Your needs are as important as anyone else’s. You are human just like everyone else. There is a limit to the sacrifices and compromises you can make. Don’t lose yourself trying to give other people what they are unable to give themselves.
You stay up at night wondering how you can contribute to the world and make a difference. You invest in developing your spiritual, intellectual and moral values.
Smart people give up easily when they fail. They are used to solving problems very quickly compared to others. When they fail at something, they think that something is wrong with them and give up, instead of realizing that it is simply another stepping stone to success.
This is the kind of love that will never give up on you, even when you’ve given up on yourself. This is the kind of love that will build a foundation of mutual trust and respect upon which stands strong partnership.
To my girls who express themselves and speak their mind, who say what they feel, and wear their hearts on their sleeves, don’t change. The world needs your earnest authenticity and creativity.
You need to get over your past, and you need to get out of your own way.
The only thing that will matter in the end is whether we used our pain to give back to the world or simply take from it. The only thing that will leave us fulfilled will be whether we tried to be the best possible versions of ourselves.
Invest in fixing yourself. Invest in piecing yourself back together, so that you don’t fall apart at the hands of the next thing that you take a chance on.
They don’t care about superficial things like what you wear, how you look or how much money you make. They care about your heart, the life it has experienced, and the stories it has to tell.
You’re picky. Maybe you’re really picky. There’s nothing wrong with that. There’s courage in learning to be alone while waiting for the right person.
