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.

Don’t be afraid to take an unfamiliar path. Sometimes they’re the ones that take you to the best places.

Breathe. Step back. Think. Then react.

You only have so much emotional energy each day. Don’t spend it on things that don’t matter or on people who don’t value you or your time. Be discerning.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.

There’s no such thing as what you ‘should’ be doing with your life. If you’re not holding yourself back from something you really want to try, and you enjoy the way you spend your day, then you’re a smashing success.

Love is not about possession. Love is about appreciation.

You are more than what you do, produce, or achieve. Don’t believe for a second that your output and your income dictate your worth. They don’t.

Don’t stress. Do your best and forget the rest.

Silence isn’t empty. It’s full of answers.

Don’t worry if someone does not like you. Most people are struggling to like themselves.

Every day is a new beginning. Take a deep breath and start again.

Kindness begins with the understanding that we all struggle.

When people say ‘Everything is going to be okay,’ they don’t mean everything is going to turn out exactly as you hope it will. No one can promise that. They mean you are stronger than you think, so no matter what happens, you will be okay.

Peace is accepting today, releasing yesterday, and giving up the need to control tomorrow.

Be okay with not knowing for sure what might come next, but know that whatever it is, you will be okay.

We often hold a grudge because we don’t want to let the other person off the hook. But who’s really hooked—the one who’s holding on or the one who’s moved on?

Let it hurt. Let it heal. Let it go.

Life isn’t always fair. Some people are born into better environments. Some people have better genetics. Some are in the right place at the right time. If you’re trying to change your life, all of this is irrelevant. All that matters is that you accept where you are, figure out where you want to be, and then do what you can, today and every day, to hold your head high and keep moving forward.

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