Things I Have Learned In Life
You (and you alone) make yourself happy.
Healthy relationships are about trust, accountability and mutual respect.
Have the respect to be honest with yourself.
Everyone has flaws. Learn your own and work to improve, harnessing their positive aspects.
There are two sides to every situation. Rarely are they mutually exclusive.
Not everything requires positive or negative evaluation. Some things just are.
Life has the meaning you give it.
Know your values. It will help you decide what is really important.
Do things for yourself, not other people.
Spiteful emotions do more harm to those who hold them. Forgiveness means letting go and healing.
Surround yourself with people who want the same things from life.
It’s okay to make mistakes - as long as you learn from them.
Truly being sorry for something means making every effort to never do it again.
If you have to lie about something, why are you doing it?
Intuition is a powerful instrument. Listen to it.
Accept the things you cannot change. Change the things you can.
Always choose to be. Take chances. You are far more likely to regret those things you never got to experience.
Words are merely symbols, and always inadequate.
