What’s the one piece of advice you wish someone had given you a year (or five, or ten…) ago?
I can’t pick one, so I’ll list a few that have been meaningful in my recent life :
- Stop thinking so Goddamn much. Wishful thinking in all probability, but the less I get in my own head, the better.
Embrace rejection. Part of being a human being is learning to get over rejection and get out there again. The faster, the better.
Learn to communicate. One of the biggest things I stress in any relationship. Generally, people are fucking awful at communicating.
Don’t judge others by their life experiences. Everyone has baggage and everyone is fucked up. Everyone’s life experiences are formative and make them who they are.
