3 Pieces of Advice You’ll Want to Remember

1. Happiness is not the absence of problems, but the ability to deal with them. Remind yourself, you are doing the best you can with what you have in this moment. Recognize what you can and cannot control. You are in control of yourself –others you have no control over.


2. Realize that the world is not black and white/ right and wrong. There may be ways that you view the world, ways that you believe in doing things, in living life that are right for you that may be wrong for others. Not everyone will accept who you are, just as you may not accept everyone for who they are. That is okay. You do not need to like everyone or be liked by everyone. Be yourself, do not harm others, and live your life.


3. If you care about your relationships, don’t argue for the sake of being right. Be willing to listen and tell the truth even when it is uncomfortable to hear. Seek out guidance from others rather than pretending to know all, but don't be ashamed to admit when you have knowledge to share.
