What Advice Can You Offer Others From Your Life Experiences?

Hello All.

I thought that I had already created this topic but no hits on the search so I guess it's alright. What advice can you offer others from your experiences in your life up to this point? Mine is this: You can turn your back on a person but not a chemical. Be careful how you conduct yourself around someone who is under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Some people are awesome to be around when they're straight, but when under the influence can be a completely different person altogether. Watch what you say and how you say it.

This is a good thread, 100% right on the people acting completely different. Had a friend in the forces who was a 10/10 bloke. Really nice guy, family man would do anything. Always buying his family gifts when away even if only for a week and you could never say anything bad about him. He went home on leave and did some drugs with a few of his old high school friends and he got addicted. I knew about it but i didn't say anything untill i found out he was hit his wife because she hid his stash.

Drugs can really change a person, people don't realise the mental and psychical harm it causes even social drugs like weed can lead onto heavier stuff when it doesn't give you the high it used too.

Anyway, advice for life?
When you start work, open a separate bank account and put a little bit of your wages into that every month, even if it's something silly like 10%. It add's up and comes in handy for a rainy day believe me.

Try not to worry about what anyone else thinks, you're you. You do you, you know what makes you happy and you shouldn't need to try to fit in somebody elses idea of normal. (Although there is a limit, jesus people)

Learn a language, it opens so many doors for you in the job market and makes your life seem a little better. Trust me on this, it's a handy skill and ladies love it.

Beards are awesome.

try everything at least once, esp. in beers =)

be open minded but dont trust right away. trust only works with time.

not everyone is your friend or they pretend to be ( to long to continue on that )

at what Gareth said, open a separate account ... heck, i wouldnt even touch that. just let it grow .... once it has over 10k, that can be used if there are any hiccups along the way, like, out of work, engine or tranny going out in the car/ truck, medical, etc ..... so called emergency money

did i mention beer ....??

Smoking isn't going to kill you straight away, but it has more of an effect than you think. Oh you looked it up on Google and found out it's actually good for you, and weed is better than medicine? Get a reality check and stop kidding yourself. It's all fun and games, smoking, injecting yourself, popping pills. We're young, let's get shit faced. Enjoy your middle age when you're decrepit and jobless.
Advice: Drugs aren't worth it.

Also, that girl/guy you love. You'll find better. They'll find better. Forever means "until I'm no longer infatuated", and 'I promise' means they're too afraid to be tell you the cold hard reality that they will eventually leave you but right now, they have feelings that are slowly dripping away.

Blunt, but that's life.

1. It's not always your fault
  • People will take advantage of you and your kindness, your gullibility. Being at the wrong place at the wrong time is entirely possible. Don't let anyone try to convince you that something was "your fault" when you had no control over the situation. Always remember that.
2. People will come and go in your life
  • Things don't last forever. Relationships and friendships only last as long as the two of you are willing to make them last. People will lose interest and move on. For those who don't, cherish them and let them know every once and a while you appreciate them.
3. It's okay to fail
  • Human beings aren't perfect. You failed that math test? So what? Do something about it! Don't wallow in your shame and despair. Realize your mistakes and remind yourself that everyone, even great people like Albert Einstein and Thomas Edison failed. Multiple times, in fact. Use your failure as an inspiration to do better the next time.

The Friend Zone is only as real as you make it. If someone does not return your feelings just leave them alone. Because in reality they don't actually care if you are friends but they offer that because no one wants to look like a bitch/douchebag. And don't resent them for their feelings if they dont feel you like that they just don't. Settling for being just friends will make you feel like crap inside like you are less than human especially when they get a bf/gf. Just gracefully accept the rejection and leave the person alone and find someone else.

EDIT: Not that there is anything wrong with platonic opposite sex friendships, thos advice applies when you fall for someone right off the bat and they say no thanks. Falling for a friend you have already known for quite sometime is a different beast.

And like Hakuryuu said people come and go. You may find that people who were once your best friends seem distant now and sometimes as we mature we grow apart from some friends and find new ones. I was born in MI and moved to Arizona in 2008. That didnt work out so my family moved back home to Michigan in late 2011. I spent so much of 2008 brooding about the drastic change I blew off alot of the people who were trying to actually get to know me (many of whom were very pretty girls!). I did end up making a couple really close friends out there but I yearned to move back and be with my old friends. In 2011 I got my wish and was psyched at first but when I got back I noticed many of my old friends grew up, some changed fpr the worst, and I really have nothing in common with them anymore. Meanwhile my Arizona friends still keep telling me how much they miss me to this day so really the lesson is also that change can be a great thing.

So a girl can't just want to be friends with a guy? I have to say, a few of the guys I've dated I had previously turned down and just wanted to be friends. If you can't be friends with me, how can we be in a relationship? Friendship comes first, then maybe something more will develop, maybe not. You can't have a real relationship without friendship though.

What I meant was when you express feelings to a crush and they turn you down. There is nothing wrong at all with platonic friendships with the opposite sex. I have many purely platonic female friends including my best friend. I was talking about crushes, when you fall for someone right off the bat and they turn you down. Falling for someone you are already friends with for quite some time is a different beast. I just meant when people have crushes and they say no but maybe we can still be friends. That's when I say "no thanks I have enough friends." The Friend Zone is basically when you still like you still like them even when they aren't interested. But having a friend who happens to be the opposite gender and neither partt has romantic interest is different and nothing wrong with that at all.

In some ways I agree, but I think its just different depending on the situation and how you deal with it. I had a problem like that with my now best friend, and sure it was hard at first but now I don't regret sticking around.
