    What Have I Learnt

    Don't be the nice guy who's serious, you'll get laughed at and taken as a joke. Be the carefree one, it hurts less and is way easier to move on. Dwelling on the past may screw your future, yet not paying enough attention to the past will make your future repeat the same...

    I really have learned from my mistakes

    and I feel today I learned a lot. I won't go into great detail because I doubt anyone on here cares. I'm not saying that in a pout and whine. I seriously have not encountered many truly, kind people here. I have encountered many who like saying they are kind, caring, etc...
