We all have good days and bad days. Sometimes the good days stretch themselves out like a comfortable blanket. The bad days also claim their fair share in our life. Especially when we are young, we can go from bright and vivacious to low and depressed very easily. Here are 21 reminders for every 21 year old needs to hear.
1. It is okay if you don’t know exactly what you want to do with your life.
2. Even if your friends have boyfriends and you don’t, you are not going to be alone all your life.
