14 Things I Learned From 2014 (That Will Make 2015 So Much Better)

14 Things I learned from 2014:

1. Make plans based off what you want to do, not what you feel obligated to do. You don't owe anyone anything. And forcing yourself to be present somewhere you dont want to be is likely to result in pissing someone off anyway.
2. Posting pictures depicting a happy life won't make you happy.
3. Ask house rules BEFORE the game starts.
4. You have the right to change your mind about the things you like/dislike whenever you want. You don't have to still like all the things you did yesterday. We all change. Don't let anyone make you feel bad for that.
5. The most important thing to look for in someone is their belief in you. One of the most damaging things you can do to yourself is to spend a lot of time with someone that thinks (and treats you like) you're going no where. 
6. Don't buy tickets of any kind as a surprise gift for someone. It never works out. 
7. It still hurts sometimes even after its done healing.
8. Check your friend's car for all your belongings before you get out. Its not your friend's job to help you get your shit together.
(But the best ones will make three unscheduled trips in one night back to your house anyway.)
9. If someone really loves you, you'll know. You won't have to wonder if they do.
10.Don't make major life decisions around other people. There's no guarantee that they'll still be there after you move, after you sign a lease, or after everything falls apart. So make sure you're doing what you're doing for you. 
11.There's a right way and a wrong way to love someone. Appreciation is the only right way. Don't let your jealousy or the expectations you have of that person get in the way of their happiness (or your happiness). 
12.Sometimes there's nothing you can do. And screaming at the sky has never changed anything, but if it helps with the feeling of helplessness, do it. 
13.There will be times in your life when you're just someone's ice cream and Netflix binge. Don't hold it against them when its over.
14. Everything is temporary. And if you live correctly, that statement doesn't have to be sad.
