You will need to grant yourself the pat on the back in recognition for success. Even the smallest successes. Remember everyone is trying their best. That all in all we just want to be loved. All of us. Remember that most of these things you wont remember. Then remember to remember. In these four years, I have come out with little more knowledge than I had before. But I think of all the things I have learned, the most important is even simpler. It is something that is fool-proof and never-failing.
