~ Forgiveness is easy when love is strong.
~ The only way to continue finding yourself is to continue losing yourself.
~ The people who truly love and care about you won't see you any differently when you have a meltdown, pitch a fit, say things you don't mean, or otherwise behave imperfectly. You don't have to apologize for or justify your need to vent and express your feelings, no matter how crazy or dramatic you sound in the heat of the moment. It's better to rant and rave and make an ass of yourself than sit in a room by yourself and let everything build up until you explode and do something stupid.
~ You deserve to receive, feel and experience genuine love, no matter how you go about getting it.
~ There is always a reason to stay alive.
~ I like to know where I stand with people. I don't have time for up and down, push and pull, or give and take relationships. If I constantly have to question how someone feels about me or whether or not they want me in their life, I'm better off without them.
~ When you have nothing, you have nothing to lose.
~ A breakdown can be a breakthrough, depending on how you choose to look at it.
~ When you're lacking strength, all you have to do is ask for it. From God. From your best friend. From your dog. From your grandmother. From your significant other. It's okay to say, "Today is not a good day. I feel weak. I don't feel like enough." Strength can be provided through a hug, some encouraging words, or simply a walk in the park. You don't need to leap over obstacles fearlessly and effortlessly. You just need to have the initiative to put one foot in front of the other.
~ If you're doing it for the money, you're doing it wrong. Yes, money is important. No, money is not everything.
~ If you can only find one thing worth living for, keep looking.
~ Never stop setting goals, even if the best goal you can come up with is, "Get out of bed."
