    When I was a teenager, my dad strongly recommended that I learn a trade. This I did and it has provided a measure of security knowing that I have a skill set to rely on if I should lose my job.

    The best piece of advice my parents have given me was to say "don't get stressed out - this too shall pass."  They're so right about that smile

    "Life is not fair."
    That advice has kept me from wearing "rose tented glasses" as well as free myself from constantly (comparing) myself to others  Once you focus on simply staying in your lane there is a dramatic reduction in ego centric behavior. You play the cards you're dealt. Life is a (personal) journey.

    They never gave me any advice. And that was the best advice because it forced me to discover the truth for myself without their opinions.

    Keep God first and trust in him always. I failed to do this when I was younger and had to go on and suffer the consequences for bad decisions made. I find that human wisdom is limited, situations and circumstances vary so much that what worked for one person does not mean it will work for another. However godly wisdom as found in the bible can help anyone at anytime. Proverbs 3:5, 6 states: "Trust in Jehovah with all your heart and, and do not rely on your own understanding. In all your ways take notice of him, And he will make your paths straight."

    Trust your gut.  If something doesn't feel right, don't ignore it.  Use the feeling to be smart and objective about a situation or idea.  It helped me to trust my instinct instead of constantly second guessing myself.  As a woman, that was crucial to me, as I certainly fell victim to the 'dumb yourself down to be more relate-able' trend of middle school.  Thankfully, this notion helped me avoid /completely/ falling to the social stigma of 'smart girls not being cool'.
