Despite how open, peaceful, and loving you attempt to be, people can only meet you as deeply as they’ve met themselves.

Two things to remember in life: Take care of your thoughts when you are alone and take care of your words when you are with people.

Sometimes walking away is the only option because you finally respect yourself enough to know that you deserve better.

At the end of the day remind yourself that you did the best you could today, and that is good enough.

Just when the caterpillar thought her life was over, she became a butterfly.

Please don’t judge people. You don’t know what it took someone to get out of bed, look and feel as presentable as possible and face the day. You never truly know the daily struggles of others.

Stop comparing where you’re at with where everyone else is. It doesn’t move you farther ahead, improve your situation, or help you find peace. It just feeds your shame, fuels your feelings of inadequacy, and ultimately, it keeps you stuck. The reality is that there is no one correct path in life. Everyone has their own unique journey. A path that’s right for someone else won’t necessarily be a path that’s right for you. And that’s okay. Your journey isn’t right or wrong, or good or bad. It’s just different.

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

My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.

It’s okay to care about what people think. Just know there’s a difference between valuing someone’s opinion and needing their approval.

Don’t judge people for the choices they make when you don’t know the options they had to choose from.

There’s no WiFi in the forest, but I promise you’ll find a better connection.

A moment of patience in a moment of anger saves you a hundred moments of regret.

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.

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.

Don’t trade your authenticity for approval.

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.

Just because you aren’t making progress as fast as you think you should doesn’t mean you aren’t making progress.

If you’re not really happy, don’t fake a smile on my behalf. I’d rather you spill your guts with tears every day until your smile is real. Because I don’t care about the show, the disguise, the politically correctness. If you’re in my life, I want you to be in your own skin.

Sometimes you just need to relax and remind yourself that you’re doing the best you can and everything is going to turn out just fine.
