The most powerful lesson I’ve learned in life is to never act like someone you’re not.. Not only will people know that you’re being fake, but you’re also fooling yourself by thinking that the real you isn’t good enough.
Never chase after love or affection or attention.
If it isn’t given freely by another, it isn’t worth having.
I’m not perfect.. I make a lot of mistakes.
But I really appreciate those who stand by me knowing who I really am.
It was the first time I was ever in love, and I learned a lot.
Before that I’d never even thought about killing myself.
If you stay, stay forever.. If you want to go, go today.
When you speak, make sure you mean what you say.
Time doesn’t heal anything..
It just teaches us how to live with the pain.
Be like the seeds of beautiful flowers and plant love everywhere you go.
(Eileen Hutchison, 1926-2008)
It’s very difficult to forget those who gave you so much to remember.
Remembering the people that meant so much to you.
You think about the things they did and the things they said.
It feels so good, and hurts so bad all at once.
Desire is the kind of thing that eats you and leaves you starving.
The bad news is.. You cannot make others like you or love you or understand you.
The good news is.. It doesn’t matter.
Just because I laugh a lot doesn’t mean I don’t have problems.
Just because I smile a lot doesn’t mean I’m happy all the time.
If someone you meet tries to convince you that they’re perfect..
That is the perfect sign that it’s time to turn around and walk away.
Perhaps I’m scared because you mean so much to me..
I think about you all the time.. I need you.
Love cures people, both the ones who give it and the ones who receive it.
(Karl A. Menninger)
The universe will never, ever, create another exact copy of you.
You are unique, you are special.
Go out dancing and celebrate.
Ageing is an extraordinary process where you become the person you always should have been.
(David Bowie, 1947-2016)
Some say no one ever died of a broken heart..
But when you’re suffering from one, it can feel that way.
A woman without her man is nothing.
A woman, without her man, is nothing.
A woman, without her, man is nothing.
Love isn’t soft, like those poets say.
Love has teeth which bite and the wounds never close.
Sometimes, crying is the only way you can speak when your mouth is unable to explain how broken your heart is.
They say you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone.
Truth is, you knew what you had..
You just never thought you’d lose it.
Loving you was like going to war.. I never came back the same.
You make me happy.. You make me laugh.
You’re smart.. You’re a little crazy.
When you smile it makes me smile.
I think I love you.
Love often arrives like a dream, and departs like a nightmare.
It takes more than just a good looking body.
You’ve got to have the heart and soul to go with it.
True love doesn’t care about looks or body shape..
True love is concerned with what’s in the heart.
Be with someone who is proud to have you.
Ask the child why it is born.
Ask the flower why it blossoms.
Ask the sun why it shines.
I love you because I must love you.
(George Upton, 1834-1919)
I want to be your favourite hello and your hardest goodbye.
If nothing saves us from death, at least love should save us from life.
Life ends when you stop dreaming.
Hope ends when you stop believing.
Friendship ends when you stop sharing.
Love ends when you stop caring.
Rise above the storm and you will find the sunshine.
