    • Take your time trying new experiences. Something that initially seem difficult can start to like and be more rewarding when you get used to it.
    • Do not commit too. You do not want to ruin the fun for many things to do together. The time should be enjoyable, not stressful.
    • It's your time. If you decide to leave a church, a volunteer group or leave a hobby, it's fine. You're the first and last person who can judge what is good for your time; the opinion of other people are only opinions. Remember, it's your life, so do your best with it and become a good person.
