Who we think we are is often who we were many years ago.
Change can arrive in an instant, or slowly settle around you over the years. One day things are just different.
Don't look to them to make it right, which is another way of saying, "to set you free." They never had that much power. You are the one with the power.
Whatever they did or said, you'll do worse, if you don't make the choice right now to do better — for yourself.
No insult ever laid so heavily on your heart than the one you believed.
At all times in life you are being tested. Not just in the obvious times of challenge, but mostly in your quiet moments. Quietness is where the tragedies happen. The real hurting happens in private. Nothing is so cruel as solitary sadness.
Don't be so hard on yourself. Your flaws you hate the most are exactly what the right people will adore about you.
