Dear self, don’t allow anyone to trigger you. Let it go. Walk away. You’ll be proud of yourself later.

Do not let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace.

You have no idea how long something you say can stay inside someone’s mind.

Your mental health is more important than your career, money, other people’s opinions, that event you said you would attend, your partner’s mood and your family’s wishes, combined. If taking care of yourself means letting someone down, then let someone down.

Tell people what you love about them. Less criticism, more compliments.

Never apologize for being too much. Too passionate. Too strange. Too curious. Because no, you’re not normal, and that’s a blessing.

Don’t let the ugly in others kill the beauty in you.

Maturity is realizing how many things don’t require your comment.

Anyone can find the dirt in someone. Be the one who finds the gold.

We often nitpick and criticize little things when we’re hurting. If you see someone else doing this, try not to take it personally. If that person is you, ask yourself, ‘What am I really upset about? And what can I do to address that pain instead of projecting it onto someone else?’

You have been criticizing yourself for years, and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.

Be an encourager. The world has plenty of critics already.

How people treat other people is a direct reflection of how they feel about themselves.

When we judge or criticize another person, it says nothing about that person; it merely says something about our own need to be critical.

When you are not attached to praise or criticism, an interesting freedom is yours.

One of the most freeing things we learn in life is that we don’t have to like everyone, everyone doesn’t have to like us, and it’s perfectly OK.

Life is too short to waste time waiting for other people’s approval on how you live it.

People have a way of becoming what you encourage them to be, not what you nag them to be.

Rejection is not fatal; it is merely someone’s opinion.

When you blame and criticize others, you are avoiding some truth about yourself.
