A Few Things I've Learned

Now, I realize that I've only been on this earth for 21 or so years, but through the course of my lifetime I've picked up on a thing or two. Now, I'd like to share them with you. Hopefully, you already knew most of this, but just in case I picked up on something you might have missed I wrote some of it down for you. Most of these, I've learned through experience, while some I've decided to take on faith. I hope you find something that will help you right now.

Life is as good or as bad as you make it out to be.
When you are uncomfortable in a group situation, odds are you're not alone. 
Life is hard, that's the way it was meant to be. Deal with it. 
Life's biggest battles reap the biggest rewards. 
There are too many good friends out there to waste your time with bad ones. 
It's not a matter of how you screwed up, but how you plan to fix it. 
You can't always do it alone.
They're your family for better or for worse. And you know you'll always love them. 
You're never as alone as you feel.
If you want a hung, give a hug. 
When you feel weak, it's usually because your being made strong. 
Sometimes you need to let go of your pride and just cry. 
Be a good friend even when you don't want to be. 
Always be true to who you are. Eventually you'll find someone you don't have to try to impress. 
It's better to say "I don't know" than it is to pretend that you do. 
Don't complain about things you can't change. It's just a waste of energy. 
It's OK to feel sad sometimes, just don't make a habit of it. 
Find joy in the little things. 
Look for the good in people, but don't let it blind you from reality. 
Give people more than a few reasons to love you. 
It's good to have focus, but remember to look up at the big picture every now and again. 
With my faith and the gift of the Lord's power, I can do hard things. 
Don't expect anyone to love you if you don't love you too. 
At any given moment, you're at least twice as strong as you think you are. 
Pray for help and go to work. 
Do what you have to do when you have to do it. Then someday, you can do what you want to do when you want to do it. 
You can do what you want, or you can do what's right. But hopefully, what you want is what's right. 
Be thankful in thought and in action. 
Work hard to be someone worth being.
