THINGS I KEEP REMINDING MYSELF (AND MY FRIENDS)

Kind of a part 2 from my very first list. Alternate title: advice I give my friends and myself (?).
  1. The only opinions about yourself that matter are your own.
  2. You CAN make anyone love you, but you don't NEED to make anyone love you.
  3. Stop being afraid about what could go wrong and start being positive about what could go right.
  4. Your friends love you for you.
  5. If they love you, you'll know it. If they don't, you'll constantly wonder if they do.
  6. Compliments don't include the word "actually".
  7. Other people are not the answer. Learn to love yourself instead of waiting for someone else to.
