Life is all about your emotional response to a situation. Remember, in order to live a happy life, you need to make choices that will coincide with those goals.
Deactivating my Facebook was almost like getting rid of a drug addiction at first. I would instinctively type in Facebook on my phone, without even really wanting to use it.
Every dawn is a pink-painted sky of redemption.
Accept a life of mediocrity and don’t try to change it. Dream careers and exciting travel and supportive partners and loyal friends were made for other people, not you. Just sit there, and feel nothing. Not triumph nor failure. Just be neutral, just take this as your fate.
Spoiler alert: life is hard and messy. It’s also lovely and beautiful. Stop worrying about some deadline you’ve made up in your head or one that someone else, that’s not going through what you’re going through, has tried to push your way.

Find your quiet time. People often think this has to mean meditating in the middle of an empty space in some kind of yoga position. But you can find your quiet time anywhere.

They’ll find you.

Work every day to remember that just because someone’s opinion is different than yours does not automatically mean it is wrong. Do everything you can to understand the lenses through which other people look at the world.
Maybe you will never be satisfied with what you have and life will always disappoint you. Maybe you will always waste your goodness and choose to brood in the misfortunes of your life.
