Show respect even to people who dont deserve it, not as a reflection of their character, but as a reflection of yours -from Lifehacker, quoting Dave Willis. I really need to remember this because I think I show weakness when I do this, but I shouldn't.
20 things to live by. Love this! You don't have to listen to how other people want you to live your life. Live it your way. Do your things. Make your own mistakes. Live life for YOU while you still can.
A successful woman is one who can build a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at her.<<<< this makes me think of the lyrics to New Romantics by Taylor Swift, "cause baby i could build a castle out of all the bricks they threw at me"
