My Rules For Life

I’m not going to pretend I actually follow all my rules all of the time but these are things I believe and keep hoping to learn to follow.

1. It’s never a one way street, when one person is to blame usually the other person is to blame also.

2. You can’t make people love you the way you want them to, they can only love the best they know how.

3. Treat others the way you would want to be treated, if someone is hurt imagine yourself in their place and see how you like it.

4. Love what you love, fiercly.

5. It’s ok to fail but the only way to do better next time is to admit completely to your failures.

6. Money doesn’t fix everything, it can’t fix relationships or yourself.

7. Eventually things always get better, unless you die of course.

8. Everyone needs space and time to themselves, it’s necessary for inner peace.

9. Do not hold onto hate and anger, it will hurt you far more than it will hurt anyone else.

10. Never stop learning who you are, there is always more to learn.

      Think I can turn this into a self-help book? Yeah, probably not, it would probably be a pretty short book.

    “Eventually things always get better, unless you die of course”
    That sounds just like something I’d say 🙂
    Great rules – sounds like they’ve been written by someone who’s learned them all personally…and maybe the hard way.
    Thanks for sharing.

    This list has nothing about having kinky sex with Asian hotties. Obviously a work in progress.
