Find someone who isn’t afraid to admit that they miss you,
who knows you aren’t perfect but treats you as if you are,
who’s biggest fear is losing you,
who says ‘I love you’ and means it with all their heart,
someone who believes leaving and giving up isn’t an option.

Hiding your hurt only intensifies it. Problems grow in the dark and only become bigger and bigger. But when exposed to the light of truth, they shrink. You are only as sick as your secrets. So take off your mask, stop pretending you’re perfect and walk into freedom.

You only have so much emotional energy each day. Don’t fight battles that don’t matter.

When it comes to being gentle, start with yourself. Don’t get upset with your imperfections. Being disappointed by failure is understandable, but it shouldn’t turn into bitterness or spite directed at yourself.

Those who love you are not fooled by mistakes you have made, or by dark images you hold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly; your wholeness when you are broken; your innocence when you feel guilty; and your purpose when you are confused.

What’s broken can be mended. What’s hurt can be healed. No matter how dark it gets, the sun’s gonna rise again.

You can love them, forgive them, want good things for them… But still move on without them.

There’s always a message in the way a person treats you. Listen.

Never waste your time trying to explain who you are to people who are committed to misunderstanding you.

Never apologize for how you feel. No one can control how they feel. The sun doesn’t apologize for being the sun. The rain doesn’t say sorry for falling. Feelings just are.
