Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you or makes you happy.
Walking into a bar after having a bad day at #work
Two people who were once very close can without blame or grand betrayal become strangers. Perhaps this is the saddest thing in the world.
I would love to say that you make me weak in the knees but to be quite upfront and completely truthful you make my body forget it has knees at all.
You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.
I used to spend so much time reacting and responding to everyone else that my life had no direction. Other people’s lives, problems, and wants set the course for my life. Once I realized it was okay for me to think about and identify what I wanted, remarkable things began to take place in my life.
Anonymous, The Language of Letting Go
The best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for sacrifice. Ironically, their virtues make them vulnerable; they are often wounded, sometimes destroyed.
The pain that you’ve been feeling, can’t compare to the joy that’s coming.
I am too intelligent, too demanding, and too resourceful for anyone to be able to take charge of me entirely. No one knows me or loves me completely. I have only myself.
I’ve never fooled anyone. I’ve let people fool themselves. They didn’t bother to find out who and what I was. Instead they would invent a character for me. I wouldn’t argue with them. They were obviously loving somebody I wasn’t.
I don’t care about whose DNA has recombined with whose. When everything goes to hell, the people who stand by you without flinching they are your family.
When I’m about to spend the weekend with my college friends
My dad recently told me, “There are many people who will put you down. Don’t be one of them.”
And that sticks with me every single day.
