On letting go;
This past year, I finally (finally, finally) let go of someone that was hurting me. A lot of times we choose only to see the best in people, ignoring what really needs to be seen. When you’re ready, you will allow yourself to see it and it might hurt, but a weight will be lifted from your shoulders – that’s letting go.
Life is a constant push and pull, mostly between selfishness and selflessness. It’s all about balance. Once in awhile it’s good to decide to stay in with a good book or your favorite movie, but you also need to be a good friend. That means that sometimes you should go out even if you don’t feel like it, your friends will appreciate it and chances are you’ll end up enjoying yourself.
On having a good time;
Like I mentioned before, go out even if you don’t feel like it – you will have fun. Spend a lot of time with your friends – they are some of your most important relationships. Do something for the sake of it being a good story. Money will, most likely, always be a problem – travel now when you don’t care as much. Indulge in what makes you happy, if you really enjoy ice cream sundaes get a goddamn sundae (but not too often, it takes away from being an indulgence). Do something that scares you. Try new restaurants, converse with people in line for coffee – learn something new, go out for breakfast at midnight. Fuck calories
On being alone;
One of the best things you can do for yourself is to learn to like being alone. If you can’t spend a day alone with yourself how can you expect anyone else to do the same? Treat yourself to a cup of coffee and sit alone with a book- notice how peaceful it is. Walk around a museum, a bookstore, a shopping mall – notice how nice it is to go at your own pace. There will be times in your life where you have to be alone, if you learn to like it than this will be okay.
