Life lessons to my twelve-year-old me

When I was twelve years old I had made a couple of mistakes. I’ve learned a lot from this and now I know for sure how I could do things the other way. Curious what?

Always make summaries

I know I didn’t use any summaries. I have always learned the whole book out of my head and that just doesn’t work. Of course I was stressing out a lot, because I needed to learn way too much. Literally 1/2 I learned was useless.

Don’t trust everyone around you

Earlier I trusted people way too fast. I didn’t know who I needed to trust and how I could test that trust. I believed that everyone would do the school stuff before the deadlines expired and I thought that everyone was on my side. Well, that clearly wasn’t the case.

Enjoy while you can

When I was twelve, I thought I had so much to do. I thought it was much to write an article from around 200 words, but now I always write articles of at least 300 words. Also, I thought I was always super busy with school. I thought my subjects were absolutely horrible and I thought this would get better when I was older. Well, that wasn’t the case and now I notice that totally. I talk often about the fact that I am super busy now, but you will see that I will be way more busy on the university haha.

Promote your blog

When I just started with my blog, I didn’t know I could promote my blog. I was always waiting patiently for comments, but those never came, because nobody knew about my blog.

Don’t let you stop by others

I always let myself stop by others. The comments or other reactions were a lot worth for me and that was pretty bad. I was pretty scared to blog about other things I wanted and I was pretty scared to say the things I wanted.

Of course, I am just seventeen years old and that’s why I think it is pretty hard to give my twelve-year-old me life lessons. I know I am going to learn way more from myself when I get older.

What are the life lessons to your twelve-year-old you?

    Mijn dingen komen redelijk overeen, vooral het vertrouwen in mensen. Ooit had ik dat te goed en nu heb ik dat te slecht. Achter alles zoek ik meer dan zou moeten, maar we zijn hier op de wereld om met elkaar en van elkaar te leren toch?

    Ik denk dat mijn lessen wel overeen komen Ik vertrouw mensen nu echt heel lastig, omdat ik dit eerst te makkelijk deed. De laatste tip gaat ook nog steeds op. Gelukkig heb je nog ruim de tijd dit soort dingen toe te passen.

    Laat ik maar niet gaan kijken naar mijn 12-jarige ik. Ik was eigenlijk echt een nerdje, haha.
