Words of wisdom from an old friend.

One of them drafted the following document that I am now sharing with you.
When I am beset with fears and my hopes seem far removed, it brings to mind the great times that have surrendered to me . Often have I pondered what this kind of dwelling that takes me away from depression should be called, and it has presented itself to me under the mantle of
to be fair with yourself - and expect to have to win the good times for the bad to come on their own account to take away .
Store up for yourself a large quantity of good times, memories and values . It is then you will always weather the depressions and doubts.
Place yourself in friends that are true and care for you.
Don't be petty, or your life will be summed up by regret.
Learn to change and meet new requirements knowing that it can only bring good and that all will be well.
Don't be based in envy or conditions. Time which is small for you can rob you, if you do not take account of it.
Realize that you cannot live your life by statutes , laws and conformities and have a life
For when you govern your own life, what you will then have is a gift from creation and not a place in your misery for not doing so.
Be content to share yourself, and sometimes give without counting the cost.
Make the most of today, and tomorrow, and now, for you cannot have your time twice.
Think not too much of yourself and keep your self-respect.
Be content that there are others that want and need you, and don't isolate yourself from what is true and of value by your selfishness.
Settle to life now, where certainty abounds. And don't drift uselessly from one suspicion to another for suspicion is based in your own weakness.
Give the benefit of the doubt to those who love you, for who can love a fountain of criticism, envy and selfishness.
Do not take your usual journey to the land of missed opportunity and narrowness, for you can make yourself unwanted and already dead.
Better you brace yourself, give thanks for what you have and what is to be won, and.
WAKE UP AND LIVE leo
