👫We can’t date a jerk and expect to turn them into a good person. Jerks are fully committed to being 😭unpleasant. Those brief moments of tenderness they give you are designed to trip you up and give you false hope. It’s best to stay away altogether.
You’ll always care about your first love💑That doesn’t make you crazy, it just makes you human. When relationships end, it’s not so cut and dry. You carry everyone you’ve ever loved into every relationship thereafter. Use those past experiences for your good.
😤You’ll treat someone terribly. Whether it be a lover or your friend, there’ll be someone whose feelings you take for granted. We focus too much on whether or not someone is hurting us. The reality is we might actually be the one who’s hurting someone.
💆You’ll question every decision you make and never feel completely certain that you made the right choice. It’s pointless to wonder about all the what if’s. You might as well make the right decision you can live with.
👵👴You’ll see your parents get older. You’ll come home during Christmas break and see new lines developing on their faces. One day it’ll just hit you that your parents are old and going to die. There’s nothing you can do about it, besides treat them with kindness and visit as much as your budget permits.
You’ll know how to make twenty💰dollars last an entire week because you spent almost all of your paycheck on groceries🍗🌽🍄🍊at Whole Foods and drunk🚕cab rides. This lesson in frugality will serve you well.
💕Loving yourself is hard. Hating yourself is harder.
You’re going to have people in your life who are toxic 🚷They may say they love you, they may say they have your back, but they don’t. Get rid of them immediately!💯
💁Doing “grown-up things” doesn’t make you a grown up. Shopping for housewares, buying a plant, embracing domesticity — these things don’t create maturity. If you’re still behaving as a child who hasn’t figured things out, you’ll remain immature, no matter how many times you pay your rent on time.
😱Don’t force yourself into loving anyone. If it’s not working in the beginning, it’s probably not going to work ever.
🙏You are so blessed to have everything that you need at this very moment. Stop waiting and crying about an unreturned call or text message and get some perspective. Everyone you meet will not have the same heart as you💓.
