28 things I’ve learned in 28 years

I recently turned 28 (all the Virgos in the house say ayyeeee), and during my birthday I like to reflect on the year that has passed with things I have learned, and things I would like to gladly forget. Here are 28 things I have learned in 28 years of living.

  2. When a man says he isn’t ready for a relationship, walk away (fast!)
  3. Implement a self-care routine at least once a week.
  4. Do not feel guilty for taking days off (even if you work from home!)
  5. You only need a handful of GOOD friends.
  6. Keep some parts of your life a mystery!
  7. Treat people how you would like to be treated (even if they don’t deserve it)
