25 things I believe in at 25


  1. Love is not something you can search for.
  2. Circumstance and intent define when you fall in love.
  3. At first it’s never love, it is always lust.
  4. Emotional independence is not easy to achieve, but it’s even harder to let go off. 
  5. If you’ve had the same beliefs your entire life, you haven’t been learning much.
  6. Change is not something to be scared of. Even if it goes wrong, you’ll end up learning something.
  7. Success is being happy with your circumstances, and it’s nearly impossible to fully achieve.
  8. There is nothing wrong with mild happiness, you can be simply content with your life. Life doesn’t have to be a rollercoaster to be worth it.
  9. Hate requires an immense amount of effort. Waste your energy in something more valuable.
  10. Words are only as real as you allow them be.
  11. If you keep the malicious things you’ve been told about others to yourself, they will eventually die. You keep them alive by passing them on. 
  12. Slow early mornings cannot result in a bad day.
  13. People you’ve known for more than 10 years can still surprise you. And that’s not always a good thing.
  14. Home is not a place, it’s a feeling.
  15. No one is evil, no one is good. Perspective is a conflicting thing.
  16. There isn’t one definition of happiness. You can’t measure someone else’s happiness by using your standards.
  17. Mum and dad are the two most important people in the world.
  18. Expressing your feelings can never be a bad thing.
  19. Liking yourself is something to own, not something to be embarrassed about.
  20. Don’t look at what others are doing, it won’t add anything to your life.
  21. Beauty is a good enough reason to like something. Not everything needs a deeper meaning.
  22. Owning up to your mistakes always results in a better outcome than hiding them.
  23. Asking people about their life is not an intrusive thing if you truly care for them.
  24. As long as you’re doing your best, there’s nothing to be embarrassed about.
  25. People will love you whether or not you allow it.
