Written For Those of Us in Our 20s

If you are past 20 but not yet 25, you must find something other than love that will enable you to stand strong on the earth with your feet. You have to find a way to make a living. It's not too late to think about it.

  If you are past 20 but not yet 25, you must find something other than love that will enable you to stand strong on the earth with your feet. You have to find a way to make a living. It's not too late to think about it.

  I never thought education was important, geniuses aren't even in the science class, but, not in the science class, you can't even run the show.

  You have to turn those floating thoughts like flutter into clear thoughts and simple words. The flashy and floating are not easy to last. You need to know, that giving words to read pleasure is not enough, content, ideas, realm, soul, spirit, and wisdom, are important. Don't read more words of those women writers who are in the same way as you. Don't be trivial and sickly. Don't write whatever comes to mind. Don't linger on small sentiments and small touches.

  I want you to believe in warmth, beauty, trust, dignity, strength, these old words.

  I don't want you to be decadent, empty, confused, trashing yourself, and hurting others. I don't want you to make a mess of yourself. Moderate your feelings and cherish them, understanding that they are not for anyone.

  Experiencing life is another thing, it doesn't mean degradation and indulgence. Don't ever identify with those who pretend to be cool and alternative. They are excuses made by people who have nothing better to do than to let themselves go. The real coolness is on the inside. You have to have a strong heart.

  You have to have the belief that you will not give in to the passage of time. It's not because you're in the ivory tower of school that you say things like I love the world, it's knowing that it's dark, dirty, and ugly out there that you have to say things like that.

  Love and live well. Youth is so short, don't sigh at old age. Occasionally you can stop and rest, but don't squat down and look. Remember not to look back when you have walked a path. Ask yourself from time to time, what are you doing?

  When you are sad and aggrieved, bawl your eyes out. After crying and washing your face, pat yourself on the face and squeeze out a smile for yourself. Don't rub it, or your eyes will be swollen the next morning.

  Give yourself an ambitious future and goals. Remember to look up at the sky often. Remember to look up at the sky when you also look at your feet.

  Any time anyone asks you how many times you have been in love, the answer is twice. Once he loved me, I didn't love him. Once I loved him and he didn't love me. Good love is always in the next time. Don't give the same person the chance to hurt you twice.

  Don't go out with prodigal sons, literary youngsters, don't be with heartless people, don't be with people who don't have a proper career to mix with.

  Don't take cheapness as true love. When a person tramples himself to please you, don't be moved by it. A man's cigarette burns on him, the next one may burn on you. Likewise, when this woman's blade cuts her wrist, the next one may cut yours.

  Never trust a man who is not prepared to introduce you to his circle of friends. When a woman will only call you "baby", insist that she call you by your name because you are a man. When a man or woman stops coming to you, don't go back to him or her. Don't trust people who use tactics in relationships. Don't mouth off when you break up. Learn your lesson, but don't regret it. Regret is useless.

  Don't do things that only people do in third-rate romance TV shows like tearing up photos, burning letters, and tearing up diaries. Believe in love. Believe that good men and women still exist, are still unmarried, and are still looking for you in a sea of people. Don't say "no man (or woman) is a good thing" so that people think that you have read a lot of people.

 Love the material, properly. Always know that the spirit is more important. More beautiful than those watches, brand names, or fashion, is the hardworking and energetic yourself. If every penny you spend after the age of 20 is still reaching out to your parents and relatives, then your full of brand names will only highlight your shamelessness. Don't think that wearing a brand name you have class, you know that if there is no real substance, the mule with a golden saddle will not become a steed. You are still young, not to mention starting your career and creating your future, but you have become an adult, at least let yourself no longer be a burden on your parents, so that parents see the hope of 20 years of hard work to raise.

  Doing nothing will only turn you into a loser, a loser despised by all other people because you are a parasite in every sense of the word. Don't think that getting a weird haircut, wearing unmanly clothes, sprayed with pungent perfume, others will pay attention to you, to understand that that invites the eyes of others are looking at a different monkey. Many educated people are not written on their face their disgust for the alternative, but this disgust will undoubtedly bring extremely negative consequences.

  Don't look down on working people. Don't be ashamed of labor. The land is not dirty and the smell of sweat is not unpleasant. Respect those who seem to be living in a situation not as good as yours, but still work honestly with their own hands to support their families, because that's how you respect yourself. Always be compassionate to those who live at the bottom, because it is among these people that our loved ones are. We are not pampered. We must be able to provide for ourselves, that is where your dignity lies.

  Don't underestimate a penny. Don't be afraid to earn it yourself. Be tough sometimes, and when you are bullied, make sure you get it back! But do not hold a grudge.

  The views of the villain, let them go well. Principled tolerance and compassion will make you noble.

  Girls with a careful mind are cute but don't use this kind of mind in the hook, that will be very tiring.

  Do not be too high-profile, high-profile easy to attract right and wrong. But also can not be too low-key, the tough when it comes to tough, but never aggressive.

  When you are hurt by a friend, don't doubt the friendship, but beware of people who betray you. Forgive, but do not forget. Be a few innocent and childlike, and keep some chivalrous feelings towards your friends. Be happy, be cheerful, be tough, be warm. It has nothing to do with character. But you have to be loyal, hardworking, and sincere in respect for others so that your life will not be dark.

  Treat yourself and others with generosity. It will be much easier when you won't be angry or sad because of little less-than-ideal little things.

  To forgive the world and yourself.
