    Not putting their happiness first. This includes many things… working a job they hate, staying with someone that doesn’t treat them right or that they really don’t love…

    Oh, and not enough people appreciate the little things in life that matter most.

  33. Conor:

    Getting married has to be the most common mistake people make. I think the mistake lies in the misunderstanding of what marriage is. It’s not the next step in a loving relationship. It’s not what you should do to be socially acceptable. It’s a promise, a vow. You are swearing an oath to love and be with that person FOREVER. If you’re not willing to stay with them no matter what, then you shouldn’t get married. I don’t think even 10% of people marrying in the western world understand that.

    Trusting everyone with a pretty face and a bright smile.

    looking at the negative and totally ignoring the positive

  36. Roberto:

    thinking their brain tells them what they need
    when its their heart

  37. Alex:

    They judge others without truly getting to know them first. They judge based on the outward appearance of a person.

    You shouldn’t judge a book by its cover.

  38. Vanessa:

    Always complaining about their unhappiness, yet not taking initiative to improve their lives.
