"20 Things I learned by the time I was 20"
1) A lot of people will come and go throughout your life. Sometimes it will hurt like Hell. Sometimes it will be subtle and quiet. No matter how it happens, see it as a lesson to be learned.
2) It’s normal to not know what you’re doing with your life. Plans change, life happens. Don’t panic. Go with the flow and learn as much as you can.
3) Don’t ever let someone mistreat you and then convince you that you deserve to be mistreated. You’re better than that.
4) Everyone has flaws. They are what make us human. They are what make us unique. They are what make us beautiful.
5) It’s okay to cancel on friends and stay in for the night. Recharge and relax.6) Experiment and test your limits. It’s normal. But only as long as you stay safe and smart about it.

i will reblog this every time
I worked with a lady that came into work one day with no hair. No one mentioned it, no one talked about it. She was wearing a bandana so we all knew she was bald.
But I have ADD, and not so great control of my impulsiveness. Finally, near the end of the night I asked. “So… can I ask, what happened to your hairs?”
She smiled and hugged me. I was the only person with the cajones to ask. “My best friend is pregnant, already has a 4 yr old, and was diagnosed with cancer, and her boyfriend left her because it was too much. So I’ve been helping her out, being supportive. And I promised her if she started losing her hair I would shave my head too.”
“Last night she called me, crying because her hair was falling out in clumps. I told her I’d be there in 10 minutes. She shaved me first, then I her.”
It’s the most supportive thing she could think to do.
I just started crying.
