Wisdom of the Day

23 things I learned in my 23 years

  1. A successful person begins with two beliefs: The future can be better than the present and I have the power to make it so.
  2. A wise man once told me to never live in the past or the future, but live in now. And that was one of the most important messages I received.
  3. Dreams won’t come looking for you. That’s why you have to chase them.
  4. Don’t crave for the pain just to feel closer to someone. You are more than this. Don’t be at this low.
  5. Do not expect anything. It’s one of the most important things. The less you expect the less disappointed you feel. It also saves you for a little surprise.
  6. Don’t let men stare at you. Stare back at them and make sure they get uncomfortable so they see how creepy and unsettling it feels.
  7. Forgive people. Forgive them for yourself, so that you can let go and move on with your life.
  8. If someone says something that makes you feel uncomfortable, stay quiet and just staring deep into their eyes. It works 10/10!
  9. I’ve learned that every feeling will pass if you give it time. Don’t rush just take it slow. Please learn how to deal with your feelings as it’s a part of your body. Nobody knows your body except yourself.
  10. Kindness is the fastest way to earn respect.
  11. Learn to be quite just like you learned to talk because of talking guides you and quite do protect you.
  12. Love and death come uninvited so live every day as your last. What I can guarantee is one day it will be and I’ll never know when.
  13. Make a list of your weaknesses and work on them one by one. If you are serious, you’ll be surprised how strong you are.
  14. Nobody is going to kiss your scars, come to your window at 4 am or love you unconditionally like some cliché John Green book. You have to be your own hero.
  15. People act according to the way they experience the world. If you can understand their experience, you can understand their behaviour.
  16. Sometimes all you need to do is stop for a moment and ask yourself: “Is this even my business?”
  17. Speak your mind even if your voice shakes.
  18. Stick to this quote, “There are far better things ahead than anything you’ve left behind.”
  19. Stop thinking that you know what other people think because after all, that is something you made up.
  20. The monsters in your head are just there. In your head. No one knows about them. And that is your power. Just make sure to keep them on the leash.
  21. The universe doesn’t give you what you want in your mind; it gives you what you demand with your actions.
  22. When you stop talking to people, stop talking about them.
  23. You can’t keep dancing with the devil and ask why you’re still in hell. Forgive yourself. Free yourself from yourself.
