Things I learnt in 2015.

Take everything, and I mean everything, with a pinch of salt. You'll be spared a lot of disappointment because people rarely ever mean what they say.

Never expect reciprocation and hope that others do not expect it too. All people are different and are entitled to think/feel whatever the fuck it is that they want to, including you.

Pick your battles. Not everything is worth putting up a fight for. Sometimes it is best to agree to disagree.

Take everyone at face value. Do not try to read between the lines. It is ambiguous and a completely energy sucker.

If you want something, chase it. You want happiness, you chase it. You want peace, chase it. Things don't just 'happen'.

Everything is an opportunity to learn something. If God has put some person or some situation in your life, it is because He wants you to learn something from it. Be someone God can be proud of.

Love can be a fickle thing. The point is to just love, just send it outwards. It coming back towards you is not a pre-requisite. It won't, a lot of times. But take heart in the fact that you still loved and owned upto it, even when you knew it meant heartbreaks, every moment of everyday. Even when you loved someone incapable of understanding it's depth or they probably had their own story that you couldn't be a part of. Even when you felt like you were walking on broken shards of glass while being out of air to breathe. Know that this will all end one day. You will still love but it won't hurt that much anymore. The air will seep in and you will stop bleeding. And when you come out the other end without any bitterness or any sense of entitlement, you will know the greatness of love.
