18 Things I Wish My Mom Would Have Taught Me Before I Started High School


1. Your best friend is not always going to be there for you. You’ll have a falling out, it’s normal.

2. Don’t make life decisions based on temporary people.

3. Love is painless, love is good, love is real. Never believe that love doesn’t exist because it does and it will find you when the time is right.

4. Sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes it comes at the worst time possible and you have to know what’s best for you, take care of yourself first.

5. Not everyone is going to like you. There’s nothing you can do about that. Don’t try your hardest to please people that have a negative view on you.

6. It’s okay to go out. Have fun. Be safe.

7. Hang onto people that make you feel good and get rid of the negative. Life is too short to spend time with people that make you miserable.

8. The man with the alcohol on his breath that tells you he wants you, don’t let him talk you into anything. It’s the alcohol talking and he wont want you the next day.

9. Don’t let people use you. Whether it’s for your looks, your brain, or your stuff, fake people are not worth your time.


11. You don’t need attention from guys to be valuable.

12. Don’t give attention to people that you aren’t interested in just because you’re lonely.

13. If you don’t like school because of the people surrounding you, separate yourself from them. High school is temporary.

14. Do what you want because it will make you happy, your happiness should be your top priority.

15. Don’t lie to the people you love. Honesty is important in any relationship.

16. Sometimes it’s better to keep quiet. Not everyone needs to know your business.

17. Stress is relative, adults aren’t going to understand. Remember that they’re also going through things you wouldn’t understand.

18. Pain is temporary, no matter how bad it feels now.
