Here is a really valuable lesson that no one will ever learn, but I’m going to put it out there anyway, as learned through my own hard experience: Always go with your gut instinct. Never, ever ignore it if you wish to be happy. Ignoring it will be the biggest mistake you will ever make, and it will take a lot of sacrifices to fix it. Your happiness is the most important thing in your life, so ensure that the choices you make are in keeping with that. You will always get a second chance, and a third, a forth, and yet more after that. But get it right the first time so that you do not make yourself suffer the consequences of your own misguided actions, time and again. Your happiness will safeguard the happiness of all those around you. You create your own reality, so don’t spoil it. Enjoy your life and allow yourself to be happy. That’s all I’ve got to say.
