  • Finish Grad school at the earliest age possible.
  • Never put hand dishwashing soap in to a dishwasher. Bad things happen.
  • My mistake was not to buy ten acres of woodsy property on the outskirts of town and stick up a double wide mobile home for my home. In my early years when I was single I could have afforded it. Then I would have had a home for the rest of my life.
  • Don't choose the wrong partner.
  • never settle for less then you desire, even if you feel your not deserving.
  • Don't get married to a man 12 years older then you are when you're only 17, just to get the heck away from your rotten family situation. Chances are... He is a pervert! Even if he is a so called "Christian!" and you'll only end up having to crawl back to that same old rotten family situation eventually anyway.
  • When your putting Gas in your car don't stand right behind the nozzle while it's filling the tank, it might shut off and squirt Gas ALL Over YOU and turn you into a Human Candle if Lighted...
  • Do not concentrate too much on your school work. You don't have to get 4.0's throughout high school. Socialize and hang out with a variety of people. Now, I don't mean blow off school work, but a 3.0 or a 3.5 will get you into some pretty good schools. If you cultivate your social skills, while in high school, they will be the extra 1.0 or .5 to add on the end of your GPA. Please don't make the mistake of not doing this.
  • i am going to tell you something nobody told me... when you are in labor and you are pushing, sometimes you poop. if you dont know that and have your family, husband, etc., in the room it can be pretty embarrasing. oh and dont eat yellow snow.
  • Try to get independent as soon as possible!
  • Never rely on anybody for anything, if you cant get it or do it yourself - forget it.
  • Don't waste a day. Days become weeks. Weeks become months. Months become years and years become decades. If you have a dream and some goals, pursue them now. Do something every single day toward building your dream and investing in things that will outlive you.
  • Do not miss out on many of life's experiences by settling down too early.
  • Never give anyone power of attorney!! :)
  • Pursue your dreams BEFORE you pursue your love life.
  • Always be prepared to be alone, because there will be times when you are.
  • When you love someone, always let yourself Love don't hold back because when it is gone...you will only be left with regrets...
  • Do not smoke. Do not gain a hundred pounds while pregnant because you had to quit smoking.
  • Don't let your childhood scar you to the point that it almost paralyzes you in becoming a healthy productive adult.
  • If you HAVE a boyfriend/girlfriend you love, and have for a year or two, if you start "having feelings" for a friend, DO NOT act on them... by cheating OR by breaking up, temporarily, to see if things will work out with them. It will only end badly... probably for YOU, when you end up with NEITHER. Same thing with those who are married at that "seven-year-itch". If there are no problems in your marriage, other than "boredom", just find a way to make it work better. The grass may LOOK greener on the other side of the fence (or a friend's yard), but sometimes it's just paint or AstroTurf. It's NEVER any greener than yours.
  • Don't ever start smoking.
  • Think long and hard before you decide which guy you are going to allow to become the father of your children. If your marriage doesn't work out, he still influences them heavily through sharing his genes, his personality, his values, etc., and you yourself have to still cope with him for the next 20 years through graduations, weddings, etc.. plus child support.
  • Don't smell the glove.
  • Brush your teeth after you eat anything, you only get that one set.
  • Probably the best question EVER asked on AB. Hopefully, you'll get some answers that will assist you in your growth process. While it is not a specific mistake, I would suggest that you be hesitant in terms of who you trust. There are many wolves (both male and female) in sheep's clothing.
  • Don't start smoking. No matter what reason you think you will be okay, just don't. At all, ever. For any reason ever.
  • don't have a relationship with my ex-wife...
  • Stay away from drugs....Trust me.
  • ONce you make a decision to do something, whether it be go to college, move and start a new life, start a family, whatever, do it and don't turn back. make the decision and never look back and second guess yourself. I have started out doing so many things and then I have gotten scared or had problems financially and I have turned back. Now 20 years later, I wish to Hell I could redo everything because I would NOT look back this time.
  • Be more forgiving & not judgmental. ONLY get revenge when all else fails but remember it can hurt you more than the person you're angry with
  • Never break a friendship as much as possible.
  • Russian Roulette is not fun!
  • Never give up on the good in life.
  • dont leave school too early !!
  • KNOW the one u wed , WELL...the worst mistake is thinking u can change them or youself for that matter..
  • Never, ever forget to tell the people you love that you LOVE them! You never know when it's your last chance.
  • i wish i had taken certain jobs cause now i cant find one
  • Friends come, are around awhile, then drift away. When young and stupid, they seem to be the most important part of your life, but they ain't. Like the diapers you thought so important as a baby, or the tricycle that was so important when you was a bit older, your teenage friends (and crushes) are transitory. No matter how hard you try to hold on to them, nor how much you sacrifice, in the end you will fail. Understand that like a great dream while asleep, sooner or later you will awake, and the dream will fade away. Enjoy your friendships and crushes in the now, but never forget these things are temporary, so always be mindful of the price you are willing to pay to hold on a day or week or month longer. When the time comes to let go, it's time to let go!
  • Save as much money as possible for your retirement years
  • Don't follow the procastinators club. IOW Don't put off anything you need to do until later. Especially don't believe in their motto "Just you wait" Personal example. Putting off doing my writing for my blog.
