This is me in my early 20’s. Energetic, optimistic and excited about the future.
1. Know yourself
I very much tried to please the people round me all the time. I would have told my younger self that it is impossible to please everyone. I would have told her she was enough. I would have told her to be proud of who she is and who she will become.
2. Try not to worry so much about what people think.
I remember that when somebody was negative towards me, I would question myself and try to change my behavior to please them. As you mature, you will understand that some people are just not going to like you and in most cases their negative projections have nothing to do with you. So chill and focus on the people who love you. Most importantly, continue to love you.
3. Understand that everything happen for a reason.
Both the triumph and challenging situations come as a lesson to facilitate personal growth. This mindset will keep you from investing time in trying to work everything out or fix situations.
