“The first thing I would say is to learn how to love yourself, and the way you do that is not dictated in any rule book or any specific way, its finding harmony with who you are as a person, what you look like and embracing that. And once that happens, life will set you up for success.
And then, I know they always say to treat people the way you want to be treated, but someone told me once that we should treat others the way they want to be treated. Which sounds almost negative, but if you think about it positively, it’s saying that the way I want to be treated maybe is…well obviously in a good way, I want to be treated well, and maybe the way you treat somebody is by talking to them about advice and they respond positively to that. But not everybody responds the same way. Treat them the way that works best for them. This is not about negativity, basically to treat them positively of course, but always try to get to know them as well. And if you don’t know them, [if you have just met them], then treat them the way you want to be treated first and see how they respond to that.”
