13. I Enjoy Spending Time On My Own
This is something that I’ve realised as I’ve grown older. The thing I’ve realised alongside that is that it’s okay to want to spend time on your own. I work with people all day and I’m not ashamed to admit that after I while I need to be by myself in order to recharge. I like people and thrive off their ideas and their energy, but I can’t be around that all the time otherwise I feel super wiped out.
14. Be Kind To Other People
It’s not that this just goes without saying, it is that I truly believe that what goes around comes around. If you’re nasty to people, people will be nasty and/or ignore you. If you’re nice to people, then they will probably be nicer to you. Kant would say that that was immoral because I am doing it for personal gain. I can’t say that personal gain is at the top of my mind when I ask if some old lady needs help with her shopping (cliche abound), but as I said; what goes around, comes around.
15. And Be Kind To Yourself
Equally, if not more important, than the rule above. You are only human and there is only so much you can do. Even Michelle Obama and Beyoncé have their bad days; just because we don’t see them doesn’t mean that they don’t happen. We all have skills and talents that make us special. Don’t just focus on your flaws – but on the stuff that makes you awesome as well.
16. If You Don’t Want To Do Something… Be Honest
Tell you friends if you can’t make it to an event, or if you don’t want to go. Don’t just blow people off – you’ll lose them pretty quickly.
