Start ignoring people who threaten your joy.
Literally, ignore them.
Don’t invite any parts of them into your space.
Don’t do that. Don’t skip stages in your life. You’re 19, kiss a few boys and wear your heart on your sleeve. There will come a time when you’re 39 and stuck in a suit, wondering why the hell you were so eager to grow up in the first place.
Love your parents. We are so busy growing up, we often forget they are also growing old.
I no longer have the energy for meaningless friendships, forced interactions or unnecessary conversations.
my roommate is 2 days younger than me so i’ve gotten into the habit of saying “when i was your age..” and then describing what i did 2 days ago
Beautiful things happen when you distance yourself from negativity.
