~ You are so much stronger than you think. When you're having the worst day, week or month ever, it's tempting to want to take a bath and never come out or pack up all of your belongings and leave everything you've ever known, but I promise you that whatever you're going through is not the end of the world. If you're like me and can easily go from normal functioning human to complete emotional wreck in the span of about two minutes, remember that everything is temporary. You have to hang in there.
~ Revenge doesn't hurt other people as much as it hurts you.
~ Make sure you're giving adequate attention to everything that's important in your life. Don't lean too far in one direction and not far enough in another. Balance is everything.
~ Other people are not better than you. Other people are just other people. Nothing more, nothing less.
~ When people talk about the benefits of unplugging from technology and truly being with people and enjoying nature, they're not lying. Put your cell phone away, and go play outside with your favorite person.
~ Anger is pain in disguise.
~ To me, occasional crying is like the occasional car wash. You just need a good cry every now and then. Maybe I'm just weird like that. Whatever.
~ Ask, and you shall receive. Sometimes.
~ Bashing other people on the Internet (or anywhere else) is not a good use of time. And it doesn't make you look cool either.
~ Creativity cannot be forced. Mental breaks are very necessary.
