Giving up is the worst, because it allows you to make excuses.

Life only seems like it sucks because you have no experience and perspective to determine it’s really kind of OK. And all that stuff you feel like you’re missing out on, there’s plenty of time to pack all that in to life, so just concentrate on being happy with who you are.
