    Let go of expectations. Life definitely doesn't always turn out how you thought it would but in a way, that's part of the fun. Just try to make the most of every moment and find the good in what you can :yep:

    I'd visit my 6 year old self and tell him that other kids, animals and insects are just trying to get on with their lives, and to leave them alone. I'd tell him that I know life is stressful, but you can't take your stress out on others. You'll end up hurting them, and eventually yourself.
