There are few things in life that you can control; other people’s reactions, the way they treat you, and how an event will turn out are not among them.
Romance isn’t just what you see in the movies. There’s no need to run through the airport. No need to find a thing called a “boom box” and stand outside her window. No need for an entire field of daffodils. All we want is to know we matter to you.
Wait until you’re not a back-up, a side-chick, a rebound, or the reason they broke up. Wait until you are the one, not the other one.
When was the last time someone simply asked you, “What is it that I can give more of or start doing for you?”
There are only so many mornings to enjoy a nice cup. To cherish the warm feeling of that first sip and relish in the pungent aroma. Make sure it’s some damn good coffee.
Being able to identify and handle your emotions accurately will be a key player in determining your happiness.
If there’s one thing I know for sure, it’s this: Obstacles are inevitable; suffering is optional.
If you’re always in a group setting with your next-level-friend-to-be, try asking them to hang out alone. When you spend time one on one, you’re able to have less guarded conversations and get to know the other person better.
Humans experience everything differently. No two people have lived the same lives; no two people have felt the same suffering.
We may be fragile sometimes, but we are always strong.
