I suppose the one I like is "treat people the way you want to be treated" but I like "If someone treats you wrong kick them in the balls"

that when you date someone..that is what you get..it will not get better after marriage

so if you have some doubts...think about 50 years..of them

and to realise you cannot change someone..and why should you try...they are who and what THEY are

accept them..or leave them

Not the most important lesson of life, but I'm dying to tell it lol...Here it goes.... Never argue with an idiot, coz if you argue with an idiot, you'll have to step down at their level. And when you are at their level then they are more experienced.....they'll beat you thoroughly. I did it only once and got thorough thrashing... omg is there a way to erase memory from the minddontknow

Don't hold back - if you really want something, invest every ounce of your being in it.
Don't regret - if you didn't attain it, know that your effort was not in vain: sometimes the consolation becomes better than the prize.x

Never knock back a fuck. If you do it is one you can't get back. Even ugly people like to have sex.

This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.

Hamlet Act 1, scene 3, 78–82

To never compromise my principles.

I've learned many things in life.

One thing in particular that I think has helped me tremendously is to focus on the positive. Within that, having an attitude of gratitude lends itself to being thankful for what you have, instead of what you don't. This philosophy relates to my thoughts about myself, my spouse, my career, my finances, my family...everything. Being thankful for the good puts me at peace and gives me the strength to push forward in life regardless of what obstacles present themselves.

Also, I've learned that forgiveness sets me free. Forgiving not only others, but myself as well.

Too many to list, but most recently that you never know when you're going to meet someone special.

The most important thing I've learned is that you have to make your own luck. In the end it doesn't matter if you're born rich, poor, ugly, attractive, smart or stupid. You have to take the hand that was delt to you and play it the best you can. I've seen rich people end up homeless and poor people end up millionaires. Get out of the mentality that other people and your bad luck affect you because that's not the case. You alone hold your life in your hands. Only you can hold yourself back.


I still stand by this. Make your own luck, young bloods.

Knowing you can't change those around you, accept them for who they are. Love and appreciate them as they are.

Think with your head and not your heart. Emotions are great at clouding judgement.

People don't change. If they have hurt you before then they probably will again.

To change that a little - if they've hurt others before you they will hurt you also.

If they're willing to cheat WITH you on the person they told they loved - be aware, very aware when they tell you THEY love you.

The most important things in life can not be thought in the mind but felt in the heart.
