52 Lits // Week 32 - Teenager

Can you believe it's list 32 already?! Madness!

1. Some friendships just aren't worth clinging on to - I think that's something you really learn more and more in your 20's - sometimes you just have to cut your losses.

2. That what everybody posts online isn't always a true reflection of their happiness - unless somebody is a complete attention seeker then they aren't going to post about their bad days, are they? 

3. Similar to the above, but don't compare where you are to where somebody else is. Everybody's lives move at different stages, everybody does different things.

4. Trying to impress people really isn't worth it - you impress people more by being yourself, not trying to conform to the latest trends or to other people's expectations of you. Do what you want to do.

5. Relationships should not consume your life. As girls (and even boys) make mistakes - we think a new boyfriend/girlfriend is the best thing since sliced bread...until it isn't. Don't stress out too much over it, if it's not working, don't necessarily try and fix it - be young and enjoy yourself.

6. That the stresses as a teen are so minor in comparison to the stresses you face when you're older - obviously at that age I wouldn't have known any different, but I wish sometimes I hadn't been such a worrier

7. You have to ride out the bad times and take advantage of the good. Nobody's life is straight forward - things will always get better, even if it doesn't seem like it at the time!

8. You don't have to drink excessively to enjoy yourself - god I wish I had realised this as a teenager.

9. Nobody likes their body - eat healthily, exercise, get plenty of sleep and take your make up off at night - it will catch up on you if not. Embrace what you have!
