    Dont use one source for all your information, read around and then form an opinion or read academic journals, its easy to find an echo chamber with views you agree on with but you need to stay open minded.

    Don't give a single **** about what anyone thinks, this is your life and your happiness is the most important thing. Prioritise yourself, always. You're the only person who will always be there! Also stop saying no to opportunities, even if you feel kinda tired, go do that thing, in a few years you'll wonder why you didn't. Make the most of your friends being near, soon you'll be far apart and busy and wish you made the most of that time together.

    Oh my this is amazing!
    Yeah I need to stop thinking about others that much , and think about myself.

    I'd spend time with my friends, but tbh I haven't made proper friends/ the type that hangs out.
