i am the most important person in my life. if it wasnt for me, i wouldnt be here.
if you arent living for yourself, who are you living for...and whats the point?
make yourself happy first. because if you arent happy, its hard to do anything that will help anyone else out, and hard to accomplish much of anything.
dont dwell on the past or bitch and moan about it. you cant change it. its always going to be there, and you have to learn to get around it. it happened for a reason and you need to find out what the reason was. bad things make you stronger, and once you overcome an obstacle, you are smarter and therefore know what to do and what to look for before it happens again in the future.
good things are worth fighting for. if something seems to be blocking your way in getting it, its probably really worth it, if it means that much to you. the most wonderful things are the ones on the top shelf, or shoved way in back. we have to work for the things that are most precious to us.
its better to have loved and lost than to never loved at all. i would rather have something fabulous for a short amount of time, and know it would only be for a short amount of time, than to pass it up entirely and never know what i missed out on.
if people dont like you for who you are now, and cant accept the real you, they never will, so dont try and impress them. if they do wind up liking you afterwards, it will be fake and for the wrong reasons. i would rather have 2 close friends who love me for me without trying to change who i am, than a million aquaintences who only like me for superficial reasons.
i trust only two people in this world. one of them is me, the other is not you.
if you are going to do something, do it with all your heart, and do it completely. its just not worth doing any other way.
never. settle. if you dont find what you are looking for, dont pick the second best thing. keep searching until the one right thing pops out right in front of you. if you pass it up and walk away, and its still on your mind, go back and snatch it up before someone else does.
do unto others as you would have them do unto you. unless they fuck it up first. if they hurt you, all bets are off.
what goes around comes around and karma is a bitch. only send out what you are willing to take back. if you are a good person, and know what you are doing is the right thing, then it will come back to you in due time. sometimes it takes awhile, but eventually you will get what you deserve, good or bad.i know this from personal experience. EVERYONE gets what they deserve eventually, even if you dont think so.
if you want something done, do it yourself. if you rely on other people, it may never get done at all, or get done the way you want it to.
never be unusually cruel for no good reason. children do not deserve to get beaten, and neither does your wife/girlfriend/etc (of any gender actually).
dont EVER beat anything down just because it is smaller than you, or to prove you are the stronger species. torture is torture, even to animals, and it is NOT just something fun to do.
one thing ive learned from watching football: never be afraid to fall. sometimes the best catches are made that way.
