Most relationships fail because we spend too much time pointing out each other’s mistakes and not enough time enjoy each other’s company.

Never define yourself by your relationship status, your income, or your looks. It’s your generosity, kindness, and compassion that counts.

The world isn’t filled with ‘haters’ and ‘toxic people.’ It’s filled with people who are hurting and trying, ineffectively, to give themselves some relief. So distance yourself if you must, but try to do it with empathy, not judgment. The only cure for ‘haters’ is love, so try to show them more kindness than they showed you. This is how we can slowly make the world a more loving place.

Love is not about possession. Love is about appreciation.

Live simply. Dream big. Be grateful. Give love. Laugh lots.

Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness, and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.

Life is short. Spend it with friends who make you laugh and feel loved.

There are things that we don’t want to happen but have to accept, things we don’t want to know but have to learn, people we can’t live without but have to let go.

The world would be a happier, more peaceful place if we all tried to understand instead of judging, paused before reacting, and gave each other the benefit of the doubt instead of assuming the worst.

Blood makes you related. Loyalty makes you family.

Family isn’t always blood. It’s the people in your life who want you in theirs. The ones who accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile, and who love you no matter what.

Never underestimate the power of good morning texts, apologies, and random compliments.

It’s scary to think that one day we’re going to have to live without our mother or father or brother or husband or wife. Or that one day we’re going to have to walk this earth without our best friend by our side, or them without us. Appreciate your loved ones while you can, because none of us are going to be here forever.

Accept the fact that you will grow apart from people you’ve had significant relationships with. Understand when someone no longer positively affects your life. Let them go. Don’t hinder your growth.

The person who doesn’t value you is blocking you from the one who will. Let them go.

Distance doesn’t ruin a relationship, doubts do.

When I loved myself enough, I began leaving whatever wasn’t healthy. This meant people, jobs, my own beliefs and habits—anything that kept me small. My judgment called it disloyal. Now I see it as self-loving.

Letting go doesn’t mean that you don’t care about someone anymore. It’s just realizing that the only person you really have control over is yourself.

Be somebody who makes everybody feel like a somebody.

We can live without religion and meditation, but we cannot survive without human affection.
