If their was any advice that you could give a younger person who was just making their way in the world what would it be?
Always get your oil changed before the check oil light comes on.
Always pay your rent.
If a friend says "here hold this," as a cop pulls them over..... They are not your friend! LOL!
Smile, even if you don't feel like it. Fake it till you make it.
Stay faithful to your spouse when you get married.
Say you are sorry to your kids when you mess up. It shows them A LOT about you, not only as a parent but as a person.
Your "Credit score" has nothing to do with getting a credit card... It is actually a number that will follow you, haunt you, make you or break you. It defines your "worth" in the world.
Don't be afraid to try new things ...
Learn from your mistakes so they're something positive ...
Listen to older folks who have lived many life cycles. Experience is a valuable learning tool. You can use that to avoid a lot of problems instead of having to learn the hard way.
never give up
Yes, we have gone through the EXACT same things you did . . . People and relationships aren't all that much different . . So when adults offer advice (also known as wisdom) . . There's a chance you could be saved grief . . . And even get through life that much further, stronger . . . Whatever.
All wisdom need not be experienced to learn . . .
You won't know till you try.
Watch where your going.
No procreation before an education.
Take care of yourself 😊just as good as you take care of others. Don't take care of anyone better than you take care of yourself that includes children and spouses you're just as important as they are.
Always be your own best friend 🤗.
- you shouldn't worry about what other people think of you so much... They have their own shiz-it to deal with. You aren't their main topic of thought . Just cos you're the centre of your own universe doesn't mean you're the centre of every one else's... I know that's hard to believe but it's true 😮 ...so chill :p
- *** when someone shows you who they are ... Believe them**** ( good or bad) <-- that one is important and I wish I'd learned it years ago. It's a new lesson for me :)
- appreciate your good health ... You have no idea what a gift it is until you or someone you love losses it.
-don't ever sit out a "dance" cos you're scarred to get hurt... You'll find the older you get you regret the things you didn't do much more than the things you did ... SO DANCE ! ( insert sappy country song here :p )
Also I'm very intoxicated right now and I'm giving my self a time out from stuff for 30 minutes ... And I'm online ... Prooooobably not a good idea to post stuff online while intoxicated... That's a good lesson too!!! Oh ! This is a lesson for me tomorrow then ... So that means you're never to old to learn something. This all makes sense cos I said so ... If not I will delete it tomorrow :) I'm supposed to be in the shower now 😡 Oh ! Sappy country song BAM !
Always remember two things:
You have value just because you exist, and you also have value because you have something to offer others.
If you know that and believe it, you can get through just about anything.
1.) People will always give you unsolicited advice. Just listen to what they have to say. You don't have to use it. (Sometimes though, people really do know what they are talking about.)
2.) Don't be afraid to ask for help, or for something to be clarified. It will prevent problems later on.
And last but probably the most important...
3.) When you make a mistake, and you will because everyone does, own it. Learn from it. Apologize. Then move on.
