When a child can’t calm down they need connection and comfort, not criticism and control.

Love will not save you. But it will hold your hand while you save yourself. And in a world that sometimes seems void of goodness, in a world that sometimes feels too heavy to bear, I think that is all we are really searching for. Someone by our side. Someone who grounds us. Someone who will quietly hug us for twenty minutes straight while we figure it all out. I think that is all anyone really needs. Someone who sees them. Someone who stays.

Be kind to one another. Say a word or two of encouragement. You never know who may need those gentle reminders more than anything today.

Sometimes you don’t need words to make you feel better. You just need the nearness of your dog.

I will never be that friend who calls you every day, but I will always be that friend you can rely on when your world collapses.

We find comfort among those who agree with us—growth among those who don’t.

Remember, we all stumble, every one of us. That’s why it’s a comfort to go hand in hand.

A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval.

You can only grow if you’re willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.
