    If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

    What would be that pesky habit that you've wanted to shake off forever but haven't been able to? For me, I would definitely want to be less impatient and approach everything in life with more calmness and patience.

    Can someone provide some tips on how to learn German or French?

    Duolingo is probably the best app out there for learning any language. I started learning French using Duolingo about a year ago and I really enjoyed it. But the app alone isn't enough. You need someone to converse with you in the language if you really want to learn to speak it. I suggest you...

    “Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”

    I agree. Trying to "find" yourself is to put undue pressure on yourself - you will not realize your life's purpose in an epiphany. You should instead focus on working on yourself, trying to improve yourself, trying new things, learning from new experiences. Only then can you realize what you...

    Developing close relationships

    Developing close relationships takes time, and the older you are, the more time it takes. I have two friends from school that I have known since school and who I can trust with anything.

    Thoughts on the book "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck" by Mark Manson?

    Recently I read the book "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck" by Mark Manson, and I loved the message it conveyed. It's basically a self-help book and the key takeaway is that happiness is not a destination that you will one day reach. Happiness comes from solving problems. For example, if you...

    Your "Faults" are not actually faults

    I agree 100%. Striking a balance is important. If you don't see anything wrong with yourself, you're complacent and you'll never grow. But on the other hand, if you're excessively critical about your flaws, you don't really respect who you are. I think it is important to be able to look at...

    The Importance of Letting Go

    I know what you mean. I've also seen people act proud of all the bad things they've done in the past, and glorify it. But I think it is inevitable that our past WILL define us in some way. Everything that we've done or that has happened to us accumulates and shapes the person we are today. Those...

    Follow Your Heart, It's Not Just A Cliche

    I totally agree with what they say. I think that nowadays people put undue pressure on themselves to find their "passion." And if they can't find something they are passionate about, they feel depressed and unfulfilled. That's not really how it works. Passion is not some hidden talent you...

    What would you say to your younger self?

    I would tell myself, "People will come and go. Don't get too attached, and don't sacrifice yourself for them. They will leave, and you will survive. So focus on yourself first. Don't compromise on your values. Don't compromise on your dreams. Keep trying to better yourself, and everything else...

    How do you stay motivated?

    They say motivation is a fleeting thing. One day you feel driven and motivated and ready to take on anything, and the next day - well, not so much. I suffer from these fluctuations in motivation levels myself. So I wanted to know, how do you stay motivated day in and day out?

    Effect of Social Media on Happinness

    Although I have never been as influenced by social media as the people around me, I agree that it can have a great impact on your happiness. There's just something extremely superficial about it.

    Why is it so hard to motivate to stay healthy and exercise?

    When you're starting out, the best thing you can do is to build a routine. Assign a particular time of the day every day to work out. Mornings are usually the best.
