    it's not a one size fits all proposition. Everybody is different. The best advice you give to a particular individual might be the worst possible advice you could give to someone else. One of the problems with this culture is that we expect everybody to 'fit in' to some arbitrary standard of how people should live their lives, what their values should be, what their goals should be, etc. It doesn't leave much room for individual expression or creativity. 

    Some of the people who have contributed the most to a culture or society but might have been "different" or even "weird" in some people's estimation...Leonardo DaVinci, Newton, Tesla, Einstein, Beethoven, Mozart, Van Gogh and others are some from the past that come to mind...some of those unique individuals might never have made their contributions to civilization had they gone to a mainstream psychiatrist of today, been given a diagnosis of some sort of 'personality disorder' or 'mental illness' and put on some brain-damaging Big Pharma psychiatric drug which might have robbed them of their creativity, passion and motivation to pursue their vision. 

    You should never assume that you have the answers for every individual out there and try to give them "advice' based upon that assumption. We should all be considered as individual as our fingerprints, although some people would prefer to submit to society's arbitrary standards. But even they may be much more individual than they realize. 

    So, if I was forced to give anybody any advice at all, it would probably be to seek one's own truth and purpose in this life and attempt to be guided by an untainted and uncorrupted heart... and vision. It's too easy to be led astray by questionable authority figures with their one-size-fits-all dictums on how a person should live his or her existence. 

    One must be one's own authority, ultimately, or else confront the realization at some point, perhaps when it's too late to do anything about it, that the life one has lived actually belonged to somebody else.....

    Make love a priority - don't just wait around for it like it's some optional swag in life.

    A quote from the silent film star Mary Pickford is the best advice I've ever heard:  "You can have a fresh start any time you choose, for this thing we call failure is not the falling down, it's the staying down."

    You will only find what it means to live when you decide to live for someone else.
