10 Things I Learned in the 2010's

Wednesday, 15 January 2020

It's the end of a decade. Literally.

I spent last month reflecting on how my 2010s began and how it ended. In 2010, I was likely asleep, considering I was 12 and tired of life already. In 2019, I was in the living room, watching HBO with my family. When the clock struck midnight, we cheered, 'Happy New Year' and went to bed. I wouldn't have wanted it any other way.

In just 10 short years, I've learned a few things - mostly through a lot of embarrassment and failure. Here are 10 Things I Learned in the 2010s. 


1. Teenagehood is a witch with a capital B

2. You'll lose friends but gain better ones

3. The people you love don't dictate who you are

4. The world is too big to stay in one place forever


5. Social media connects people as much as it disconnects everyone else

6. To be honest with yourself is sometimes the hardest to do

7. It's not a bad thing to be human

8. Destiny may not be real, but you can manifest

9. Everyone is figuring it out

10. Home is not a place, it is a feeling.


What is something you learned in the 2010s?

with love,
Bash Harry
