Spilt milk is not something to cry over,
Even if it is the only milk you have.
You must never cry for a toy
That does not belong to you.
If it does belong to you,
That’s even worse.
Don’t cry when being disciplined by your parents,
Or you will get something to cry for.
Don’t cry if you lose a friend.
You don’t need friends anyway.
Don’t cry when a man leaves you.
He is just a man after all.
You should do well on your own,
And not depend on men for anything.
Don’t cry if you’ve been hurt.
You will only be hurt more.
It’s a waste of your tears.
Don’t cry, my dear.
