16 Simple but Sweet Lessons on Life

Article Updated on January 1, 2020.

Turning sixteen is a major milestone, but try not to sweat the fact that you are one year older – there is still a plethora of life to live and learn.

Here are sixteen simple but sweet lessons on life that I’ve learned throughout my sixteen years.

Everything will be OK

  • It may not be apparent at this moment, but there is a bright light at the end of every tunnel.

Suicide is NOT a Solution

  • Suicide is never the answer. Regardless of how it feels, there are people on this earth who care.

Protect your Vessel

  • Make peace with your mind and body. Appreciate being unique – don’t destroy your health to look like someone else.

Stay Active

  • Physical activity is the ultimate key to a healthy mind, body,  and soul.

Eat Cake

  • That’s all. You know you deserve it!

Be Social Media Smart

  • Social media is not 100% transparent. Not every follower has good intentions. If you are feeling pressured or bullied by someone online, report them or tell someone. It is always a good idea to unfollow or block any profile that doesn’t leave you feeling positive.


  • Grades don’t determine who you are, but they are important in moving from point A to point B.

Be Good to Your Brain

  • Always put your mental health first. If your brain doesn’t receive enough TLC, your body won’t be happy.

Speak Up

  • Everyone encounters stress, and everyone has different ways of dealing with things. Don’t be ashamed to ask for help – you will thank yourself in the long run.

Tune it Out

  • Music can always brighten a moods.

Girls Rule

  • Many boys are not taught to respect girls as much as they should.

Together We Are Stronger

  • Maintain the friends who will stand by and support you when things get tough.

Be Passionate

  • For example, discover a band that you love and don’t be afraid to obsess over them.

Know Your Worth

  • Don’t base your self worth off what others say. Remember that we are all simply reflections of one another.

Enjoy Life

  • Go to concerts, have a dance party, laugh till you cry – whatever it is that make you happy, do it!


  • When all else fails, be yourself.
