When we act "crazy" in relationships, it's beause we're in pain. Wounded people create drama to avoid themselves. buff.ly/2MpuNEJ
Each day I am thankful for nights that turned into mornings, friends that turned into family, dreams that turned into reality, and likes that turned into love.
You can feel fortunate & disappointed, grateful but dissatisfied too. Accepting the darkness doesn’t mean you don’t appreciate the light. It means you’re giving yourself permission to acknowledge & feel it all. The best way to deal with dissatisfaction: buff.ly/3VkBESh

Your impact on other people is bigger than you think. Someone still giggles when they think of that funny thing you said. Someone still smiles when they think of the compliment you gave them. Someone silently admires you. The advice you give has made a difference for people...

People come in & out of our lives constantly. Some are blessings, some lessons. Some stay, some leave. But sometimes we're too attached to let go. We think about them constantly, cry over them, feel addicted to them. Here's how to release your attachment: buff.ly/3kE6IJW
You have permission to rest. You are not responsible for fixing everything that is broken. You do not have to try to make everyone happy. For now, take time for you. It's time to replenish.
You don't have to fix everyone's problems or accept things that aren't okay with you. You don't have to say yes when you want to say no. And you can communicate your needs without being cold/harsh. How to set boundaries when it's hard: buff.ly/3nGuo2B
"We’ve been infected with the idea that love is an emotion only felt between two people. But love is universal. An energy. A contagious force. A gift. To offer money to a homeless person is to love. To save a worm from the sun is love. To smile at a stranger is love..."

May your week be filled with good thoughts, kind people, happy moments, and unexpected blessings.

"No more making yourself smaller to fit in. No more hiding the best colors of you. Stand out. Make waves. Try things. Be you. The world doesn’t need the muted version of you, it needs the truest and most authentic you." ~Nikki Banas
"If you’re tired, you need rest. If you’re drained, you need a break. If you’re hurting, you need your own compassion. And nothing will change for the better until you give yourself what you need." Lori Deschene 5 things to stop doing if you're struggling buff.ly/2UiPcRR

Most of the things we worry about never happen, but it’s hard to relax when you were programmed to be hypervigilant growing up to protect yourself from getting hurt. Here are 10 ways to calm your nervous system when anxiety takes over: buff.ly/3Edyjhz
"One of the most powerful truths we can offer our children is the knowledge that we're all learning. None of us have arrived; we all have room to grow. This frees our kids from expecting perfection from themselves—or anyone else—because they know that life is a journey."
"We seek what's familiar in relationships, even at the expense of our safety/happiness. What is familiar is the love we received from our parents. If we want to have better relationships, we need to heal our past.” 3 things I learned from being cheated on buff.ly/3tG9HYS
If your path demands you to walk through hell, walk in as if you own the place.⠀
"Because you grew up on high alert anticipating abuse, you question/analyze others’ actions... You want to trust others, but don’t know how. You want to be loved, but you were never taught what love feels like." What's it's like for adults abused as kids: buff.ly/2RDCvkL
The biggest lesson I’ve learned this year is not to force anything; conversations, friendships, relationships, attention, love. Anything forced is just not worth fighting for. Whatever flows, flows, what crashes, crashes. It is what it is.⠀
We often want to get to the future fast, so we pull into the left lane and zoom past everything to get there, but we end up missing out what’s right in front of us. Slow down, stay in the right lane, and let yourself enjoy your life. A great reminder: buff.ly/3TI0BW7
"Grief, I’ve learned, is really just love. It’s all the love you want to give, but cannot. All that unspent love gathers up in the corners of your eyes, the lump in your throat, and in that hollow part of your chest. Grief is just love with no place to go." ~Jamie Anderson⠀
"That was why we struggled to fit in—we chose things in all areas of our lives that were never right for us. So the problem wasn’t us, it was where we trying to force ourselves to fit." A powerful post for anyone who feels like they never fit in anywhere: buff.ly/341RAzx

"Don't make yourself small for anyone. Be the awkward, funny, intelligent, beautiful little weirdo that you are. Don't hold back. Weird it out.” ~Unknown
