    Either someone warned you, or you knew better, but you still didn't listen to reason.

    What's something that you paid the price or otherwise had to suffer through to learn?

    Living with integrity is more important than momentary excitement.

    Listen to your inner voice. No matter what it’s talking about.

    Whether it says “this is a one sided relationship you’re in.” Or “this guy is about to swing.” Or “it’s gonna hurt but it’s totally worth it”. Or “no, you idiot, you won’t get another chance at this.” Or “even if you don’t get caught, this is a really stupid idea.” LISTEN. Don’t blow it off. Even though it’s technically you, it’s smarter than you are.

    Let’s see...everything I know, throughout my entire life.

    Yep, that about covers it. And I’ve got the scars to prove it. :lol:

    Never have a custom guitar built to your personal specifications. You will never be able to sell it, however nice it is.

    I already posted the long version before, but briefly, never gamble your last dollar on a horse race.

    If you're a wrestler, always wear ear protection. I now have cauliflower ears for life.
