The least I can say about 2017 is that it was full of emotions and surprises and to be honest I did not expect that it would be so difficult. I enjoyed some beautiful moments but I did also experience failures and hard times. But whatever happens, my mom always tells me the importance of learning from my mistakes and finds the lessons behind my failures. This is why I have decided to make an assessment of my year to find the things that I have learned in 2017.
Lesson n°1 : I can’t control everything
First of all, you need to know something about me. I give way too much importance to silly details. I am bit of a control freak. That’s why at the end of the year 2016, I had already planned everything for 2017. Well, you know what ? Nothing went according to plan, in my professional life nor in my personal one. Last year I finally understood that I couldn’t plan everything because life is full of surprises, sometimes for the best and other times for the worst. After all, the challenges along the way may be the reasons why life is exciting.
Lesson n°2 : Friends come and go
People often say that they have made friends for life but it is not always the case and it was time for me to accept it. Life changes us and sometimes certain people evolve just differently. Careful, I am not saying that a friendship can not last a lifetime. I have amazing friends that I am hoping to keep my whole life. I am just saying that just like love stories, friendships are not always eternal. And just like love, trying to maintain a relationship at all costs just for the sake of ends often badly. Everything happens for a reason and it is usually for the best.
Lesson n°3 : I am not perfect and that’s okay
It is a fact that everybody knows and yet I keep forgetting. I struggle with my insecurities at times. Sometimes I don’t feel attractive enough, smart enough or not as successful as others. I am sure it doesn’t only happen to me. The thing is that when it does happen, social media becomes our worst enemy because it only shows people’s “happiness”. It doesn’t mean that they don’t feel insecurities too. Our emotions are real and there is nothing wrong with feeling down, sad or full of doubt sometimes. Being able to feel all that is actually what make us humans. The important thing is to not let it bring you down. Believe me, you are attractive enough, smart enough and stronger than you think. Do not let whoever or whatever (even yourself) convince you otherwise.
Lesson n°4 : Don’t fuck with fuckboys
Just like Dua Lipa I got a new rule, don’t fuck with fuckboys. Probably my 2017 anthem by the way. For those who still don’t know what a fuckboy is well, you are lucky. A fuckboy is a guy whose only objective is to get in your bed and using all strategies possible because unlike a booty call, he is here to stay.
You know he is a Fuckboy if :
- He can’t plan anything because he is always busy but wants you to drop everything when he calls
- Incase of conflicts it is always your faults and when he did something wrong it’s because of you
- If you try to leave him he will tell you all the things you want to hear but doesn’t change when you take him back
- Dear fat girl, if he doesn’t want to be seen in public with you, he is a Fuckboy for sure
I almost got burned this year but attractive as they can be I ain’t got time for this and you either trust me. Boy bye !
