I used to try to behave so people would like me. Some people liked me, and some didn't.

Now I behave the way *I* think I should behave. Some people like me, and some don't. And I like myself a whole lot better.

You can't change anyone else. You can only change yourself.

Don't sweat the small stuff.

Don't fight something that is small for the "principle of it".

When life gives you a lemon, make lemonade.
