Sometimes you simply have to accept that you can’t accomplish as much as you’d like to. If you’re sick, tired, or hurting emotionally, you just have to do what you reasonably you can and then give yourself whatever you need to feel better. You may feel like you’re falling behind, but you’re not failing. You’re doing what you need to do to take good care of yourself, and that’s the most important thing you can do when you’re struggling.

Sometimes things have to go wrong before they can go right. Sometimes we have to let the wrong people walk out before we allow the right people to walk in. Sometimes we have to feel weak in order to know what it’s like to feel strong. Sometimes you have to be broken to realize you’ll never be shattered.

It’s okay if you fall apart sometimes. Tacos fall apart, and we still love them.

And if today, all you did was hold yourself together, I am proud of you.

When a flower doesn’t bloom, you fix the environment it grows in, not the flower.

Kindness: Loaning someone your strength instead of reminding them of their weakness.

I used to dislike being sensitive. I thought it made me weak. But take away that single trait, and you take away the very essence of who I am. You take away my conscience, my ability to empathize, my intuition, my creativity, my deep appreciation of the little things, my vivid inner life, my keen awareness of others pain and my passion for it all.

Never assume that loud is strong and quiet is weak.

You are strong when you know your weaknesses. You are beautiful when you appreciate your flaws. You are wise when you learn from your mistakes.

You are not a burden. You HAVE a burden, 
which by definition, is too heavy to carry on your own.

Success is achieved by developing our strengths, not by eliminating our weaknesses.

To share your weakness is to make yourself vulnerable; to make yourself vulnerable is to show your strength.

A beautiful thing is never perfect.

Growth begins when we begin to accept our weaknesses.

Our strength grows out of our weaknesses.

Compassion and happiness are not a sign of weakness but a sign of strength.

It is much more valuable to look for the strength in others. You can gain nothing by criticizing their imperfections.

An obstacle may be either a stepping stone or a stumbling block.
