1. Never argue in public

Agree to keep your problems private.

People love relationship drama and will only make things worse, twisting the truth and judging without knowing the whole story.

Don’t let them interfere in your personal affairs. Keep it private and stay in control.

2. Assume that people will never change

Their pace of learning is too small.

The patterns that lead them to deceitful situations will haunt them for the rest of their lives, trapping them in a hopeless existence far from the life they dream of living.

3. Stay away from the unlucky ones

If you know they are, it’s because they’ve told you.

If they told it to you, it’s because they believe it.

If they believe it, it means they tend to blame fate for their problems.

Remember: Bad luck may not be contagious, but complaining is.

4. They’ll never tell you, but they are looking to be managed
