to impress other people or even yourself. A bucket list can be doing 1,000 small things rather than ten epic things. As the people you know are picked off by cosmic roulette you will realize how lucky you are at every age. People start dying in their 20s, 30s, and 40s and it only accelerates. Don't stay angry at others for being stupid or doing you wrong. You have a lot to be forgiven for too. Every life is its own Rubik's Cube with a unique pattern of success and failure. Figure out your own life because no one else can or will. Looking back isn't a waste of time. Be of good will, in a world that often has little. This too shall pass. Write your own paragraph about this topic NOW, not ten years from now, and update it every year or two because you will evolve. Let it happen.

I'm 17 years old and there are many things that I wish I'd learned a while ago. Here is my list:
-Your surroundings can impact your mood. I really need to clean my room.
-Daily practice is important.
-YouTube isn't the only thing to entertain myself.
-You'll find love when the time comes (I wish I could tell my 14 year old self that).
-Sleep is very important.
This list can go on. Some (most) of those things I still struggle with. When I'm older, I'll probably be upset with myself, but hopefully by then I will have fixed these problems.

20 tips I would give my 20-year-old self (I'm 25):
1. During your college years, sign up to as many electives as possible and join student clubs - this is the best time in your life to explore things unrelated to your interests, to test out your boundaries, and build relationships that last for a lifetime
2. Be comfortable to try new things and fail, even if you know that in advance
3. Your personality is the average of the personalities of your closest friends
4. Don't envy people who are more successful than you - instead, befriend them; you don't want to face them on the ring, you want to train alongside them instead
5. It's okay if you lose touch with some of your friends - it's not necessarily anyone's fault, but a natural consequence of life; make attempts to reconnect
6. It's also okay to cut friends off your life when you feel like you've grown apart or just not compatible anymore
7. Emotional intelligence is just as important as cognitive intelligence; learn to control your emotions and understand them
8. Critique on your work is not critique on you as a person
9. Be more vocal when you see something that's not right
10. If you can't do anything to fix your disadvantages, accept them; if you can - you owe it to yourself to fix them
11. Exercise
12. If it doesn't make you happy, don't do it; if you lose a friend because of that, they weren't your friend to begin with
13. The majority of people in your surroundings have good intentions
14. Don't try to be someone you're not
15. Don't overwork yourself unless there's a good reason to
16. Number of likes your posts/pictures/comments get is irrelevant in the long term
17. The most effective way to open your mind is to travel abroad and immerse yourself in different cultures
18. Calibrate your ambitions with this reality; contrary to popular belief, not everything is possible
19. Girls like you, you're just too stupid to notice, and/or are distracted by the wrong ones
20. Most important of all, remember to have fun with whatever it is you're doing

What amazes me more with the Trump presidency. Is that, you really had no one better?? Voters have to pick between republican shit that knows how make a billion dollars and Democrat shit that doesn’t know how to do anything but is a woman.
Now in 2020: Between a republican shit that kept the country alive for 4 years already and Democrat shit that doesn’t have a spine. And another shit that is a singer and not a politician.
Like bruh. Thinking about his stuff I’m thankful my country has Putin.

I didn't realise guys struggle dating. Is it really still even a thing?🙃 probably not with Covid-19 now🤪
Right now, mid 20s, I've realised home is where the heart is, family is more important than ever. If you don't get attached to anything, life would be easier?🙃🤷🏻‍♀️

I wish I knew instead of looking and checking up what other people do, what you do and what you think is what important. I spent years ignoring what my heart told me and following what other people thought was important. Eventually I find it really hard to find my own voice. I wish I were brave and independent back in those days. So that I don't have to be this struggling and confused now.

I wish I knew that public college related degree is not necessary to get a job. Your work speaks for itself. Most things learned in college are learned from books. Just go to the college website, figure out what courses are required and look at the bookstore’s textbook listing. It helps if you can access the syllabi for other recommended reads.

Things i wish i had started doing earlier (i'm 25)
1. Reading at least 10 pages x day of a great book. (May not sound like alot but just do the math and see how many books you could be reading in a year).
2. Exercise at least 5 - 10 minutes every day (Same principle. Several ppl tries to do huge exercise routines that they can't keep up with. Keep it simple and easy but steady)
3. Meditate (I used to laugh of ppl doing meditation until i really tried it and found my inner self. This is hard to explain so just give it a try and you'll experience what i mean)
4. Cut distractions (NetFlix, Excessive amount of hours playing online games, Phone and social media)
5. Devote at least 90 minutes of conscious hard work x day to my craft (profession)
6. Be a student at least for 60 minutes a day. (it can be anything... a book, a podcast, a youtube video from one of your mentors)
7. Be grateful for the things that i already have and those that i'm in the process of manifesting. Gratefulness is very powerfull!
8. Waking up early at least from Monday to Friday (5 am) --> There's magic and alot of room for self development in the early hours of the day (while everyone else is sleeping)
9. Understanding that will power is a muscle. So you need to exercise every single day by taking action .
10. When you feel like you don't really want to do something that you should do (wathever it is) is definitely the best time to do it (builds will power)

8 months into being 20 here's what I've learned:
- No one gives a fuck about you. Ofc friends and family do, but no one cares whether or not that sweater fits them shoes. They will look at you for five seconds and forget about you straight after so go ahead put that glitter top on.
- Know when to talk and when to stay silent.
- Communicate! Open up about your feelings, bottling emotions up will eat you up, hardcore.
- Find a routine that fits YOU, and incorporate art and literature in it.
- Don't underestimate the power of art and knowledge
- Go out and meet people, they are as afraid to speak to you as you are.
- The universe gives and takes; give it positivity and it'll give you positivity back. Working on finding your own happiness is the work of a lifetime but the search's results are close to immediate and worth it.
Life is hard, and if you are struggling right now, please know that it is going to be okay. You are learning and growing, it's a process and you are doing a great job, be kind and gentle to yourself
