Growing up can be so challenging.. I am a mature grown woman now, who has made many mistakes in her life. Today I see these mistakes made by the younger generation and I just want to save you before you even try to take the leap, but what is growing if you are not learning from it.
You are going to be judged by many people but you just have to focus on what you really want out of life. This world will try breaking you but you just have to keep your focus.
Enrich your mind: Keep challenging yourself to learn new things. Don't allow yourself to get stuck in one place either mentally or physically. Ask questions (be inquisitive), push yourself to try out new things, do new things. Spend time with people: Build a good support group, whether it is family or friends. Most of the time the best support we get are from strangers and not our families and it is ok to feel secure with strangers as long as you can trust them wholeheartedly. Find a good listener, we all need that one person we can trust. Also you have to learn to think about what you about to say before it leaves the mouth, because you can never take it back. Never rush your age, enjoy everyday, make the best of it, have fun, study, get the job you want- then spoil yourself before you even think of having your own family- Travel, Shop, Know yourself...
If you want to grow more:
Compliment yourself more
Don't make excuses- "Just Do it"
Let go of anger ( I am still learning this)
Practice Forgiveness ( I am still learning how)
Be honest and direct ( if you do not like something, it is ok to say No)
Be helpful ( Helping others can take you a long way, you never know when you will need the person).
Listen to others ( We do not know everything- we learn everyday. I am still learning, your parents are, even the professors are still learning)
Growing up is also about facing your fears, you just have to take it on and do it. You will come out stronger in the end. Growing up comes with lots of heartbreaks, let downs; we all go through it and we come out of it- so yes you can come out of it as well.
Love more, be ambitious, Live your life ( feel free) 💗
