This is the best advice I can give you right now.

When you are feeling miserable,
learn to recognize what could cheer you up.

Sometimes it's getting drunk or getting high.
Sometimes it's fucking.
Sometimes it's exercising.
Sometimes it's buying something, or eating something nice.
Sometimes it's reading a book, listening a song, dancing a little.
Sometimes it's literally just taking a shit.
Sometimes it's being with friends, other times it's being alone.

What's most important to know is this,
or you can wreck your life pretty badly:
it's not always the same thing.

Some things I've learned during my 40 years on Earth. I'm not including scientific/technical stuff, just everyday stuff; I'm also not including skills, manners, or basic things such as speaking or reading, which I owe to my parents :-)

The list is roughly in chronological order. Years are only approximate references, none of these lessons I learned overnight, but they all changed my life.
