Hey 26 year old, You are not supposed to work hard at this age - you are supposed to enjoy your youth. You will make money in your 30s. Enjoy your twenties. Kiss that random girl stuck in the friend zone, wink at your married boss, set the school on fire, eat chips.

Hey 26 year old, Learn to not care what people think about you, it’s their business not yours. Also rate yourself 1-7 on being addicted to their appraisal and not doing things because of that. Treat 7 as the highest & be conscious of your number so you can get to 1.
