Best advice from your parents... Believe in yourself
What should they have taught you in school but didn't? They didn't teach me how to measure success. I mean real success, the one that has nothing to do with how much you have... I had to learn that on my own.
If there is one thing life has taught me it is... Happiness is a fragile bubble. You are responsible for blowing it as large as you can. And if it pops, look in your hands; most likely you are holding a needle
