This post is meant to illustrate to those of you that may be disenchanted with my prior writings that I'm NOT trying to be a jerk or think that I'm better than anyone else. I'm simply trying to remind everyone of a few things they may have forgotten as they grew up. Those important life lessons, interpreted for life as an adult.

Be Careful When Accepting Candy From Strangers

To paraphrase myself, I mentioned in a previous post that people online are only as real as you choose them to be. They're strangers, and what they show you online is their candy. Most of us would like to believe that, being adults, the sick people out there with the poisoned lollipops aren't after us. They are. Yes, most people will be straight and honest, but since not everyone is it's prudent to inspect what they give you before you eat it. I really hate to say this, since even I remember when it wasn't so, but trust should be earned slowly over a period of time, not given quickly with little reason.

Be Your Own Person

Express yourself. Follow your dreams. Don't let what others think determine who you are (yes, even if you're a bastard). The people who understand you will appreciate you being straightforward. And yes, someone ALWAYS understands you. In your worst rage and depression, in your greatest joys and success, the last thing you should feel is apprehension toward being yourself.

Love Yourself

If you can't love yourself, how can you expect others to love you. If you can't make yourself happy, how can you expect to make others happy? You know better than anyone else what you need and how to get it, so being kind to and loving yourself should be (and is) the easiest and most important love in the world. Everything can be taken away from you in a heartbeat -- yourself is the only thing that if taken away you won't mind (you'll be dead, after all). All love stems from self love.

Look Both Ways Before Crossing The Street

Be mindful of what you put online. 10 years from now it'll still be there, and you don't want to be blindsided by a grandchild asking why there's naked pictures (or otherwise) of you online. Remember when you were glad that you didn't get that Metallica tattoo in high school? Forethought is the idea that a little bit now will pay off more later.

Don't Eat That

Seriously. I saw you drop it on the floor/pick it. You should really know better by now. Yes, I'm talking to you.
