Life Lessons We Learnt From Lauren Conrad

Untitled Hands held high, I was always an LC gal. Growing up, my crew and I would 'decide' who was who and although fashion and NYC career focused Whit ended up being my alter ego, it was Lauren's wise words that kept me coming back for each episode. That and who doesn't want to see clip after clip of the Hollywood hills? MUST. BOOK. A. TRIP. So in honour of The Hills reunion, how about some life lessons from the one and only LC. That girl knew her stuff...

On mistakes

"You never make the same mistake twice. The second time you make it, it is no longer a mistake. It is a choice."
Mistakes can make you grow but repeating them stops it being just that.

On people

"Life isn't an island, you have to have other people in your life."
I have a few friends who believe this. Heck, I used to believe it. But the warmth you get once you lower your walls and let people in is indescribable.

On negativity

"At the end of the day it's going to hurt your feelings if someone says something mean about you, but I've learned to take a step back and ask myself if it's really going to affect me, if this person who I'm never going to know or meet doesn't like me - and it doesn't."
The world is swamped full of people. Your circle and your family are the only ones that matter. I'm not advocating going through life being an ass but the only opinions you should worry about are from the people who truly know you, your heart and your soul.

On emotions

"Don't cry over someone who wouldn't cry over you."
Pretty simple. No-one enjoys crying unless it's tears of joy. Why waste your life being upset? Only indulge in tears if the person is worth it.

On love

"Love is not a maybe thing, you know when you love someone."
Because when you know, you know. Listening to your head is a wise move but your heart can lead to the most spectacular things.

On settling

"When you are looking to meet someone, you are looking to settle. Becaue you are not looking for someone, you are looking for anyone"
Basically never settle. Always go after what YOU want, not what someone else wants.

On marriage

"You have the rest of your life to be married. Enjoy falling in love. When girls get caught up in the timeline, it becomes more about the wedding than the marriage. You should be with someone with whom you could elope this weekend and be happy."
Go against the norm and do things when you're ready. And be with the person who you can't imagine a single day without.

On work

"When you do multiple things you love, it doesn't feel like work."
Find a job you love and you'll never view it as a job. Go after your passions, there's a reason they're called your passions.

On friends

"I’d rather have a few true friends than a lot of fake crappy ones."
Strength in numbers sure, but you can be the peak of loneliness in a big group. Value your closest friends and make sure to maintain those relationships.

On happiness

"Sometimes you just have to take a step back and realise what is important in your life, what you can live with but most importantly what you can’t live without."
Go after what makes you happy and always be grateful. There's always, always something to be thankful for.

On pain

"Sometimes things have to get worse before they can get better."
A tough one but true. You'll only know light once you've been through the darkness.

On getting real

"Sometimes you have people in your life who you just can’t be friends with."
Harsh but sometimes valid. Whether it's an ex friend or an old love, some people you can only love from a distance or have to switch off for the sake of your own sanity.
