"Tell everyone you know: “My happiness depends on me, so you’re off the hook.” And then demonstrate it. Be happy, no matter what they’re doing. Practice feeling good, no matter what. And before you know it, you will not give anyone else responsibility for the way you feel-and then, you’ll love them all. Because the only reason you don’t love them, is because you’re using them as your excuse to not feel good."
"Often people attempt to live their lives backwards; they try to have more things, or more money in order to do more of what they want so they will be happier. They way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do in order to have what you want."
Never forget that the words, feelings, expressions, thoughts and whatever else you decide to share as a part of you is open for all to see. Are you ready to be that vulnerable, that transparent and that real? Because if you can’t be real with yourself, then how the hell are you going to be real with the world?
And World, you should learn and try to be as forgiving, compassionate, accepting and caring as you can. I’m pouring my heart and soul out to you, don’t shatter it.
