At the age of 30, politely end any connections that leave you mired in the past, a cycle, or a rut. Get rid of those who are no longer useful to you.
Eleanor Roosevelt once said, "Great minds debate ideas; ordinary minds have events; little minds have people."
Self-care is not selfish; it is essential. You will get through life if you make investments in your mind, body, and soul. It's an investment in oneself.
"Rest is essential; it is not a time waster. Make time for yourself, sleep, and nothing. You'll get exhausted without it."
"Shame is poisonous and never benefits you, so let it go. Learn from your errors, stumbles, and suffering, but don't let them define or follow you around forever."
Don't read books you don't enjoy only to appear well-read or to impress others. Read what you find enjoyable to broaden your consciousness.
When upset, keeping quiet to "keep the peace" merely feeds bitterness and ruins relationships. After all, the situation is not serene.
"Examine the sources, purposes, and alignment of your beliefs with your genuine beliefs when you challenge them. Don't take things at face value without checking them out."
"Make a list of your core values and assess your compliance with them. If not, redirect."
Be trustworthy. Plan ahead and follow through. Do what you claim you'll do. Maintain your word and be there for others. Develop this characteristic.
Making errors fosters strength, love, and development. Refusal to accept responsibility halts learning. Accept change and develop into the person you were born to be.
Don't attempt to win everyone over. Concentrate on those who already do. You're not for everyone, and that's okay.
