Not to be smug and so sure of self-sufficiency, because the majority of us are closer than we think to live in a homeless shelter or in a box on the street.

People make a lot of noise about "personal responsibility," as if everyone in "need" was just lazy.

It ain't that easy.

Every day, honest, upstanding people find themselves without a roof and with only the clothes on their back.

Get an education when you are young. I waited until my 30's before I decided to attend college. I think it is important for young people to recognize the value of an education. When people are young, they tend to be very creative in their own way. One should not procrastinate their education or career choice for very long. It becomes more difficult the older you get, and more costly. I realize teens have a lot of things on their mind

I have this friend. He's a cool guy, but he's blunt and power-hungry. He can be very rude and he's bipolar so you know he can be up in your face one minute and not in the other. I'm in my mid-teens and we teenagers just want to go out and explore and such. We hung out every week, and we slept over our houses. I got to the point where I didn't need any friends. I thought he was enough to be my only friend, but he wasn't.

Life has taught me that if you want something done, it's always best to do it yourself.

I went through a lot of disappointments relying on the wrong people and through that, I've learned that I needed to stand on my own two feet.

Always say I love you.  You never know when it will be someone's (or you're) last day.  Also, don't sweat the small stuff and it's all small stuff.  Ask anyone who has been through a serious medical crisis, lost a loved one, etc.

To be grateful for every day, you never know when it could be the end. I almost died before I was 18 from medical reasons.  Also Never to steal I got my motorcycle stolen recently and it meant a lot to me now i don't have anything

The number one lesson I have been literally brought to my knees, is to TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF FIRST!

Follow your heart and listen to your intuition, it's there for a reason.

Also, don't put off your education - and invest when you are young and it will pay off later.
