Don’t try to make your ugliness pretty. Don’t try to turn heartbreak into something picture-perfect. It sucks. And it’s okay that it sucks.
We are not prisoners of our pasts, but we are pioneers of our futures.
When you met him, you knew he was broken, but you saw past that and looked at all the good in his heart.
We cannot move forward until we honor exactly where are at. We have to feel this moment in order to leave it. Once we feel it, we can release it and we can move into our next moment. So let it hurt, but then let it heal.
Wait for the one who would rather listen to your deepest secrets than try to win everyone over by his noise.
It is human nature to reach the point of no return and recognise that the only way out of the sadness, the pain, the heartache is to move forward in a different direction from where you were moving before.
Disconnecting from pain inevitably disconnects us from other aspects of ourselves. After years of denial, we sometimes become strangers to our own selves.
Become aware of your thought patterns and make a conscious effort to change them.
Sometimes you will have to accept the fact that you will never know the real reason why they left you behind.
Healing does not happen when we leap into the arms of someone brand new; it happens when we leap into the creation of a brand new life. Healing happens when we let go of our plans for the future; it happens when we give up our need for certainty.
