I never learned anything whe I was talking.
Listen a lot! People are full of useful informations, stories, lessons. Listen and make use of that. Be genuinely interested and enjoy people.
I used to walk into a room full of people and wonder if they liked me…
Now I look around and wonder if I like them.
It is important to make your mind up about who you want to hang around with.
The people closest to you have the greates influence on your character, you should choose them wisely. It is not your job to please everybody, nor is it your job to please random people.
First thing: Please yourself by being yourself. Become comfortable with who you are or form your character untill you are comfortable and content with who you are and what you stand for. Then you can decide wether you like people or not on your own standards.
This is how you should determine who to hang out with and whose words to listen to. Don’t let others dictate your behaviour but make conscious choices and listen only to the word of people you respect and trust for good reasons.
He who tries to please everybody will never succeed and loose his integrity as well as his happiness along the way.
