2. Develop a network of friends whom you can trust – who’ll be there to support you, and give encouragement.
3. Work on developing a positive mind set. Be grateful, optimistic, and focus on success.
4. Believe that you can change things, and make a difference. You’re not a helpless victim; you can take some control.
5. However, don’t waste your energy on things you cannot change. Walk away from toxic people and hopeless situations.
