  • Jun 27 2012: I love this(: I'm 23, & these are the greatest lessons I've learned in my life so far.

    1) Only if you can love, respect, & forgive yourself can you then do the same for others. I've learned that walking around in self-pity or unforgiveness towards myself caused me to be blind to the needs of those around me. Understand who you are, & then get your eyes off yourself & onto others.
    2) Love is stronger than death & greater than the darkest of evil. "Love conquers all."
    3) Actively seek out wisdom.
    4)Be careful with your words -- they bring either life or death. It's your choice. Use them as the precious & powerful things they are to us.
    5)Live simply. Not only physically, as with a cluttered house, but mentally & emotionally as well. Be careful not to over analyze situations or throw your heart around. It only brings anxiety. Buy only what you need, do all you you can about a situation & then let yourself move on, love fiercely the one man or woman that is your mate in life.


    Thank you for this great question!
