wise advice,

Problems do not become problems until we make them one. It’s all about perspective.
As you work towards self improvement, be sure to do it with positive intention. Don’t change yourself as a form of punishment, but solely to become a stronger, kinder, and wiser person as a whole.

@guys who want to find a girl like their mom: your mom cooks and cleans after you because she’s your mom. she has to love you unconditionally, that’s like her job. you won’t ever find a woman who loves you more than she loves herself because the rest of us didn’t carry you for 9 months, weren’t there to see you walk for the first time or potty train you. we don’t have to do your dirty laundry, smile at you when you fuck up and put up with your selfish undeserving ways. we’ll never be your mom. get over yourselves, the sun doesn’t come out of your asses and you only have one mom. don’t go out looking for a wife to replace her

Today is a new day. Have fun, work hard, and reflect on your experiences. Live it as if it may be your very last on earth.
My daddy always told me to just do the best you knew how and tell the truth. He said there was nothin to set a man’s mind at ease like wakin up in the morning and not havin to decide who you were. And if you done somethin wrong just stand up and say you done it and say you’re sorry and get on with it. Don’t haul stuff around with you.
