A Few Tips From Me To You

Sometimes people just need some help to get through life's difficulties.

A Few Tips From Me To You
Reno Taho

We all go through life with our own struggles. But a lot of times we will find other people have gone through similar situations. So I'm here to share a few tips about the things I've went through in case anyone else can relate and/or needs help.

1. Don't worry about boys.

Boys come and go, especially when you are young. Middle school, high school, and sometimes even your first few years of college are full of boys who don't know what they want or who they are. They tend to want one thing from girls, and it's OK. Because while you are this young you don't need to be attached to a boy, you need to go out and do all of the things you desire. You will have time for a real man later on in life.

2. Put yourself first.

A lot of times it is hard to focus on yourself. If you are like me you always want others to be happy and to see them succeed. But once you have helped everyone else get where they want to be, you will realize most of them just used you and now you are left alone, and that's not where you want to be.

3. Tell your parents you love them.

One day your parents won't be around, for whatever reason. So cherish them now. Even if you do not get along with your parents, try your best. Try to spend as much time as you can with them now, and one day you will be glad you did.

4. Focus on the positives.

With negative things happening all over the world, everyday, to everyone at some point, you need to focus on the light at the end of the tunnel. Even the smallest thing, if it is a positive, focus on it. It will help the bad times and make the good times come faster.

5. It's ok to get a C.

I'm not saying slack off in school but that one C you got in physics or English, whatever it may have been, it's ok. It is not the end of the world and you can still get into a good college or graduate school. Just focus really hard on the next class. You can do this. Like I said before, just stay positive.

6. It's ok to not look like a model.

I know girls mostly struggle with this one. Always having to compete with the girls in the magazine or even the girl next to you. But it's OK if you aren't as "pretty" as them. "Pretty" is different to everyone, and not everyone looks like a model. One day you will find someone who finds you the most beautiful girl in the world, but they will also love you for your flaws.

7. Stay true to yourself.

No matter what changes over the years, or who changes, always stay true to yourself. Always make sure you stand up for what you believe in and you never change to impress someone. People come and go, but you will always have to deal with yourself, so make sure you like the person you are. That way, when everything else changes, you have yourself to look to.

There are a lot of other problems and words of advice, but these are the ones I find most important. These are the ones I live by day by day. I hope you can take these and make your life a happier place. Remember to live fully, breathe deeply, and love madly.

Freshly popped buttered popcorn in your lap and a glass full of crisp Coca-Cola is at your side. All the lights are turned off and you are tucked into a cozy blanket. You have the whole day off and no responsibilities besides refilling your popcorn bucket. Now all you have to do is decide on what movie to watch, but you know one movie will not fulfill your need of relaxing all day. A movie marathon is the only answer to your problem. In case you did not know what movie series to start with, try a few of these.

What was usually buried at the bottom of my purse has now become a pocket essential — and I know I'm not alone in that.

It used to be something I'd use if I happened to be at a restaurant that ran out of soap in their bathroom, but now it's almost more essential to have on-hand at all times than my cell phone.

I have been working at Dunkin' Donuts for over two years, and during this time, I have progressed from regular crew member to crew coach, and finally, to shift leader. Among my great skills involving the job is my ability to deal with stressful situations, including awful customers. My boss has continuously pointed out the fact that I am able to handle these people with grace and kindness. She herself often finds that she gets snippy with rude customers, but somehow I am able to keep a straight face through these tough times.

Let's be real here — sometimes essential oils and acknowledging all five senses (touch, see, hear, smell, taste) just don't cut it when you need to cope. It's those days when you have so much rage that you don't even know what to do with yourself, or those days when you physically cannot stop crying because of the most suffocating sadness, or all those other days when you are craving healthy coping mechanisms that actually work.

But before I let you in, we need to continue being real. I hope you are comforted with the knowledge that before I uncovered (or, even wanted to uncover) healthy mechanisms, I also went through my drought of horrible coping mechanisms. I have, and sometimes continue, to fall short of genuinely trying to help myself. It takes a lot of courage, and energy, to genuinely try and help yourself.
