Things I wish I had known at eighteen.

It's never too late to start afresh.

Nobody is indispensable to you.

Worst case scenarios rarely happen.

People change: they are not today who they were ten years ago nor will they be in ten years time who they are today.

The greatest thing that you can give anybody is your loyalty.

The most valuable thing you can give to children is your time.

Love conquers all.

Revenge is a dish best eaten cold.

We have passed this way before, we will pass this way again.

Anxiety and depression are how we see the world, they are not how the world really is.

If you want to be happy, spend time with people who make you happy and do those things that make you happy.

Do what you fear and the death of fear is assured.

Every adversity brings with it the seed of a greater benefit.

And finally the thing many spend their whole lives searching for but never find: The purpose of life is our evolution to a higher form.

Oh thank you again Jeff for your wisdom and knowledge and experience. May I ask you to expand on the evolution to a higher form? If not on a public forum where you will no doubt be criticised to high hell!!! Maybe in a private chat? I could do with moving in with you for a few weeks retreat!!! Rachel x

Rachel, will reply on PM as the Evolution to Higher Forms is not about anxiety. Thanks for your kind words.

Also, could you reply to my email as I always see that but don't always get notified from this forum? in fact if it's ok with you I would love to correspond via email? No probs if not, I imagine you have loads of requests from everyone seeking your help🥵 I can send it you though if it's ok?
