8 Essential Facts To Make Peace With Before You Enter Your 20s:
1. Family is family.
And no, no matter how great and loyal a bunch of friends you have, they can’t replace your family so love it, protect it and respect it for when all else fails, there’s family.
2. There’s life beyond school.
And beyond college and other institutions you shall be a part of. The actual world doesn’t care about petty tiffs and fights. It cares about what you take from it and what you can give. So don’t let one bad day at school or office bring you down.
3. Hard work pays.
You only get back as much as you give. If you really want to succeed in life, in anything you like to do, hard work is your one and only key.

5. The lesser you want, the happier you shall be.
It’s a little world with lots of people so you might not always get what you want. You can’t fulfil every wish but you can sure wish for things that you can fulfil, in turn make yourself satisfied and keep your soul happy.
6. You’ve got to be brave.
Life isn’t always going to be kind to you. It’s important to fight your own battles, stick up for what’s right and have faith in yourself. You’re grown up now. Don’t expect other people to do it for you.
It’s essential to educate yourself about what you do. You don’t have to read bulky texts or large novels. Read about what interests you. If you’re an artist, read about what and who inspires you.
