My High School Experience.
I graduated this week, so today I thought I would talk a bit about my experience. I guess I never thought High School would be the way it was. I always thought that I'd have the perfect friends, go to the most fun school, have the perfect boyfriend, and simply have a good time. That's what I'd always dreamed of, at least. But, as it came to an end, I realized that I didn't exactly enjoy my time whatsoever. High school was NOT for me. In fact, they were probably the worst years of my life. Depressing? Yep. But I really want to be real with you guys. The point of this post is not to talk about what bad things happened during this time..but rather to tell you what I've learned. Hopefully my mistakes and what I've seen in High School will help some of you out, or at least encourage you to be the best you, you can be.
Firstly, the word "Friend" is a big word, so don't use it like I once did, very freely. A friend is someone who loves you for you. Who helps you when you need it. Who is loyal.
Secondly, following trends is one of the biggest traps that people fall into, and one of the biggest mistakes. You only live once (Please don't think I agree with the whole "Yolo" thing, because I really don't haha), and I truly believe Kurt Cobains words when he said that being someone else is a waste of the person you are.
Thirdly, don't just fall for any guy my lovely lady viewers. I fell into this trap once or twice, and I saw so many girls fall for any guy, and let me tell you, it got them in trouble. Falling in love with a man is so much different than simply being attracted to them. Get to know them before you commit!
Fourthly, speak out about your problems. I had and still have a tendency to simply write instead of talk to people and get help on them. It was one of the biggest mistakes in the world. I went through so much pain, with loved ones dying, and yet I fell silent. My smile was only on the outside, on the inside my world was falling apart.
Those are probably the top 4 things I would say were a big deal for me or the other people in my life in High School. Although in a way, they were good things. They made me realize what I didn't want to be like someday. They made me stronger.
What did you guys learn during your years in High School?
