To live is like to love, all reason is against it, and all healthy instinct for it. So go for it!

The following advice is derived from reading several books authored by psychologists, psychiatrists, communication experts, and even the Dali Lama. The information is backed by scientific studies, thousands of years of teachings, personal experience, and my personal experiences. 

 

Know & be confident about yourself!

Be Caring and Giving to others

Know You have Total Control how you react to anything, what your perspective is, how much something is going to affect you... if you realize you have that control and USE IT! 

This is TRUE for everyone. It isn't a theory or a supposition, it is a scientifically proven fact. You are in Control of what you think and how much something affects you. You control how you look at things, your perspective, and how you react to everything in life. When someone "angers" you, you are really just allowing that to happen. 

Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice. -- William Jennings Bryan

Care about others, have compassion, loving kindness. And be open-minded! When you do you will really listen to others, and they in turn will be open to you. This with commitment makes for a good start in a relationship.

Make your actions match your words, and both match your head and heart. - Gregg
