Moderation in everything. Don’t be an asshole and don’t be a pushover. Be assertive while listening. Drink some alcohol, but not too much and not all the time. It’s okay to be selfish, while being too selfless isn’t. Find a balance.
“Youth is wasted on the young.” — George Bernard Shaw
Stop worrying about what people think of you. They’re probably not. They’re probably thinking about themselves. Or maybe what you think of them. Silly.
