When you over hear someone talking on the phone, don't assume what they are talking about because you are only hearing one side of the conversation. Don't jump to any assumptions.

Being too open is a bad thing so you have to be careful what information you share about yourself.

You have to be careful who you rant to when you are ranting about a person you had an issue with.

When taking about someone, you have to be careful who you are talking to.

When talking to someone about your interests, if they aren't responding or looking at you or asking you about your interests, they aren't interested.

When talking, make sure you pause for a few seconds every few sentences to see if the other person has anything to add or if they have any questions to ask so that way they get a word in edgewise.

Some people say "I can't help it" as a cop out for poor habits, bad behavior, and rude behavior.

Some people don't know the difference between excuse and explanation.

People don't always want to hear the truth and will believe whatever they want to believe.

If people don't like what I say about people using AS as an excuse and not even trying because they're using it as a crutch, they will throw in broken legs, deafness, blindness, Alzheimer's, comparing it to AS because they are pissed and want an excuse.

Lot of people do not admit their wrong doings and their actions such as they might not admit they are a jerk sometimes.

Some people get mad when you point out their irony because of their pride.

NTs also can't accept criticism or else there be no white lies, beating around the bush, and sugar coating.

Obsessions and special interests are acceptable just as long as they are socially acceptable such as sports.

It's rude to tell people you aren't interested what they are talking about and you don't want to hear it unless you are the parent saying it to your child because you are their teacher and are teaching them skills.

It's rude to call people fat but it's not rude to call people thin because doctors are focused on weight issues and so are companies and magazines and it pressures females to want to lose weight and be thin. Look at a those diet pills and slim fast and models. It's considered good to be thin and considered bad to be fat even though being underweight is bad too but society accepts it. Look at Hollywood.

Oh, you can't help that, said the Cat: we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.
How do you know I'm mad? said Alice.
You must be, said the Cat, or you wouldn't have come here.

A good friend is someone who knows how to tell you to shut up when you talk too much.

Be conservative in what you do; be liberal in what you accept from others.

Slap anyone who thinks that statement has literal political connotations. :P

The surest way of avoiding disappointment is to have low expectations.

This is what I have learned my self.
Most people are unreliable and can't be counted on , even for little things , and I plan a worse case scenario as an alternate.

Once I admonished an in-law about this , as opportunity presented, and the remark was " That's cynical".
My in-law gets bent out of shape to large degree when people dont line up to expectations or 'the plan'.

You are your memories combined with what you learn. Choose carefully, my friends. Time is finite, but you should still plan on living 1.5[current average expected lifespan for your demographic]. Choose your habits carefully. Quantify pleasure and risk.

One can be wise and still a hedonist.

Don't take your health for granted. Look after your body while its condition is still something you can control.

Having friends online is just as great as having friends in real life.

Giving something back to yourself even though you don't really need it at the time, makes you more happy in the long run.

People have bad days, don't let that discourage you from talking to the person another time.

If you have negative thoughts in your head, try listening to more music to block out those thoughts.
