All you can do in life is to be who you are. Some people will love you for you. Most will love you for what you can do for them, and some won’t like you at all.
~Rita Mae Brown
The most confused we ever get is when we’re trying to convince our heads of something our heart knows is a lie.
~Karen Marie Moning
Being a good person does not protect you from bad people.
Empty hearts actually weigh the heaviest.
The world is full of traitors.
Your first kiss isn’t as important as your last. The math test really didn’t matter. The pie really did. The stuff you’re good at and the stuff you’re bad at are just different parts of the same thing. Same goes for the people you love and the people you don’t—and the people who love you and the people who don’t. The only thing that mattered was that you cared about a few people. Life is really, really short.
Memories warm you up in the inside. But they also tear you apart.
Growth is painful. Change is painful. But nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong.
– Mandy Hale
