19 Things I Learned Before My 19th Birthday

In honor of turning 19...

I decided to do a bit of reflection. Getting older is scary, but cool at the same time because I've had some great experiences. Here are some of the things that I've learned during my lifetime.

1. If you want something, just ask for it.

2. Don't say maybe if you want to say no.

3. You can't save everybody.

4. Not everything deserves your attention.

5. Just because people keep popping up in your life doesn't mean that they're meant to stay.

6. Sometimes you have to be the one to reach out to family members to speak to them.

7. Pettiness isn't cute.

8. Feelings matter.

9. Even loyalty has a limit.

10. The things that you don't say make up all the difference.

11. Thinking long term is a double-edged sword.

12. Take advantage of the food at home.

13. Kickbacks are almost always better than parties.

14. Going into anything with the wrong intentions will end badly.

15. Stay inside if you don't want to go out because you're probably not missing anything.

16. Everything has a purpose behind it. Be able to explain yourself when the time comes.

17. You're not grown. Stop relying on what you know, because it's not much.

18. It's a blessing to finish with the ones you started with.

19. C.R.E.A.M.
