Be there. Be open. Be honest. Be kind. Be willing to listen, understand, accept, support, and forgive. This is what it means to love.

The key to being happy is knowing you have the power to choose what to accept and what to let go.

Life is a balance between what we can control and what we cannot. I am learning to live between effort and surrender.

One of the happiest moments in your life is when you find the courage to let go of what you can’t change.

Accept that you will never be perfect, life will always have challenges, and other people will sometimes disappoint you. Acceptance is the first step toward peace.

Love is the ability and willingness to allow those that you care for to be what they choose for themselves without any insistence that they satisfy you.

You only have so much emotional energy each day. You can use it to fight with people, resist the present, and worry about the future, or you can agree to disagree, accept the present, and use your energy to create the future. Which will you choose?

If it comes, let it. If it goes, let it.

When you learn to accept instead of expect, you’ll have fewer disappointments.

Some people will never change, and you just have to accept that.

Breathe. Relax. Let go.

It’s okay if you don’t feel grateful in this moment, even if you know you have a lot to be grateful for. Let yourself feel whatever you feel. It will be a lot easier to focus on your blessings after you let the pain run through you.

Anything you can’t control in life is teaching you how to let go.

Breathe in. Breathe out. Let it be.

You don’t need anyone’s affection or approval in order to be good enough. When someone rejects or abandons or judges you, it isn’t actually about you. It’s about them and their own insecurities, limitations, and needs, and you don’t have to internalize that. Your worth isn’t contingent upon other people’s acceptance of you—it’s something inherent.

People are who they are. You can’t force someone to be who you want them to be. If you choose to stay, do it because you can accept them, not because you think you can change them.

Whatever you’re feeling, it will eventually pass. You won’t feel sad forever. At some point, you will feel happy again. You won’t feel anxious forever. In time, you will feel calm again. You don’t have to fight your feelings or feel guilty for having them. You just have to accept them and be good to yourself while you ride this out. Resisting your emotions and shaming yourself will only cause you more pain, and you don’t deserve that. You deserve your own love, acceptance, and compassion.

The greatest gift you can give to others is the gift of unconditional love and acceptance.

Surrender to what is. Let go of what was. Have faith in what will be.

It’s oversimplified to say ‘Happiness is a choice.’ Some people are struggling with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and other conditions that make it challenging to find peace and joy. But ‘challenging’ doesn’t mean impossible. It’s more accurate to say, ‘Happiness takes lots of choices that are sometimes hard to make.’ Like: the choice to accept ourselves and our struggles, the choice to take responsibility for getting help, and the choice to do the things that are good for us, even when—especially when—we feel like giving up.
