Reblog: I’m finally 18! Here’s what I’ve learned

These are brilliant life lessons. Not my post originally!

Having suffered from anxiety and depression for so long, I NEVER thought I’d make it to my 18th birthday. Suicide was always on my mind or I always thought that my father would end my life before it. But here I am! Healthy and feeling grateful to be alive.
So I thought I’d share with you 18 things I’ve learned in my 18 years of living:

  1.  Speak to yourself as you would speak to your best friend
    When I recognised how horribly I was critiquing myself in my head constantly, it shocked me. I thought, if I’d never speak to my friends like that then why I would I speak to myself like that?
  2. Rejection isn’t always personal
    When I confessed to my crush  that I liked him, he rejected me. Not because there was something wrong with me, but because he wanted to focus on his career instead of than love at this time…

    I am so glad you made 18. Way to go. You have already defeated half your demons. I know how hard it is to have to face your demons and live to tell about it. And WOOHOO here you are not only talking but reasons to celebrate. YEEEESSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!

    • This was written by someone who has turned 18, I turned 18 a while ago. I truly believe that what she learned is amazing. I’m still shocked I made it to 18 though, so thank you 🙂 x

        awesome 18 is a good age and I hope you experience it well. Keep writing. Sorry I am late to reply but I have been doing a lot of writing and it sometimes takes an emotional toll on me. Buy I am glad for you

      • I wouldn’t say I had defeated any of my demons yet- I feel like I smash them down, only for them to come back. I turned 18 years ago, but I wish I could go back in time and fix my life back then. Hope you’re ok x
