25 Things I Wish I Could Tell My Younger Self : Part 3

As I had said earlier, I've compiled another list of 5 things I wanted to share with you.

I know I know, I couldn't keep up with the regularity of posting this series. That's one bit of advice for you as well today, time management.

Alright, let's get into it!



1) Don't be afraid of being your own company. Growing up often makes us go through a difficult time and makes us prone to be depressed about the little things in life. Like being alone. However, it's not a bad thing at all! Spending time with your thoughts allows you to discover yourself and to be comfortable with solitude. It's peaceful, almost meditative in a way. There's no pressure to sustain a conversation, and honestly, life is better without filler chatter!

2) Be smart with who you trust. I'd say trust yourself the most! It's the sad reality of today that people climb the success ladder by pulling others down, so you never know who's going to betray you.

3) An offshoot of the above thought, betrayal by friends can be a difficult thing to deal with, but I promise you'll get through it. Just feel whatever you have to and then release it into the universe with a humble prayer for strength to tide over it! It works, it really does. And when it does, you'll be that much more resilient. Also, this is an opportunity to see where you went wrong too, and try rectifying that in future relationships. That's the sensible way to deal with mucky issues.

4) Listen to more music. It doesn't get more relaxing than this. Okay, maybe massages can, but that's not a solo job and this is. It's a delight to visit old favourites on youtube, you'll feel such a rush of memories flood your mind! And sometimes, check out that hilarious 90s Govinda bollywood songs too, cringey but in a very funny way! Laughter makes everything better!

5) Learn more about managing finances and low waste living while you're still at home. Hostel life sudden pushes you into a new world where you call the shots on everything. A few pizzas here, a little bit of new cosmetics there and bam, you've overshot your budget and also cluttered up your closet and have done all that while gaining unhealthy weight! Your family has a lot to teach you by their daily activities of being money wise and utilizing everything to the max, learn it proudly!
