If we grew apart as friends, there’s 100% chance I’m still cheering you on from afar and that I still love you.

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

You have no idea how many people there are in the world whose day could be made and their life changed for the better if someone would just look them in the eye, smile, and say, ‘Hello.’

If you have nothing but a caring family, believe me, you are rich.

Being told you’re appreciated is one of the simplest yet most incredible things you can ever hear.

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

Please remember to check in on your strong friend, your busy friend, your happy friend, your ‘seems to handle everything well’ friend.

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.

I’m a big fan of watching people grow and become healthier, happier versions of themselves.

You can’t be everyone’s hero. You can’t take away everyone’s pain, solve all their problems, and make them feel happy with themselves and their lives. All you can do is love them, and that’s all you have to do. Just love them in their messiness, their confusion, their grief. See them, hear them, and accept them without judgment. Then let them know it’s okay to be right where they are, and if and when they need you, you’ll be there.

I truly appreciate kindness. I appreciate people checking up on me. I appreciate a quick message. I appreciate those who ask if I’m okay. I appreciate every single person in my life who has tried to brighten my days. It’s the little things that matter the most.⠀

Don’t tell someone to get over it. Help them get through it.

When you can’t look on the bright side, I will sit with you in the dark.

Being genetically related doesn’t make you family. Love, support, trust, sacrifice, honesty, protection, acceptance, security, compromise, gratitude, respect and loyalty are what make you family.

Sometimes you just need to talk about something—not to get sympathy or help, but just to kill its power by allowing the truth of things to hit the air.

The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer someone else up.

Be there. Be open. Be honest. Be kind. Be willing to listen, understand, accept, support, and forgive. This is what it means to love.

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

People don’t always need advice. Sometimes all they really need is a hand to hold, an ear to listen, and a heart to understand them.

Support your friends. Listen to their ideas. Go to their events. Share their posts. Celebrate in their victories and remind them of their importance after their failures. A little support can go a very long way in someone’s life.
