The Best Advice I Could Give About Life:
  • First and most importantly, learn to love yourself. Imperfections make beauty and everyone is their own kind of beautiful.
  • Be spontaneous. Never say “no” to a random midnight trip down the road. These trips are good for the soul.
  • Let go of what others think, it will only hold you down.
  • Put your happiness above anything. Let go of toxic people in your life and spend time doing what you love.
  • Never under appreciate the value of family.
  • Spread love and learn to love everyone. Everyone has a story and a soul.
  • Don’t hold grudges. The past is done with and you can never change what happened. Holding on only keeps you stuck in the past and not preparing you for what your future has in store.
  • Chase what your passionate about no matter what- goals, hobbies, people, etc.
  • Be a listener. The more knowledge you obtain from others, the more understanding you will have.
  • Try new things. If you stay in your shell you’ll never know what you’re missing out on.
  • Let pain make you grow, instead of destroying you. You will get hurt in life. There will be days when you question even waking up… Just know the best is always yet to come and there’s beauty in the struggle.
  • Know the difference between love and lust. If he only texts you at 2am to ask you to come over he does not love you.
  • Follow your heart.
  • Send random, meaningful texts.
  • Overuse I love you.
  • Spend time in your bible.
  • Never let a boy define your worth.
  • Stay away from negative people. Negative people will only bring you down in the long run.
  • When you’re upset it is okay to cry. Society has transformed into a culture made to seem heartless. When you have your first heart break, or your first puppy dies it is OK to cry.
  • Don’t let irrelevant things take control of your emotions. School, sports and jobs should never leave you anxious and in fear. Yes, these things are important but they DO NOT run your life.
  • Do not let people tell you who you can and cannot love.
  • Know when to hold on and when it is time to let go
  • Spend time with people who are extremely different than you. These people will teach you a lot about you.
  • Never make fun of someone for something they can’t control.
  • Don’t body-shame or slut-shame.
  • Don’t let feelings and things you never could say build up inside of you. This becomes very unhealthy eventually.
  • Attend every school activity you can. You never get these opportunities back.
  • Tell the ones you love how much you care about them every chance you get.
  • Appreciate the little things.
  • Never let anyone go to sleep mad at you.
  • Compliment others often. The spreading of love actually does indeed make your heart happier.
