28 Lessons in 28 Years


As the advice giver amongst my friends, I always find myself thinking of what advice I can share with others. I would say at 28 years old, I have some wisdom that should be shared. This does not mean, in any way, that I am all-knowing or perfect. This list is of lessons I've learned over the course of my life so far. 




1. No one's family is perfect, most families are dysfunctional 
and all families have problems. 
2. There is always room for improvement. 
3. Friends who challenge you, push you, support you and are there for you are the only kind of friends you want around. 
4. It's okay to not be productive every waking moment of every single day. 
5. Making time for yourself is essential. 
6. Taking care of your mind (mental health), body (physical health) and heart (emotional health) is important. No one health is more important than the other. 
7. Fake positivity is just as bad as constant negativity. 


8. Skincare is very important, regardless of what kind of skin a person has. 
9. Makeup is a choice, not a requirement. 
10. Healthy looks different on every person. 
11. Clothing stores all have different sizing which can negatively impact mental health.
12. Professional dress does not mean black, white or grey. 
13. Accepting yourself is an important part of mental health.
14. What works for others doesn't always work for you.


15. Using cheap, harmful hair products is a big way to flip off your own hair.
16. Everyone has insecurities. 
17. Pets offer unimaginable mental and emotional support.
18. Dating can be stressful, rewarding, draining and disappointing. 
19. Love comes in many forms. Everyone loves and needs to be loved differently.
20. People are complex and don't always fit in a neat little box.
21. Living alone can be wonderful and awful at the same time. 


22. Life is expensive.
23. Traveling can give you the most rewarding experiences.
24. Social media is both a blessing and a curse.
25. When you show you are capable, people will always expect you to go above and beyond. 
26. Working in corporate can drain you mentally and emotionally.
27. Higher education doesn't do enough to prepare students for the realities of working in the workforce or guide on realistic compensation. 
28. Smiling makes people view you as approachable.
