1. Everything is only temporary.
This is important when I’m going through a particularly heavy chronic pain patch. I tell myself this when I wake up feeling worthless.
I think this every time someone says something harsh, or seems ungrateful.
People are temporary, settings are temporary… everything is temporary.
2. We only live once.
Maybe this seems similar to my last one, but I try to live every day to the fullest.
I can’t let life slip through my fingers and let it wash by me.
3. You are always number 1.
I’m tired of putting people before myself.
I have a new way of cutting poisonous people out, and I’m not afraid to use it.
4. “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
― Oscar Wilde
I spent far too long trying to be something I wasn’t.
5. No one has the right to break your heart.
Your heart is the one thing which is pretty delicate.
No one has the right to break it, smash it or trample over it.
They’re not really worth your time.
6. Being alone and being lonely are two very different things.
7. Understand the world around you.
I try to read anything I can. I ask questions about where I am.
I want to understand what the world is and everything that is in i.
8. You do not need to follow the crowd.
It is okay to love something that no one else does.
It is okay to hate something that everyone loves.
9. Don’t dwell on the past.
The past is the past, and you can’t change what has happened.
Though you can shape your future and it starts today.
10. You are beautiful.
