Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.

You are not a mess. You are a feeling person in a messy world.

Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.

Letting go may sound so simple, but rarely is it a one-time thing. Just keep letting go, until one day it’s gone for good.

If love becomes too painful, then it’s time to let that love go and save yourself. You have to keep this in mind because you’ll be able to find another love but not another self.

Why let go of yesterday? Because yesterday has already let go of you.

You teach people how to treat you by what you allow, what you stop, and what you reinforce.

What seems to us as bitter trials are often blessings in disguise.

Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.

Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable.

It’s not about ‘having’ time. It’s about making time. If it matters, you will make time.

Holding on is believing that there’s only a past; letting go is knowing that there’s a future.

You can’t build joy on a feeling of self-loathing.

The only person who can pull me down is myself, and I’m not going to let myself pull me down anymore.

Most of us have two lives. The life we live, and the unlived life within us.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.

Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of rewards, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.

You will never gain anyone’s approval by begging for it. When you stand confident in your own worth, respect follows.

Grief is like the ocean; it comes on waves ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm, and sometimes it is overwhelming. All we can do is learn to swim.

It is not stress that kills us, it is our reaction to it.
