You Don’t Have to Be in Your 20s to Need This Advice

A list of 19 things to stop doing

Some themes run constantly through DailyHap—autonomy, fearlessness, personal responsiblity—making happiness seem just that easy. We know it’s not. But we’re fans of all sorts of ways to tackle happiness, and we rather like this Thought Catalog author’s take on the pursuit: 19 Things You Should Stop Doing In Your 20s.

No matter your age—we’re looking at you, grannies—you could probably stop one of these things. Two of our faves below, click the above link for all 19!

7. Stop expecting people to be better than they were in high school — learn how to deal with it instead. Just because you’re out of high school doesn’t mean you’re out of high school. There will always be people in your life who want what you have, are threatened by who you are, and will ridicule you for doing something that threatens how they see their position in the world.

10. Stop blaming yourself for being human. You’re fine. Having a little anxiety is fine. Being scared is fine. Your secrets are fine. You’re well-meaning. You’re intelligent. You’re blowing it out of proportion. You’re fine.

Anything you’d add, to tell your 20-year-old (or current) self?
