Be strong now, because things will get better. It might be stormy now, but it can’t rain forever.

Those who suffer from mental illness are stronger than you think. We must fight to go to work, care for our families, be there for our friends, and act ‘normal’ while battling unimaginable pain.

You are strong for getting out of bed in the morning when it feels like hell. You are brave for doing things even though they scare you or make you anxious. And you are amazing for trying and holding on no matter how hard life gets.

Embrace the pain of letting go of that which is not good for you. Step into it. You are stronger than the pain. You can survive and you will thrive again.

The strongest hearts have the most scars.

Be strong enough to stand alone, smart enough to know when you need help, and brave enough to ask for it.

You never know how strong you are until being strong is your only choice.

Never assume that loud is strong and quiet is weak.

Until you heal the wounds of your past, you are going to bleed. You can bandage the bleeding with food, with alcohol, with drugs, with work, with cigarettes, with sex; but eventually, it will all ooze through and stain your life. You must find the strength to open the wounds, stick your hands inside, pull out the core of the pain that is holding you in your past, the memories, and make peace with them.

Wake up today knowing that whatever happens, you can handle it.

What hurts you today makes you stronger tomorrow.

In case no one told you today:
 You’re beautiful. You’re loved. You’re needed. You’re alive for a reason. 
You’re stronger than you think. You’re going to get through this. 
I’m glad you’re alive. Don’t give up!

In the end, you’ve got to be your own hero because everyone’s busy trying to save themselves.

Pause and remember: Every single event in your life, especially the difficult lessons, have made you smarter, stronger, an wiser than you were yesterday.

Never think you are weak if you cry. Every tear is replaced with wisdom and strength.

Remember the time you thought you never could survive? You did it, and you can do it again.

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.

Just breathe. You are strong enough to handle your challenges, wise enough to find solutions to your problems, and capable enough to do whatever needs to be done.

I survived because the fire inside me burned brighter than the fire around me.

People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.
