First of all, I want you to know life is beautiful.
Second, but there are a lot of stupid jerks and really, really bad people scattered everywhere. Some of them are in sheep’s clothing. I need you to be careful and be quick to tell the difference.
Third, trust nobody & everybody. Trust nobody of all your feelings, money and dignity. Trust everybody of your feelings, money and dignity. In other words, be wise. Expect bad things and expect good things. The world is full of them both.
Fourth, whatever happens in the past, stays in the past. If someone broke your heart there, let the experience stay there. Don’t carry it on in the present. Otherwise, it will affect your future.
Fifth, be kind but learn how to kick somebody’s ass. Otherwise, they will kick yours.
Sixth, pay attention. Life teaches a lot of things. Everything you need to learn is in it. You don’t need to experience all things to learn from them. You don’t need to try all things to understand them.
Seventh, know that this life is not yours. It is God’s gift. So make yourself worthy of it. Do everything for His pleasure, not yours.
