2 weeks ago I turned 24 years old. Some people tell me that I look younger, some people tell me that I look (or that I act) older than 24. I would go for the second one.
I always felt older than I really am. One of my friends always tells me that I probably already lived my life for 7 times. That’s why I’m able to give so deep advices about life, love and self care.
He may be right, who knows? 🙂
I like to think that every year I learn something new and useful about life. I like to think that each person that I meet can completely change my life purpose, my choices, my way of thinking.
I have to say that in my last year I learned a lot of things about people. If in my previous years I was focusing more on working harder, in my last one I focused a lot on self-development and on carefully choosing the people around me.
When you’re hurt for too many times, you just start to pay more attention of the people you get involved with.
In my last year I learned that you can love someone with all your soul even if he’s not yours to be. I learned that people make mistakes that can completely destroy someone; that can completely destroy me, if I allow them that.
I learned that, in order to be strong, I have to make strong decisions. Critical ones. I learned that not everyone will agree with my decisions and that, before anyone else support me, I have to be strong enough to support myself.
In my last year I learned that, in order to find happiness, I don’t have to blame others for any of my failures or bad decisions that I made. I just have to embrace everything that comes into my life.
That’s what life actually means: embracing the good and the bad.
In my last year I learned that every decision is a good one, no matter what. I just have to find the best of it. Being positive is not a trend; it’s the way to always be strong.
Many people are telling me that I don’t always have to be strong. That sometimes I should just be human. I always tell them the same: I am human, I am a strong human. Because when the bad things will come into my life, I will be the only one able to take care of myself. No one else will be next to me forever, except myself.
So be a strong woman! You don’t need anyone else to be strong for you, except yourself.
Now, at 24 years old, I feel stronger that before. I am assuming every decision that I take. I let people go easily than before, because I learned to first love myself before loving someone else.
I choose my friends by heart, and not by popularity.
And I choose myself first before anyone else. It’s not about being selfish. It’s about taking care of your soul and not letting anyone destroy it.
