I want my daughters too learn, live and breath this. I think every woman needs to learn to not need anyone and to always always be able to hold herself up alone. Nothing wrong with love of being with a man, just learn to keep your independence!
I always put a smile on my face. Don't cry in front of customers no matter how hurtful they are. Don't cry in front of your employees no matter how bad they hurt you or frustrate you. If they see your tears, they win. They are your smile, you win.
