When you start really thinking about what you do control, you start to realize that the circumstances aren’t the question. The question is: what are you going to do now?
You don’t have to be everything, all the time. You don’t have to do anything perfectly.
Toxic people are manipulative, codependent, and reliant on you to deal with the overwhelming negativity in their lives. They are not just people with problems – they are people who don’t take responsibility for those problems.
The point is that being a mess does not make you more likable, it makes you more pitied.
We are the generation that drinks green juice in the morning and made vegan food popular. We have political opinions and source our food locally and care about the chemicals that are in cleaning supplies.
You have to realize that what hurts you is what helps you – you just don’t know why it’s helping you yet.
You’re not less blessed than someone because you don’t have what they have. You might just be less convinced that you deserve it.
Love will feel different than you imagined it could.
You should leave hangouts feeling inspired to keep working on your life, not defeated because you’re not good enough to fit in yet.
