Explain your anger, don’t express it, and you will immediately open the door to solutions instead of arguments.

Be soft, do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.

Let your past make you better, not bitter.

Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day.

Every time you get upset at something, ask yourself if you were to die tomorrow, was it worth wasting your time being angry.

Your faith can move mountains, and your doubts can create them.

Everything you’ve ever wanted is on the other side of fear.
