I’ll admit it, I racked my brain for days, trying to come up with something. But I’m not wise. I wish I was. I could pass on better advice, and I would make better decision than I have. All I have are a few words that keep me company as I make my way in the world, and perhaps they would do you some good too.
There are mean people out there, and you just have to ignore them. Sometimes the meanest and darkest people won’t show their faces until you’ve learned to trust them. But that’s the chance you have to take to be close to people.
Trust your instincts. Most of the time, they’re spot on. We just don’t trust ourselves enough.
All knowledge is worth having. That’s why we have books.
Every one is afraid. It’s facing that fear that makes us brave. Unless you hear horror music playing in the background; then I would run. But not upstairs.
Don’t judge. Everyone is different and will accept different situations. Everyone has traveled different paths to be where they are. You and I won’t understand each other or any one else fully.
Everything is a phase. Some days will rock. Some days will roll. Some days will just plain suck.
Remember to be true to yourself because you have to live with yourself forever.
