Stop worrying if other people like you. Do you like you?
2. I crave space. It charges my batteries. It helps me breathe. Being around people can be so exhausting, because most of them love to take and barely know how to give. Except for a rare few.
3. You are not fat. You have fat. You also have fingernails but you are not fingernails.
4. Always say “my peace is more important” when you find yourself reacting to something that doesn’t deserve your energy. Prioritize your inner wellness and cultivate an active mindset of peace by conciously deciding that you’ll elevate higher than any situation that arises.
5. Have the courage to be disliked.
6. Staying positive does not mean that things will turn out okay. Rather, it is knowing that you will be okay no matter how things go out.
7. Find your equal, not your whole.
8. One of the most challenging things I’ve had to learn is that healing must be intentional. There is no one golden day that comes and saves you from all your misery. Healing is a practice. You have to decide that it’s what you want to do and actively do it. You have to make a habit out of it. Once I learned that, I only looked back to see how far I came.
9. A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.
10. Be the kind of person who isn’t afraid to ask someone if they are okay twice if they say they are, but look like they aren’t. Be the kind of person who smiles at people even if they don’t smile back. Be the kind of person you wished for when no one was there for you. Be the kind of person who is brave enough to stand alone in a crowd for what is right. Be that person because we need more people like that in the world. Be that person because people like that are rarer than the rarest diamonds and gold.
