Here’s the thing about people with good hearts. They give you excuses when you don’t explain yourself. They accept apologies you don’t give. They see the best in you when you don’t need them to. At your worst, they lift you up, even if it means putting their priorities aside. The word “busy” does not
You’re going to come in contact with an awful lot of people who are at their absolute breaking point this week. Friends, family, co-workers, teachers, retail workers, nurses. Some will let you in on their struggles, but the majority will nod and carry on and pretend everything is okay. People are overrun with to-do lists.

Movies make romantic love look so easy to manage. You fall in love, go on several dates, the next thing you know you’re already engaged, a few moments later you’re married and living happily ever after with the man of your dreams. But in reality, finding the person you want to spend the rest of
Sometimes I feel like I’m not quite cool enough. Sometimes I feel like I’m just not popular enough. Sometimes I feel like I don’t fit in the same way other people do. Sometimes I feel like there is a group who maybe doesn’t really want me there. Sometimes I wonder why I wasn’t invited. Sometimes
