Everyone is raised differently but something that we all learned growing up is "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything all." As a college student, you can have a lot going on so all you want to hear from others is "you can do it" or "you're so awesome." Being a new college student trying to get use to the school and work, you can get very stressed. Any person you interact with can makes you feel a certain way but its up to you to stay positive. You can do anything you put your mind to and more, if you say nice things to others. If you respect others, others will respect you and you'll feel a lot better about yourself which will help you persevere in anything you do.
