Be yourself! A cliche statement there, right? Well, this overly used phrase means something that is overlooked repeatedly in people’s lives. People often try to fit in into a certain group of people that is completely otherwise of their interests and passion. This brings nothing but stress and misery. If you find yourself being one of those people then you should stop hanging out with this kind of people. Find people who have the same interests, passions or goals that you do and make them your company.

― Harvey Fierstein

Failure is a bruise, not a tattoo. Simple as that. Happy people refuse to get depressed over the little bumps and failures that occur in their lives. They know that certain mishaps are meant to happen. They acknowledge the fact that failure and the experience after it are two great teachers in life. Instead of whining about it, they work ahead and hope for better things to come. If you act like a drama queen whenever you screw up, you better fix that if you plan to be happy any soon.

― Maya Angelou
