Learn to Take Care of Yourself
I'd hate to find that you let yourself slip so far into the abyss, because you were waiting on someone to rescue you. I want us to care about ourselves more. I want us to understand that the only person capable of saving you is you. I often see people sit in depression just to see who will come around to help them. Basing their importance on what people will and won't do for them. Accusing friends of not being there for them, and totally disregarding the fact that everyone has their own stuff going on. Sometimes I see people ignore the help that they get, because they are so focused on testing a certain persons care for them. You may not always be surrounded by people you love and care about, but you are only truly alone if your soul is empty. Work on you. Love you before expecting others to love you. Give yourself respect so you can recognize when it is no longer present in your relationships. This will give you the ability to make the choice of walking away from people who do not treat you how you deserve. You set the bar. Expand your own mind. Become your own person. Figure out why things make you feel the way they do, and be confident enough to validate your own feelings. There are people who will make you feel like a villain for doing what's best for you, keep going. Make conscious choices. Cater to yourself.

I am young, and still trying to figure this adult thing out. I come from a West Indian household, and my life has been a series of unexpected events, like most.
