Never lie to the person you love. It's not worth it and they don't deserve it.
Don't compare your life to other people's 'perfectly curated' social media pages. Their real life can't compare to it either.
As long as you're still seeking someone's validation through your 'revenge' glo-up, that person still has power over you.
Don't focus on trying to be 'the best'. Focus on being irreplaceable.
Mother taught me: when the rat follows the lizard out into the rain, it's only the rat that gets soaked be careful who you blindly follow.
Don't be afraid to raise your standards. You'd actually be surprised to know that there's someone out there more than willing to meet them.
