Say What You Mean and Mean What You Say
And that's the thing about people who mean everything they say. They think everyone else does too.
Not everyone means everything they say. This is a tough life lesson to learn, especially to those people who grew up instilled with principles of honesty and integrity deeply embedded in their psyche. As we face the real world, we would like to think that everyone is honest, and has the best intentions, but this is simply not true. We have to take the world for what it is.

This doesn't mean that we should go around being dishonest just because everyone else is but it does mean that we shouldn't be so naive to believe that what everyone says is true. An old saying might be a little too harsh but it is something to think about "Believe only half of what you see, and none of what you hear." Learn to trust those who only deserve your trust and no one who doesn't.

You Can Only Lose What You Cling To
You can only lose what you cling to.
When we hold onto people and material things too tightly, we often find that we lose them. Without the correct balance in life many things fail easily. Often times when things fail they fail as a result of us doing entirely too much. When we try to control relationships by being manipulative or forceful in our ideals we often find we push the other person away so much that they remove their presence, sometimes in both the physical and mental nature.

Life Is A Succession Of Lessons

If a person wants to be successful in life they have to be willing to "give" hard work, to "receive" the benefits of working hard. If a person wants for people to be genuine with them they must be willing to give "genuine advice and love" in order to receive it back.
