Good relationships make you feel powerful, but bad relationships make you feel powerless. The wrong person will suck you dry long before you even start your day, but the right person will help keep you replenished in love from sunrise to sunset. Different people bring out different things in you. Be with someone who brings out the very best in you. If you are waking up every other day with a headache from the one you are with, it might be time to reevaluate that person in your life. Being happy is still a choice that you have the power to make.

I refuse to stay in something that isn’t real. I’m through pretending. I’m through fighting alone. You’re only real when it benefits you. You only care when I walk away. The only time you make me feel perfect is when I am hiding my imperfections. I DESERVE BETTER. My heart deserves a love that comforts my insecurities. Life is too short to settle. I didn’t change… I just opened my eyes. — Trent Shelton
Your Mother is always with you. She’s the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street, she’s the smell of certain foods you remember, flowers you pick, the fragrance of life itself. She’s the cool hand on your brow when you’re not feeling well, she’s your breath in the air on a cold winter’s day. She is the sound of the rain that lulls you to sleep, the colors of a rainbow, she is Christmas morning. Your mother lives inside your laughter. She’s the place you came from, your first home, and she’s the map you follow with every step you take. She’s your first love, your first friend, even your first enemy, but nothing on earth can separate you . Not time, not space…not even death. — Unknown
This goes out to all of the people who have been broken, but have been strong enough to let go. For the people who have hurt so badly that they felt that they could never love again, but kept their head up. For the people who learn from their mistakes and never stop moving forward, even when they take two steps back. For the people that wish loneliness wasn’t a part of them, but put up with it anyhow. For the people that are okay with taking up all of the room in the bed, even if it sometimes feels a little empty. For the people who wake up in the morning with no missed calls, but smile anyway.
For the people who periodically miss the past, but are so much more excited for the future. For the people that have wounds still healing. For the people that have so much tied to their past relationship, but break those chains to start fresh. For the people that want to look back so badly, but focus on the road ahead. For the people that pick up the phone and are tempted to call, but keep their dignity intact instead. For the people that never wanted to let go, but had to. For the people that still believe in love even after all of the hurt their heart has endured. For all the people that gave up, not because they were weak, but because most times, it’s better just to let go. We’ll all get our happy ending someday. — Unknown
You could have grown cold, but you grew courageous instead. You could have given up, but you kept on going. You could have seen obstacles, but you called them adventures. You could have called them weeds, but instead you called them wildflowers. You could have died a caterpillar, but you fought on to be a butterfly. You could have denied yourself goodness, but instead you chose to show yourself some self-love. You could have defined yourself by the dark days, but instead through them you realized your light. — S.C Lourie
