Stop worrying about what people will say, rather, worry about what God thinks.
Choose your friends wisely; do not allow peer pressure to take charge of your decisions. Think properly before you take major decisions. Seek wise counsel if need be but the ultimate decision should be yours.
Enjoy your youth or singlehood. Make your bible your yardstick for living. Above all, pray concerning every situation.
Don’t be discouraged. Every bad phase will pass. Just keep on keeping on and you’ll get there in no time.
Do to others what you would have them do to you. Be kind to people and do not discriminate.
Be careful of guys who are only interested in your body. Put God first in all you do and be mindful of the friends you keep.
