Announcement: Wish you could change your past? Learn to let go and create a life you love with the Tiny Buddha course!

Everybody wants happiness, nobody wants pain, but you can’t have a rainbow without a little rain.

Don’t let past relationships ruin your future happiness. Scars remind us of where we’ve been, not where we are going.

Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It’s a relationship between equals.

Tough times never last, but tough people do.

Rejection doesn’t hurt, expectation does. Lying doesn’t destroy, denial does. Forgetfulness doesn’t heal, forgiveness does.

The intensity of the pain depends on the degree of resistance to the present moment.

Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you.

I follow four dictates: face it, accept it, deal with it, then let it go.

Never fear shadows. They simply mean there’s a light shining somewhere nearby.

We are like the little branch that quivers during a storm, doubting our strength and forgetting we are the tree—deeply rooted to withstand all life’s upheavals.

Pain can change you, but that doesn’t mean it has to be a bad change. Take that pain and turn it into wisdom.

The only way out of the labyrinth of suffering is to forgive.

Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have—life itself.

When something bad happens you have three choices. You can let it define you, let it destroy you, or you can let it strengthen you.

Look at what you’ve got and make the best of it. It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.

Getting over a painful experience is much like crossing monkey bars. You have to let go at some point in order to move forward.

The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but thought about it. Be aware of the thoughts you are thinking.

A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal.

Prefer a loss to a dishonest gain; the one brings pain at the moment, the other for all time.

Life always waits for some crisis to occur before revealing itself at its most brilliant.
