Don’t believe every worried thought you have. Worried thoughts are notoriously inaccurate.

Don’t give up on something you really want. It’s difficult to wait, but even worse to have to live with regret.

Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart.

I loved you in a way I wished someone would love me.

A secret to happiness is letting every situation be what it is instead of what you think it should be, and then making the best of it.

It’s OK to live a life that others don’t understand.

The trick is to care about everyone while not caring what they think.

You can’t just give up on someone because the situation’s not ideal. Great relationships aren’t great because they have no problems. They’re great because both people care enough about the other person to find a way to make it work.

Being raised in an unstable household makes you understand that the world doesn’t exist to accommodate you, which… is something a lot of people struggle to understand well into their adulthood. It makes you realize how quickly a situation can shift, how danger really is everywhere. But crises when they occur, do not catch you off guard; you have never believed you lived under a shelter of some essential benevolence. And an unstable childhood makes you appreciate calmness and not crave excitement.

Maybe it won’t work out. But maybe seeing if it does will be the best adventure ever.
