Try not to undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others. We are all different and that is what makes each of us special.
Try not set your goals by what other people think is important. You know what is best for you, so listen to yourself.
Instead of living in the past and having regrets, try to live in each moment and you will really live out every single day of your life.
Take chances; do not be afraid to take risks, this is how we learn how to be brave.

You can do what you want as you have the choice.
