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

You are allowed to feel messed up and inside out. It doesn’t mean you’re defective—it just means you’re human.

If you know someone who’s depressed, please resolve never to ask them why. Depression isn’t a straightforward response to a bad situation; depression just is, like the weather. Try to understand the blackness, lethargy, hopelessness, and loneliness they’re going through. Be there for them when they come through the other side. It’s hard to be a friend to someone who’s depressed, but it is one of the kindest, noblest, and best things you will ever do.

Waiting around for someone else to make you happy is the best way to be sad.

Do not dwell on the past. Your history cannot be erased, but your future has yet to be written, so make the most of what is going to happen instead of worrying about what you cannot change.

Never let anyone disturb your composure, deter your accomplishment, or destroy your happiness.

Five things you can’t control: What other people think of you. What other people do. What happens around you. The outcome of your efforts. The passage of time. So let go and focus on what you can control—what you do today.

A great attitude becomes a great mood. A great mood becomes a great day. A great day becomes a great year. A great year becomes a great life.

Always, always trust your first gut instincts. If you feel something’s wrong, it usually is.

Blood makes you related. Loyalty makes you family.

People change for two main reasons: either their minds have been opened or their hearts have been broken.

Courage doesn’t happen when you have all the answers. It happens when you are ready to face the questions you have been avoiding your whole life.

A lot of problems in the world would disappear if we talked to each other instead of about each other.

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.

I stopped telling myself that I’m lost. I’m not. I’m on a road with no destination, I’m just driving with hope that I’ll find a place that I like and I’ll stay there. I’m not lost, I’m on my way.

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.

Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed.

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.

No matter who you are, no matter what you do, you absolutely, positively do have the power to change.
