Things I Have Yet to Learn While ‘adulting’…

By Maiyab @maiyab26

Let’s face it, this “New year, new me!” phrase is full of sh*t. We all like to pretend/want to believe that this New Year, we will make huge, positive changes in our lives. We love to lie to ourselves every year to make ourselves feel better. Why do we constantly do this!? Perhaps it’s out of guilt. Or maybe we are just cowards. Truth is, we are very bad at accepting the fact that we suck at some things… Actually, a lot of things! We are human, and whether we like it or not, we are full of stupidity. Every single of us. So this is me accepting that fact that I am a flawed human being and listing all the things I’m still horrible at as I continue “adulting” in my early 20’s.

  • Good stuff that feel good or seem clean can be dirty. So always be critical.
  • There is only 24 hours in a day. That’s it. Nothing more, nothing less. You cannot create or freeze time. You can only race it.
  • Sleep is not optional. You are not a giraffe. You can’t get away with only 2 hours of sleep.
  • Coffee is not a substitute for food.
  • Bad sh*t happens when you ignore your body.
  • There is no pride in exhaustion, no matter how much you love what you do. Like it or not, you need a break.
  • If you need to vent, let it all out & hit that delete button immediately. Not everyone needs to know about your issues on social media.
  • People who hate you don’t really hate you. You have something they envy. Take pride in yourself and your work.
  • No one is dumb. There’s always something to learn from everyone. Always be the student.
  • Don’t let someone dominate your decisions. It’s your life. So make your own choices.
  • Lastly, never ever chase people. Only chase your goals and make your dreams a reality. You’ll get further.
