You have to take responsibility for your emotions. Other people don’t make you feel anything – you control your reaction and outcome. You are in control of everything.

BUSTING BODY MYTHS

  • There is NO SUCH THING as a one 'perfect' body shape.
  • Don't base your self-esteem on clothing sizes-they differ and it's meaningless.
  • Don't surround yourself with people that judge others for their size or looks - and don't be that person, either.
  • Embrace your natural body size. Love it.
  • All shapes and sizes are beautiful.
  • Appreciate your body for what it does for you. It looks after you, so look after it.

Life really is too short to live through other people’s optics. It’s all in your own imagination, anyway. So what’s the point in worrying? And WHO CARES? Your life is yours.

FRIENDSHIP TRUTHS

  1. Don’t let others’ opinions of you be your opinion of yourself.
  2. A real friend just wants the best for you.
  3. You don't know what other people are going through, so don't judge so quickly.
  4. You'll lose friends, you'll fall out with people and that's ok.
  5. The greatest gift you can give somebody is your attention.
  6. To be inherently kind is to be a good friend.

TOXIC FRIENDS

  • Dismissive towards your feelings
  • Lie to you
  • Take the piss out of you in front of others to get attention
  • Change their personality around different people
  • Oblivious to how they make you feel
  • Always on their phone when they're with you.
  • Never ask how you're doing.

You don’t need to have another half. You are a whole person all by yourself. A good partner will just add on to that.

It can sometimes feel impossible to get out of a toxic relationship, especially if you love that person (and even if you don’t).

The one question to ask yourself about any relationship:

What would you say to a friend if they were going through the same thing?

Sometimes you don’t realise how f**ked up someone is treating you until you’re explaining it to someone else. So, talk to each other. Don’t judge too much. Listen. Be open.

WorkLife Lessons

  1. Find something that excites you, something that you are genuinely interested in doing.
  2. Say yes to the random things that might come, take a chance on something new. You never know where things might lead.
  3. If you really want something, you’ve got to put in the hours and the effort. Don’t be scared to fail, you’ll be proud you tried.
  4. It’s your own unique personality that is your biggest asset. Being your authentic self is the best thing you can be.
  5. Career success means nothing unless you’re happy with yourself, too. Other people’s successes are not your failures – we are all on our own path.

But it’s all about shifting your perception of what success is and not measuring it by others’ achievements.

There are loads of different ways to mark success.

So whatever you want to do with your life, do it because YOU want to do it. Don’t get caught up in living someone else’s dream, or competing against someone else’s achievements.

Life is messy. Every part of our life is a little piece of a jigsaw puzzle, and we only work well when the puzzle fits together.
