    1 Never substitute love for food or meaningless sex
    2 Be true to thyself. For truth and courage is the sword and shield to face this world.
    3 Drink deeply, for it may be your last.
    4 Think of life is an unpainted canvas, add a dash of color when nothing makes any sense.
    5 When all else fails, retreat to your senses, for all we have is now.

    1. Position yourself in a number of (safe, respectful) environments that make you feel uncomfortable and scared, because this is how you learn to build bridges to people who have different paths and worlds than you. Do it frequently and as much as you can when you're younger. Move to another country for a while; find a summer job that stretches your weak spots, etc. Risk aversion comes quickly with age, and you want to be the adult who has as many paths toward other humans and worlds as possible.

    2. Get very clear on your values and priorities and surround yourself with people who support your pursuit of living a life that reflects those goals. Many people live as characters performing a role and can't figure out why they feel empty. Be a person, not a character.

    3. Don't underestimate how important a sense of community is, even if you're an IxTx. Find good friends who you can trust to help you slay your dragons and give you a sense of belonging. There should be some blood on the floor followed by a sense of newfound peacefulness; it's a sign of having done battle with your past so you can focus on your future and use your gifts to serve the world. Choose carefully about who you're vulnerable with, but when you've found someone worthy, don't be a coward. Yes, it's messy, but it's also an opportunity to liberate yourself. The world needs free people.

    4. Learn how to be alone with yourself, but also learn how to be present with others. Those skills need constant maintenance. Never let them degenerate.

    5. Though people's abilities and gifts differ, people's inherent value does not. Find ways to value yourself and others without ranking the inherent worth of the human, and watch your ranking language carefully. Actions and behaviours and skills and abilities are rankable and we can organize roles and responsibility and reward accordingly, but we cannot rank the people as if they are worth less or more. That's what's behind addiction, abuse, and shame. Those behaviors that rank humans are motivated by our fearful selves. Always choose to be motivated by love. Harder said than done, but a worthy pursuit.

    1. Know yourself. Your strengths, weaknesses, likes and dislikes etc... Do this before anything else. It will help you figure out what you should do for a living, what kind of person is right for you, whats likely to make you happy etc...

    2. Know others. We can't all be extroverts, but building lasting, meaningful relationships with as many folks as possible will never be a hindrance, and can only help you moving forward.

    3. Don't get comfortable. Don't ever think you've learned enough, or figured life out. Because you haven't and you never can. The best you can do is commit yourself to changing with the world and staying hungry for progress. This applies to business, social life, and everything else. Always want to get better at whatever you do.

    4. Face the fire. Too many run from their problems and in so doing lock themselves in a cage of fear. Face them and win or lose you learn something. Regardless of the outcome you are way ahead of where you were before facing them.

    5. Chill out. Find peace, whatever that may mean to you (religion, travel, meditation, etc...). Life is way too short to forget to smell the roses.

    1- Find lifelong friends.
    2- Find a life partner.
    3- Surround yourself with people that value who you really are.
    4- Don't give a fuck about those besides in 1, 2, 3.
    5- Don't let others dictate what you should do with your life (besides those in 1, 2 and 3 on occasion).

    Just remembered something in the context of advice giving: a neighbor was walking down the street with his son few days ago, the kid was I don't know about 8/9 years old and I heard his father advise him: "Whatever you do I don't want you to think you can lie and try to lie, that's not the way to do things or get anything in life, don't think you can get away with it, some people can very easily see through you" well something like that, so I thought that was a really sweet moment and than he continued: "yeah don't lie and don't troll!" lol I've barely contained myself from laughing at that part, but still that's some solid advise right there

    Why would you want to burn bridges with people?
