As your career grows, the list of things that makes you happy should not become smaller, it should become bigger.
I know my flaws before other people point them out to me.
As supportive as my hometown is, in my high school, there are people who would probably walk up to me and punch me in the face. There's a select few that will never like me. They don't like what I stand for. They don't like somebody who stands for being sober, who stands for anything happy. They're going to be negative no matter what.
Don't ever call a guy first. The thing they want the most is whatever they can't have. It sounds really juvenile, but it works.
