Feliz Año Nuevo!
Dear Toni in 2017,
As the new year arrives I want you to know what 2016 has taught you and this wisdom will help you get through what 2017 has to offer.
You will turn 30 by the end of this new year and you will meet a lot of more people in this lifetime. You will have to deal with different kinds of people too. There will be those who will test your patience, your limits and your boundaries. They will cross the line and you will be tempted to cross it too. Sometimes you might even have crossed the line yourself. These people will provoke you until you become somebody you hate to be. There will be assholes and there will be douchebags and these people will have no conscience. You can never expect them to feel what you want them to feel. What means something to you might not even mean anything to them. But at the end of the day, you will have to walk your life and they will have to walk theirs. You have to keep telling yourself that there will always be worst people out there and things could have been bad but at least you were still able to survive it. Learn to know when to walk away or when to play dumb.
Choose your battles wisely.
This year’s going to be tougher than graduate school has been tough on you.
Welcome to the real world (again), graduate.
Toni from 2016
