My biggest problem was figuring out who really loved me and who was just being a jerk, trying for favors. I figured it out but it took a while. True love is hard to find and it is so worth it. I have been married now to a wonderful man for 26 years and it is not easy but worth every bit of work it takes. No one should ever say that a marriage is 50-50. It is more like 75-75. I know, they don't add up but that is more what it truly is.
The best piece of advice that I could give any young person, is to keep your body to yourself until you have it figured out. No one wants to do something that they will regret later or be ashamed of. Don't make a fool of yourself and leave yourself a lot to be proud of.
