you need to say how/ what you are feeling. People arent mind readers if you need help you have to ask for it

For me it's be extremely careful in who you trust and who you put your time and effort into

Oh my, there are so many but here are just a few I've learned...

1. Being grateful turns what you have into enough.
2. Expectation is the root of all heartache.
3. If you're not happy single, you won't be happy taken. Happiness comes from within, not from men.
4. Don't let yourself become so concerned with raising a good kid that you forget that you already have one :)
5. You already have the answers. You just have to be quiet enough and learn to listen. Trust your gut.

And finally...
6. Be good to those who are good to you and FUCK the rest of them thefinger

"There but for the race of god go I" Live every day to the fullest really.

And most importantly, trust no one!

Some good respomses here already.
I don't actually believe in God, but I have learned that I do believe in Karma - what goes around comes around.
Keep your herat locked away, untill you know her well.
Too good to be true is usually a biggy.
Not all friends are friends, some are feinds....
You cant't please everyone, so please yourself. I don't mean sexually here ladies and gentlemen!!

Just a few to go by....

Just two:
1. Never wish ill even for your worst enemy.
2. Never loose temper, be prepared to listen calmly; maybe he/she has a point to ponder.

That there's no point in dwelling on the shitty mistakes you've made in the past. Your mistakes have made you who into YOU are so there's no point in saying, 'If I hadn't...' or 'If only I'd...'

Be yourself! If you can't be yourself then your never going to be happy! Then you'll never find happiness outside of yourself! You'll never be able find beauty or love ! From being myself I have learned more about life and its lessons than anything else!

Just to love and be loved it return.

Oh wait, that's from Moulin Rouge.

How about for us in what you can control and don't let the rest stress you out.

I think one of the most important things I have learned is even though I was born with a lot of health problems there are others worse off than me. Yes, I've had nine surgeries in my life and I have countless operations. I’m grateful that even though I have been through open heart surgery, kidney surgery, etc that I’m able to function fully. I've never had to be on a waiting list, I've never had a transplant. Yes, I've had a kidney removed but I didn't need it replaced. I’m lucky, in my eyes. I know that it could be a lot worse. My life isn't perfect, it’s even harder than a lot of others but it’s easier than others.

Thanks. I'm young but I have tried to remember others have it worse. You've got to keep your head up.

Bi-curious girls are straight, not bisexual. It's okay to have sex with them, but don't get emotionally attached.

Never trust someone you have lent money to and have never paid you back. They'll walk all over you.....

- the strongest relationships are build on honestly and communication

- if you have ill thoughts of someone never speak them, you never know if your words could reach their ears.

- nothing good comes from going back to bed in the morning.

First be yourself and you have to be just like everyone else. Individuality is great.

Second to quit worrying about what everyone else thinks. Too many people running around wondering what everyone thinks about what they are doing. And there are way too many people that love to tell you what you are doing wrong and what is wrong with you when they don't even know who they are to begin with.
