16 things I wish I knew when I was 16

  1. A good night’s sleep will fix a lot of things.
  2. He is not your world and leaving him will not be the end of it.
  3. You are not fat.
  4. That said, a trip to the gym will not kill you. Healthy is happy.
  5. Coconut oil. Everywhere. All the time.
  6. People come and go in your life. Treasure the time you have with them.
  7. Read more.
  8. Take more photos. Get them printed. Surrounding yourself with the people you love is the easiest way to be happy.
  9. Distance can be your worst enemy and your best friend, depending on the person.
  10. Not everyone has to like you. Learn to shrug off the ones that don’t.
  11. Doing well in school is great, but be sure to foster other interests as well.
  12. Don’t wait until you’re at your breaking point to ask for help. There is no shame in admitting you’re not capable of everything.
  13. Speak up in class. Make friends. Actively learn and take charge.
  14. You have no clue what you’re doing.
  15. Admit when you’re wrong, but refuse to take the blame for something you didn’t do.
  16. You can do this.
