    7 Cardinal Rules for Life

    is one of the lists I've seen several times in the past year,
    this narration is an examination of the following rules.

    1. Make Peace With Your Past
    so it won't disturb your present.

    2. What Other People Think of You
    is none of your business.

    3. Time Heals Almost Everything
    give it time.

    4. No One Is In Charge
    of your happiness, except you.

    5. Don't Compare Yourself to Others
    and don't judge them, you have no idea
    what their journey is all about

    6. Stop Thinking Too Much
    it's all right to not know the answers,
    they will come to you when you least expect it.

    7. Smile
    you don't own all the problems in the world.
