Your smile may never be perfect, and that’s okay. Life is too short not to have the cloths, the car, and the teeth you want. Everyone (including your coworkers, your best friend, and some members of your family) will talk about you behind your back, and you’ll talk about them too. It doesn’t mean you don’t love each other. It’s okay to gorge on things that make you happy. Sometimes without fault or reason, relationships deteriorate. It will happen when you’re sixteen, it will happen when you’re sixty. That’s life.
