      wash ever 2nd day so doesn't dry out? do you use conditioner sometimes instead of soap.. I hear that is a trick.
      Immediately remove toxic- I hear ya, but don't agree because sometimes those are the people you will learn th emost from. however, you are going to suffer being around them as you know.

  • Don't hang on to something that you will not remember in 5 years. There is no point of being upset or angry about something that you won't remember in the long run. Focus on the life you live now because it could change. Don't take it for granted.

What Guys Said 13

  • Don't waste your life away. In other words, go for it. Don't let it pass you by while you decide what to do with it.

    This is part of the first one. Knock off the video games, computer, and internet already. That's not the real world. The real world is outside the door.

    Take care of your health. Eat right. Get exercise. Avoid injuries.

    Money is over-rated. Sunsets, walking in the rain, and laughing with friends is free.

    Nip bad habits in the bud.

    Don't procrastinate.

    Save money. That's not a contradiction to money being over-rated. You need to find a balance, and save for retirement or a rainy day.

    Stop and smell the roses. That's free also.

    What kind of stories will you tell your grand children? Will they be bored? Or will the say "Wow grandma/pa, that's really cool."? Think really hard about that.

    You can't carry the world on your shoulders. Stop trying, it'll only make you feel like shit. Go keep the old lady across the street company. Hold the door open for someone and smile. That's what makes the world better, not being crushed by the weight of carrying the whole thing. Multiply those little things by a few billion people and it far outweighs all the negative stuff you see in the news.

    Grow up.

    Don't grow up.

    Grow a vegetable garden. Grow a flower garden. Both of them. Put the flowers is a vase. When it's dinner time, walk outside and pick some vegetables.

    Hug a child. Let them hug you.

  • You miss every shot you don't take.
    Things happen for a reason.
    If you're meant to be with someone, everything will happen so effortlessly you won't even realize.
    Don't speak unless you have something to say.
    You don't know everything.
    Fighting and arguing is a waste of time. Know what their position is and respect it, even if you don't agree.
    Cite your sources.

  • trust yourself and not people
    give them rope until they choke, and once trust is broken walk way and never look back

    have high standards for yourself and aim higher

    be humble

    truth is worse than lies but the quicker you feel the pain the less shit you have to deal with (where with lies you just cover it up until it all breaks down on you)

    try to get better a little bit each and everyday

    be grateful

    everything happens for a reason and could be happened otherwhise
