10 things I wish you had never learned

1. I wish I had never learned that self-worth is determined by sex appeal.

2. I wish I had never learned that being emotional is a sign of weakness.

3. I wish I had never learned that it’s better to follow societal norms instead of doing what makes you happy.

4. I wish I had never learned that you can’t always count on who you think you can.

5. I wish I had never learned that parents know best.

6. I wish I had never learned that it’s rude to call people on their prejudices.

7. I wish I had never learned that your parents will love you no matter what.

8. I wish I had never learned that my singing is annoying.

9. I wish I had never learned that I look silly dancing.

10.  I wish I had never learned that being considered attractive is directly related to what size jeans you wear.

These are the things that I have been told/ learned over the past almost 30 years. Some may be truths (like the dancing) and some not. Regardless of that fact, they inhibited personal growth in some manner and some still do to this day.
