I’ve been very sad at points. I’ve been lonely. I’ve felt like I was no good at anything.

I felt like I didn’t know what the rules were. For happiness. For living. How can I find out?

And I felt that I was constantly trying to please others, just to survive, and nobody was trying to please me.

These are the things that I’ve done that have directly helped me whenever I am feeling down. And in some cases, they have led to incredible success.
