Things that everyone deserves to know.
Main concept is everyone is connected and we need each other to improve our lives. No one is the super hero who can be awesome all by himself, you try to be awesome by yourself and you are screwed. You did’nt give birth to yourself so you will never have all the credit.
Rule: Knowledge is power. Smart is just a base of knowledge that you can use to build more knowledge on top of. Knowledge is so important. Acquiring knowledge on how to live, on what does what. Learn how to read. Knowledge is what keeps you from dying everyday. Knowledge is the safe way to learn that a car can kill you. Experience is the hard way.
And once you have concepts in your head its good to play around with them and figure new things out. Think Critically. Think imaginatively. Do your very best to figure out what is right and what is wrong, and how to live. Read.
Rule: Love yourself, don’t think of this as loving your faults and and strengths, don’t see yourself as having faults and having to love yourself in spite of those. just see yourself as having strengths and weaknesses that you can work on. Nothing you have to force yourself to love.
Almost everyone needs confirmation from other people on if they are lovable or not. However if you keep in mind that everything is connected, loving youself is the best thing you can do for anyone else. When you love yourself you become able to live to your full potential because you are able to focus on achiving your goals because you want them not because someone else tells you you should want them to be lovable.
When you love yourself completely, you will be happy enough to extend that love to others.
When you hate yourself its hard to love anyone else and if you can’t love anyone else, it’s harder for people to love you.
If everyone loved themselves and cast out shame as the virus it is, we would be much better off.
