22 Things I’ve Learned In 22 Years

I’ve seen some bloggers doing this lately and I thought it would be fun to do since I had my birthday recently. Here are some things I’ve learned in my time:

  1. Save, save, save. Even if it’s £5 or £1, save money as regularly as possible
  2. Friends truly are the family you choose for yourself
  3. Sexuality and gender are fluid, ever-changing and worth celebrating
  4. People who drain your energy and invite negativity into your life need to be cut out or minimised. They are not worth your time.
  5. Reading is so vital (yes, audiobooks and fanfiction count)
  6. Balance is key
  7. Taking care of your mental health is as important as taking care of your physical health
  8. It’s hard, but ignore everything the media has to say about body image and beauty. Trends change, but your unique self will always be constant
  9. Say no more often
  10. Being selfish is not always a negative thing
  11. Be a little more kind and smiley than you have to be
  12. The mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell
  13. Do what you love often – habits make the biggest long-term difference
  14. If you don’t know what you want to do with your life, it will come soon
  15. Taking an adult job to support yourself while you follow your dreams is not weak or giving up
  16. Meal prepping works wonders
  17. Respect others even if you do not agree with them
  18. Respect preferred pronouns and sexualities
  19. When fighting with someone about a little thing, it is often not about the small thing but something else entirely
  20. If something is bothering you talk about it with someone you trust, even if you think it’s silly
  21. Going to therapy and counselling can be incredibly helpful
  22. Depression, anxiety or any mental illness can affect anyone at any time

  1. I loved this list so much! Especially the part about mitochondria (I was a bit of a biology nerd) but seriously, great list and I’m glad that you’ve learnt so many great lessons!

    1. Thank you, friend. I joked about the mitochondria but it is one of the few things from school that stuck with me XD I’m glad you enjoyed it!
