    1. There is no “good” and “bad”. There's what you need and what you don't need. And everyone needs to be aware of what they need.
    2. All emotions and feelings are useful. We are not “good” or” bad”, we are always different. Nothing can be suppressed, everything must be lived and accepted in yourself. It helps to accept others as well.
    3. Happiness is the degree of contribution to life. How much you invested, how much you received. Converting your emotions and energy into a hormonal reward. What is desirable at the same time-to do things with love. And do something for the person you love. Emotional contact with the world is very important.
    4. Children are not toys and not fu. This is a completely natural biological process. And a real test of your level of development. In the beginning, you know yourself. Then you get close to the other person and accept them. Then you raise a new person. Increasing difficulty. But also happiness is proportional to the contribution. But the contribution must be adequate, sincere and competent.
    5. Neither extreme is better. Better – the middle, flexibility and flair. Just listen to yourself, get to know yourself, and then everything will become clear in the situation, or you will make a mistake and it will become clear. Making mistakes is good. You need to allow yourself this.
    6. Life doesn't stop. It is constantly flowing and changing. To live, you need to develop and change yourself. Attempts to turn away from it (addiction) end very badly. And the lost time is not returned.
    1. Religion. I was born into a family of not so super-religious parents, but who pay special attention to the issues of faith. Since childhood, they tried to instill in me a love for God, for the covenants. And I really thought a lot about God, sometimes I prayed. It was not a memorized “our Father”, but just at the end of the day I told God about what had happened. I thought someone could hear me there. Now I combine two positions in this regard: 1. Do not care. I don't care which religion is right, which god is real, or whether there is a god at all. I do not think about what will happen after death, I do not keep the covenants of God. Yes, I sin in small ways. 2. I tend to think that I am my own god. That I make my own destiny. That I have power over myself. (Not to be confused with megalomania).

    2. Attitude to adults.
      As a child, I always tried to follow the chain of command, respect my elders, regardless of their merits, level of development, and so on. Now I understand that age is not an indicator of intelligence, merit. I don't see the point in showing respect to a 50-year-old man I don't know, who will prove to me that the earth is flat, and his only argument would be “I'm older than you, you little dandy, I know better.” When I was a kid, I would have swallowed it and taken it for granted.

    3. Attitude to Politics.

    I don't think it's worth talking about. As I grow older , I understand more.

    1. Probably attitude to the police.

    That's not exactly a bad point, I don't hate cops. I still respect them and their cause. It's just that if children's literature (Uncle Styopa) teaches us that the police are on guard of the law, will protect us and all that, then now, I don't feel safe, especially when the police are around. I can't explain it, just the effect of the news.

    1. Attitude to death.

    Not just mine, but everything around it. As a child, I was terribly afraid of the sight of dead pigeons/cats, I was afraid of losing someone. I haven't really thought much about it, to be honest. Now I started to take it easier.

  1. Many people have already written about religion, I am no exception, it's not that I was forced to do it. On the contrary, as a child, it was almost natural. In the Catholic school, God was in the form of feasts and prayers, then he was in the temples where my mother and I worked, that is, I'm not joking, I was really aware of His almost living presence, and it's not about ignorance of the structure of the universe. He absolutely firmly occupied his place there and ruled it. But then, after studying everything that was written by people in the original, as far as it was available to me, it became clear that all this is just a reflection of people's fantasies. And in reality, no one knows anything about the afterlife. 2. Attitude to the family. In childhood, we were raised with the belief that it was necessary, but as we got older, it became so necessary that it was no longer necessary. 3. Attitude to people, in childhood just communication was over the edge, now a couple of friends that you see very rarely is quite enough. In general, we need to value time and life more. We don't have much time to live, and then no one knows what will happen.

    • Everyone has their own truth and their own guarantee of the “right” life. Whether it's a generational dispute or a difference in parenting. A person can listen, give advice, and even consider opinions, but they will probably act according to their own truth, and not someone else's.
    • Religion. At the age of 9-10, I myself expressed a desire to be baptized. There were no particularly religious people in the family. But for some reason they decided to baptize. After a while, I took off the cross and calmly put it on the shelf — in my opinion, I just took it off once and just didn't put it on. There was criticism of this from family members-they interpreted this silent gesture as a desire to “be different from everyone else”, to stick out their “I” , etc., although there were no such motives as I remember now. There was a lot of controversy about this. I just said that I don't believe it, so I don't see the point of wearing a cross. This is not a decoration on a string, but still a symbolism, and to wear symbols without a sub-theme of one's own beliefs — well, such a thing. I respect religion, as I respect the people for whom it has a place in life. But I am for absolute freedom of religion and I am absolutely categorical about the imposition of faith.�
    • Everyone is free to choose in which direction to move in life. This seems to be a simple truth, and everything is quite obvious. But, as it turns out, not for everyone. And this applies to everything-education, work, relationships, etc.
    1. Everything passes. You just need to be patient, survive this period of time. Not always so bad, not always so painful. It helps to be bold and brave.
    2. It's hard for everyone.Don't make it up that someone is worse off.
    3. If you believe in yourself, then you don't feel the need to believe God.
