“We need people in our lives with whom we can be as open as possible.
To have real conversations with people may seem like such a simple, obvious suggestion,
but it involves courage and risk.”

“Continue to share your heart with people even if it’s been broken.”

“Breathe. You’re going to be okay. Breathe and remember that you’ve been in this place before.
You’ve been this uncomfortable and anxious and scared, and you’ve survived.
Breathe and know that you can survive this too. These feelings can’t break you.
They’re painful and debilitating, but you can sit with them and eventually, they will pass.
Maybe not immediately, but sometime soon, they are going to fade and when they do,
you’ll look back at this moment and laugh for having doubted your resilience.
I know it feels unbearable right now, but keep breathing, again and again. 
This will pass. I promise it will pass.”

“Pain, you just have to ride it out, hope it goes away on its own, hope the wound that caused it heals. There are no solutions, no easy answers, you just breath deep and wait for it to subside. Most of the time pain can be managed but sometimes the pain gets you where you least expect it. Hits way below the belt and doesn’t let up. Pain, you just have to fight through, because the truth is you can’t outrun it and life always makes more.”

"You're cheating yourself out of today.
Today is calling to you, trying to get your attention,
but you're stuck on tomorrow, and today trickles away like water down a drain.
You wake up the next morning and that today that you wasted is gone forever.
It's now yesterday.
Some of those moments may have had wonderful things in store for you,
but now you'll never know."

"Hey. It's okay if you didn't do your best today.
You are trying, that's the most anyone can ever ask of you.
Things will be better tomorrow. Chin up."
