Things I wish I knew Growing up

Hey, thanks for coming back. Hope you've checked out my last post, if not check it out Here 

Now growing up I have never been the popular one or the pretty one I've always been the shy quite girl that sits in the corner with my glasses and doesn't talk to anyone unless I really have to. and let's face it if you ever want to be "known" to anyone you have to talk to people and I'm not going to lie that is something I am still working on to this day!!  Even talking to people on line I find difficult, the most difficult is starting a conversation on line or in person I have always been so afraid of judged. That might seem like such a lame reason to not talk but that's how it is. These are a few things that I wish I had know growing up, and few things that I think could help others. 
  • Not everyone will like you, and that IS ok!  for ages at school I got caught up in knowing just how many people didn't like me and how many people enjoyed pointing out that they didn't like me. I know now that its ok, I just wasn't their type of person and they aren't in my life now for that simple reason
  • Be yourself, boy do I feel cliche writing that but it is so so so true. Don't ever try to be something your not, yes I know that you will need to figure your self out while growing up, but if you don't want to do something for love of god don't do it!! I always wanted to have the same school bag as the popular kids or the same pencil case rather than actually choosing a school bag that I genuinely liked. But I wanted people to   "like me" 
  • It's ok if you don't know what you want to do when you leave school. You will feel like the world will come to an end if you haven't figured out what you want to do for the rest of your life, you will feel so much pressure from family and teachers to figure it out. But don't worry you have the rest of your life to figure it out. I don't even know what I want to do now. I work in retail which I know isn't my dream job and I don't want to be doing it for the rest of my life and i'm 23. Who knows maybe my blog would one take off and this can be my job (one can dream) 
  • Life is pretty damn hard, and there will days that you feel like you can't do it. You'll be faced with so many obstacles every single day. and some days the simplest of tasks will feel like they are impossible. But getting through them will make you a stronger person, and when you persevere you'll thank your self that you did.
  • Friends before Boyfriends, I know you may already be shouting "girl code" at your screens, I know. But I have first hand experience with this I choose my then boyfriend who I met in college and had only known for 6 months max over my best friend that I had known since forever, and to this day it's the biggest mistake I have ever made. But I really did believe he was the "one" (OMG i'm cringing writing that)  you know who you are if your reading this and I am truly sorry!! If a guy ever makes you choose between him and your friends you drop him there and then... Understood?  good! 
  • Do what makes you happy, if you want something out of life only you can go and get it, it's only now at the age of 23 that I am finally learning to do this. And I can tell you now, it feels damn good.
  • Don't take your friends or family for granted. I know some of you are thinking you never would do that. Well being the stroppy teenager that I know I was there were so many things that I took for granted. Mum and Dad i'm sorry!!  Your friends and Family will be the ones there put you back together when you fall apart and at some point you will fall apart and that's ok. But you'll need them so make sure you thank them on a regular basis and tell them you love them!!  *brb just calling my parents*
  • Your mum one day will become one of your closest of friends, although my older cousin did tell me this I laughed right back in her face.  Well now I don't live at home with my parents I do find my self calling my mum just say to say "Hi" and talk about girly things that mum and daughter should talk about. when she kisses you public or in front of yours friends don't push her off,  do it back it'll mean the world to her! 
  • With regards to skin care this is something that it's only recently I've done. But that is is you have problematic skin, go and talk to someone. If you go and have a facial or pop into a spa somewhere and ask what they would recommend, the chances are if you buy something there they really wont mind too much. I wish I had asked for help sooner. I could of had clear skin by now!! 
I really cant believe that it took me years to figure this shit out, but I got here and I am still learning. There will always be something new to learn. Hell I still have to figure out mortgages and all that.... 

If you had to tell your younger self something what would it be?
