Let someone love you just the way you are – as flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are. To believe that you must hide all the parts of you that are broken, out of fear that someone else is incapable of loving what is less than perfect, is to believe that sunlight is incapable of entering a broken window and illuminating a dark room.

- Remember their birthday, every year.

- Befriend their Mom, she will tell you stories that no one else can.
- Order each other food at restaurants, just to try something new.
- Shower together, you may learn to love your body, by seeing the desire and passion in your partners eyes.
- Leave notes when you go out for the day, it will make you feel safe.
- Watch the Breakfast Club, and pump up your fist in the end, even if it only happens once.
- Care for each other when sick, soup is the easiest thing to make.
- Make chocolate covered strawberries in summer simply because you can.
- Go fishing with their Dad, and listen to what he has to say, even if he may have trouble saying it.

No-one else can save you.
People will try. They will give you as much advice, tools and inspiration they can muster – but if you’re not willing to help yourself, it will all be pointless.
The amazingly wonderful news?
You totally can save yourself.
You absolutely can own your power.
All it takes is commitment, patience, and willingness to seek what is good.
The even more amazingly wonderful news?
You can start being your own hero right now, this very second.
The power is yours.
Fun work? Is that even possible? What do you think?

Not all toxic people are cruel and uncaring. Some of them love us dearly. Many of them have good intentions. Most are toxic to our being simply because their needs and way of existing in the world force us to compromise ourselves and our happiness. They aren’t inherently bad people, but they aren’t the right people for us. And as hard as it is, we have to let them go. Life is hard enough without being around people who bring you down, and as much as you care, you can’t destroy yourself for the sake of someone else. You have to make your wellbeing a priority. Whether that means breaking up with someone you care about, loving a family member from a distance, letting go of a friend, or removing yourself from a situation that feels painful — you have every right to leave and create a safer space for yourself.
There’s something about getting advice from dogs that I like. I saved a bunch of these recently, so here’s a dump of most of them.
If it’s both terrifying and amazing then you should definitely pursue it.
I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
I don’t know what it is about this comic, but it has stood out to me since the moment I read it. It’s so simple. but at the same time it’s just very… I don’t even know the right word. It just makes me feel kind of quiet and makes me think.
This is kinda what it’s like in my head when I’m trying to figure out what I’m doing wrong, end up berating myself, and then realize I’m already doing the best I can with what I’ve got.

Being Single is okay.You don’t always need to be in a relationship or looking for one.
Be who you want.
Trust your kids.
Spend time with friends
Be careful what you wish for.
but wait there’s more
Don’t live vicariously through your children.
There’s more to you than how you look on the outside.
Your friends’ emotions and personalities are not something to be toyed with.
Fighting against assaulters and overcoming guilt-tripping.
Making new friends despite your differences.
