1. Don’t let other people’s opinions determine who you’re friends with. If you like someone, they make you happy and you feel comfortable around them, keep them.

3. You can edit your life frequently without giving people an explanation. You are in complete control of what you do.

4. You have to be okay with not knowing everything and accepting things for what they are.

5. It’s not your job to solve everyone’s problems. But you can be there for them while they try to figure it out.

6. Learn to love your solitude. You always have yourself at the end of the day.

7. The boy who wants to keep you won’t waste his time entertaining other women.
