I have been reminiscing recently about life, and there has been highs and lows (I know I’m not old). But as I’m closer to my 30’s rather than my 20’s (SO SCARY) I have been sitting here thinking – what have I learnt so far?
I believe I am a different person to who I was 10 years ago, even a year ago and that all comes for experiences. There are things I wish I could have taken back or changed – I know you should never regret anything, but I do sometimes!
I have learnt that friendship groups can get smaller through time. You should always be able to rely on true friends, and that it’s hard to find people that will stick with you no matter what. I haven’t had any major event happen, but people have drifted apart. I do/don’t think it’s anyone’s fault. Sometimes I just don’t make that extra effort because I don’t think it’s worth it, I have tried already or I just can’t be bothered. Don’t give up on people that will support you no matter what. I have also learnt that not all men are the same, and that sometimes when you think someone’s flirting, he may actually just be trying to be nice.. and vice versa. There is a lot more pressure now that I’m 25 to find a partner, I can actually see myself going on a dating site. Five years ago that would be a no go! It has taught me to take more chances that arise to meet someone.
I have also learnt that publishing everything over social media is a no go – well for me it isn’t! I’ve realised how much of a private person I am, and how I hate everyone knowing my business (bit weird for a blogger to be saying this). I have seen how a simple status can cause trouble and arguments, and screen shotting is dangerous. Fair enough, we live in a world surrounded by what each other are doing, but there’s sharing your life and there’s sharing too much of your life. Let those true friends know your business – no one else. I have also noticed what others share on their own social media isn’t always true. People try they hardest to make their life look better than it actually is to put others down.
I have realized how it is so important to save money if you’re able to. Money doesn’t make the world go around, but it sure does make it easier. Having that little pot of money in a savings account can benefit anyone so much in the future. So if you can SAVE!
So what i’m trying to say is, the older you get – the more you will see things in a whole new perspective. Enjoy life& enjoy the lessons! 🙂
