What I’ve learned prior to 60
Death is not distant, it’s inevitable, and ever-closer.
No one knows anything. Confidence is a front. Everybody is insecure.
No one cares about your SAT scores unless they aced the test.
We’re all lonely looking to be connected.
You’ll want the decade back when you were lost and drifting.
You’re never going to recover from some physical ills, aches and pains are part of the process of dying, and that’s what you’re doing, every day.
Women inject their lips to look good to other women, the same way they buy and wear trendy outfits and shoes. Men just want someone who will listen to them, soothe them and have sex with them.
Being good-looking is overrated. Sure, it opens some doors, but it stunts you in other ways. Character is built by challenges, if you avoid them, you’re at a loss.
Having friends is better than having money.
If you were never on the path to riches, you will never be rich.
Doors are closing every day. If there’s something you want to do, start now.
Acceptance is no easier than it was when you were five, but it’s necessary in order to soldier on.
You really want to be involved with someone your own age, because no matter how attractive a younger person might be, they do not get the references.
People let you down.
Some people were dead at thirty. It’s a full time job trying to stay alive.
