1. Unless someone is offering kind, constructive criticism that genuinely seeks to help you improve, random opinions about you/your person/your style/your dreams DO NOT MATTER. Seriously, let's all participate in a giant group EFF YOU to those who feel the need to put you down or otherwise try to destroy your happiness. Sheesh, though, if I still don't feel like a kid in high school sometimes. Blerg.
2. Sometimes silence is an appropriate (and the best!) response. I often have a hard time keeping my mouth shut, but sometimes it really is better not to say anything at all. Just STFU. I've found that you can often seem more wise and put together if you can just let it go (whatever "it" is). (I can rarely ever let it go, and then there I am, looking like an idiot and needing to talk even more just to redeem myself!)
3. Don't go to the grocery store hungry. Um, yeah. Cookies are yummy, especially when you're starving.
What about you? Do you ever feel like there's something you just can't "get"?
