25 things you need to know as an adult to survive...

Updated: May 22, 2020

Hey there Wanderers! I know its been forever since I last updated you guys with a blog post, and I do apologize for that!

One thing that a lot of young people are having difficulty with lately is balancing their life in the process of adulthood. Being an adult is hard, I know. You're looking for peace of mind on one end and looking for yourself and succeeding in the other.

I turned 25 recently and I couldn't help but take time to write this post about 25 things I've learned in life, and which I wholly dedicate to all my fellow '90's babies who are experiencing adulthood and are hanging on to dear life when it comes to surviving certain situations.

1. Trust your gut! But that does not mean that you're always right...

2. Never compromise on your self-respect and dignity

3. The 80-20 rule. Can't follow it? Then don't expect hard-core results.

"The Pareto principle (also known as the 80–20 rule, the law of the vital few, and the principle of factor sparsity) states that, for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes."

4. Never invest expectations onto someone if you cannot take responsibility for it later

5. Nothing lasts forever

6. The truth may be hurtful, but lies can destroy you.

7. Love yourself. Respect yourself. Nothing or nobody can make you think otherwise

8. NEVER talk bad about someone or tolerate it when another does it.

9. Give Respect, Take Respect. ALWAYS.

10. Don't underestimate your abilities, others' too!

11. There is no need to beg for love, attention, or kindness. Let it come to you on its own!

12. Nobody has the right to judge you and vise-versa!

13. Don't turn your back onto someone just because they aren't in your life.

14. Breathe.

15. Know what you want, and stop comparing!

16. Learn to be independent

17. Change your perspective and learn to be patient

18. If you cannot accept others' flaws, you shouldn't have a problem with others judging you.

19. Never sympathize yourself or accept it from others!

20. Stop complaining! Start working!

21. Accept situations and people as they are, respect their opinions too!

22. Accept your mistakes and take responsibility for your actions

23. Hatred, jealousy, greed and narrowness will not get you anywhere

24. Be a good sport
