15 Little Revelations

This year has been especially trying for me. Going from one job to a few scam jobs to interviews to finally landing another job to being insecure that it’s not where I should be in life to crushed dreams, realizing the toxicity of my childhood and more have brought me to an understanding of several things. One of them being that run on sentence and the others I will share with you now.

  1. Dreams take time
  2. All because you want something to happen, doesn’t mean it will
  3. You can try your best and, to some people, it will never be good enough
  4. There comes a time in every child’s life when they realize they can’t live with their parents anymore and that’s okay
  5. Your parents are doing the best they can even though they can still suck
  6. All because someone doesn’t pay you to be a writer doesn’t mean you’re not one
  7. All because you’re not published yet doesn’t mean you’re not a writer
  8. Being a writer, much like being an artist, is something you are and not something that needs any validation
  9. Your plans aren’t set in stone so expect them to change
  10. All because you’re not doing what you love right now doesn’t mean you’ll never get to do it
  11. Almost anything can be forgiven so when you get the opportunity to forgive, do it.
  12. Family, your biological one or otherwise, is one of the most important things this life can offer
  13. Trying to be what everyone else thinks you should be instead of being what and who you actually are is a great mistake and disservice
  14. A real friend will be there for you when you are at your absolute lowest and cheer with you when you are at your highest
  15. Lastly, sometimes good things happen when you least expect them to
