I thank God I’ve survived so far and made most decisions using common sense. Common sense is priceless.
I just want to help others that may need need assistance navigating this journey called life. These rules are not listed in any order of importance because they are all important. Here’s some rules to live by:
Don’t burn bridges – 9 times out of 10 you’re going to need that person again.
Listen to your elders – you’ll have less headaches, heartaches and stress.
Practice good work ethics.
Don’t quit a job before you have the next job.
You are responsible for your own happiness. Don’t buy into this romance movie happiness that includes statements like “you complete me.”
Don’t have sex with folks that just look good. Are they responsible? If a child results, will you have to put out an APB for them to help with the child? Would you want this woman to be the mother of your child? Do you want this person in your life for the rest of your life?
Don’t have sex in every relationship. Is there a rule you have to have sex? Everybody ain’t worthy – ijs.
Surround yourself with folks that encourage and support you.
Learn how to be a real friend. Once you learn the real meaning, you may find out the folks you’ve been saying are on your squad are not on your squad.
Have a personal relationship with God. Give Him some of your time. He’s worthy.
