You don’t need friends, you need to be a friend. You don’t need people to love you, you need to love people. You don’t need others to do things for you, you need to do things for others. Other people don’t need to like you for you to feel fulfilled, you need to simply like others. Don’t be upset when others don’t contact you, rather contact them. Don’t wait for others to come to you, go to them. Don’t let anything be an obstacle, make it an opportunity to grow. Don’t want, instead give. Don’t wait for things to satisfy you, rather bring satisfaction to them. Don’t expect anything from others, rather be grateful for what you have. Don’t judge people if they don’t live up to your expectations, rather strive to live up to your own expectations for yourself. Don’t fish for compliments, rather give them unconditionally. You don’t need to say anything, you need to listen. You don’t need others to understand you, you need to understand others. You don’t need anybody to do anything for you, you need to do things for others. You don’t need to receive anything from others, you need to offer things to others. Don’t blame others for your experience of life, take responsibility for it. Don’t wish you were with somebody else, be delighted to be who you are with. Don’t judge a situation in terms of what it can do for you, rather look at what you can do in a situation. Don’t create problems, resolve them. Don’t judge, accept. Don’t focus on what you are doing, focus on why you are doing it. Don’t expect things to change quickly, just be happy to create causes which take you in the right direction. Don’t keep going down roads you know lead nowhere, just decide to do the right thing. Don’t base your sense of self-worth on what others think of you, rather base it on your potential to get better with effort. Don’t try to change others, change yourself. Don’t blame others for your problems, blame your delusions. Don’t wish things were different, realize they are perfect just the way they are. Don’t waste your time chasing rainbows, spend your times planting seeds. Don’t get angry when confronted with the truth, realize it is your pathway to freedom. Don’t waste the days you are given, make the most of them. Don’t expect yourself to already be perfect, rather joyfully but patiently work on perfecting yourself. Don’t lament that things are unfair, just treat others fairly. You don’t need to be anywhere else, you need to be where you are. You don’t need to be with anybody else, you need to love who you are with. Don’t take half-measures, deal with things definitively. Stop making excuses, know you can do it. Don’t try go it alone, pray for the strength to change.
