21 Things I Have Learned in 21 Years

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


I’ve learned that…
no matter what happens, life goes on and tomorrow is a new day.

I’ve learned that…
making a “living” is not the same as making a “life”.

I’ve learned that…
I do get second chances.  From God, from others.  And for that, I am extremely blessed.

I’ve learned that…
even when I’ve had pains, I don’t have to be one.

I’ve learned that…
people won’t always appreciate, respect, care for or trust me, but that shouldn’t change the way I treat them because if it does, then I’m stooping to their level.

I’ve learned that…
the best company I can keep is just me and God.

I’ve learned that…
letting go of someone who has constantly manipulated my heart and caused me hurt and grief, is one of the most freeing things I could ever do.

I’ve learned that…
every day is an opportunity to give to others what you have received, and to love on them.  A hug, a cup of coffee, a smile, a compliment.  It doesn’t have to be anything extravagant.  After all, it’s the little things in life that matter the most.

I’ve learned that…
people will forget what I said and what I did, but they will never forget how I made them feel.

I’ve learned that…
sleep really is necessary and if I’m not getting the rest my body needs, my brain will start working in weird ways and stuff will get messy.

I’ve learned that…
goals are essential, dreams are a must, and striving forward towards them is all about discipline and determination.

I’ve learned that…
it doesn’t matter when I reach a goal, but that I did it to the best of my ability and with the best intentions.

I’ve learned that…
money isn’t everything.  I need it to survive, but I don’t need it to live.

I’ve learned that…
I’d rather be broke and tired with a night full of memories, than rich and well-rested yet lonely.

I’ve learned that…
memories are made without even realizing they’re being made.  So live life well, minute by minute, cuz I never know what I’ll remember or not.

I’ve learned that…
just because I love someone with everything I have in me doesn’t mean they will return that love.  But this doesn’t mean that I should be afraid of ever loving again.

I’ve learned that…
people don’t have control over the way I react or how I allow them to affect me.  If there’s tension or drama, stay clear of it.  If I’m in the middle of it, don’t let it get to me.  Rise above it.  Be mature. Stay calm.

I’ve learned that…
regardless of the relationship I have with my parents, I will always miss being away from them and they will always be there for me when I need them.  More importantly too, they will always love me.

I’ve learned that…
God and family really are everything.  Other people may come and go but these two are forever, so I need to invest in those relationships because whenever I hit rock bottom, they will be all I have.

I’ve learned that…
nothing will ruin my life more than thinking I should have my life together already.

I’ve learned that…
I still have a lot to learn.

P.S. I meant to post this on my birthday, which was Saturday, April 1, but I was partying all weekend so heyyyy.
