The prompt given by The Finicky Cynic for this post which you can see here was What is one piece of advice that you would give to your younger self?
The one piece of advice I would give to my younger self is don’t lose hope and don’t give up. Things may suck at the moment but they will get better. Just give yourself a chance. If you just hold on, you’ll see that there is a lot more to see and do in this world and don’t give up just yet. Don’t hold on to the things that give you pain, they are not worth it and remember, if you feel like you’ve hit rock bottom, then life can only improve from that point on.
Live! You’re young. You can do what you like.Don’t let the world dull your shine. Dance. Sing. Paint. Laugh. Do stupid things. Make a fool of yourself. Kiss. Do whatever your heart wants but please don’t regret anything you do. All of it will make you who you are.
Life is full of ups and down. You make be at a low point right now, but things will get better someday. Someday you’ll not wake up and think of ending your life anymore. Don’t give up. Hold on and take care of yourself. Treat yourself. Celebrate you’re accomplishments. You are worth it.
These are the things that I wish someone had told me when I was younger and really needed to hear them. So, that’s it, I guess.
