What advice would you give to your 18-year-old self?
Life cannot be judged on the basis of whether you have failed in an exam or got the first rank.
Don’t let words hurt you.
Those who you regard as your best friends may not appear in your life again.
Do not form your opinion about a person straightaway or based on what you have heard about the person. Give yourself at least six months of regular interaction with the person.
Do not form your opinion about a person based on what the person says but on the basis of what the person does.
The best persons may not be the people who hang around you and keep you happy by talking good things about you.
Acquire as many skills as you can – driving, swimming, playing an instrument, cooking, electrical & civil work....
You may long to have what you have now. So, enjoy what you have.
