  2. We are only given a certain amount of time on this planet. So don’t live in the past nor the future because you will lose today. I have learned to appreciate the little things, and don’t get upset about stupid things. If you won’t be upset with it 5 years from now then don’t let it upset you now. Live in the moment, soak it in, because once it’s gone it will never return. And most importantly, gain wisdom, knowledge and understanding. (Zhanetta, 21)
  3. If you have friends or family that always have drama or cause you stress no matter how much time you have invested in the relationship you should quit now!

(Kimberly, 38)
  4. Nothing good ever comes from bragging about yourself. People either get jealous, or want to challenge you to show there superiority or want to use you for your skills. Keep a low profile and enjoy what you can achieve. (Jon S., 36)

  6. True happiness is to share mutual and deep love. For this, you need to be open and good, moreover may luck be on your side. When pain blinds you, search hope within yourself, accept to hold the hands of your dear ones and slowly open your eyes to walk again. For all other matters, success mostly relies on your hard work. Fight for your dreams today as you would be the only one to blame for your regrets of tomorrow. There is only one life, so live it your way! (Claire T., 27)

  38. I spent much of my life trying to please others, worrying about their feelings, and making decisions based on their approval. What I now realize, after I finally woke up, is that I lived their idea of my life. I now wonder how did I get here? What was I thinking? I wasn’t.

  49. From my own selfish experience… don’t ever use someone for their money. Don’t ever take and take and expect to not be held accountable for it at some point.
