Hi everyone! I hope so far your 2018 is going well, mines been quite rocky but as they say January is a trial month, the real difference starts in February! Today I wanted to talk about the things that I want to leave behind in 2017 to make 2018 a more positive year! I hope this can inspire some of you, enjoy reading!
The first thing that I learnt in 2017 is that not everyone who seems to be your friend, is a true friend. I met so many amazing new people in 2017 that I know I could trust with everything, however I also found a few people who I’ve known for a long time, are not the best people. I’ve learnt that I need to be able to identify my real friends and I’m pretty much there really!
Secondly I’ve learnt to leave behind in 2017 is to not hurt yourself/ do things you dont want to for others. Do not try to impress others by doing things that hurt you or make you uncomfortable. Always make it about yourself because at the end when there’s no one, you have got to stand up for your own self and show that you’re stronger than people think!
I’ve also learnt to not hesitate being confident. I’ve struggled with confidence my whole life but 2017 really helped me boost it up. Like I said, I met so many new people and made new friends which I couldn’t have done without being confident. One of the most amazing things I did was be a part of the production of Les Miserable with Batley and Spen Theatre Company. I cannot stress enough how much this has helped me come out of my comfort zone in a good way!
And finally, I’ve learnt to leave all the people who brought negativity into my life behind. I’ve learnt to not hold on to people that you know are toxic for you, when you know someone isn’t good for you, weather that’s a family member, a boyfriend/girlfriend or a friend, just leave them because all they’ll do is upset you.
Those are all few of the many things I learnt in 2017, I hope you all enjoyed reading!
Thank you, Saba x
