The Latest

Sometimes it is the smallest thing that saves us: the weather growing cold, a child’s smile, and a cup of excellent coffee.

The path isn’t a straight line; it’s a spiral. You continually come back to things you thought you understood and see deeper truths.

Loneliness does not come from having no people around, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to oneself, or from holding certain views others find inadmissible.

Sometimes, the key to making progress is to recognize how to take that very first step. Then you start your journey. You hope for the best and you stick with it, day in and day out. Even if you’re tired, even if you want to walk away. You don’t. Because you are a pioneer. But nobody ever said it’d be easy.

There are some things about myself that I can’t explain to anyone. There are some things I don’t understand at all. I can’t tell what I think about things or what I’m after. I don’t know what my strengths are or what I’m supposed to do about them. But if I start thinking about these things in too much detail, the whole thing gets scary. And if I get scared, I can only think about myself. I become really self-centered, and without meaning to, I hurt people. So I’m not such a wonderful human being.

Defensiveness is usually someone silently screaming that they need you to value and respect them in disguise. When you look for deeper meanings behind someone’s pain you can then begin to heal not only yourself but others.

I do not trust people who don’t love themselves and yet tell me, ‘I love you.’ There is an African saying which is: Be careful when a naked person offers you a shirt.

Sometimes we get sad about things and we don’t like to tell other people that we are sad about them. We like to keep it a secret. Or sometimes, we are sad but we really don’t know why we are sad, so we say we aren’t sad but we really are.

1. Know that you are still blooming, and this is okay.

2. Write handwritten love notes to the parts of yourself you hate.

3. Find the comfort in holding your own hand.

4. Remember, even clouds cry sometimes.

5. Date yourself. Get to know yourself again.

6. Learn how to be alone without feeling lonely.

7. Do something that scares you every day, no matter how small. Watch your life change.

8. Stop wishing for a vacation and make your life into something you don’t wish to escape from.

9. Recognize that the best artists color outside the lines. You have the same freedom in your life. Break conventions.

10. Go to the florist on the corner and buy yourself some flowers. Spoil yourself. You deserve it.

11. Throw out your premeditated list of qualities for your perfect mate. That special person is not a recipe or equation. Humans are more than that.

12. Share your testimony. Our story is meant to be heard. Find your voice.

13. Wish to be more like rain than snow. Snow is frigid and hardens. Rain is vulnerable and soft.

14. Look at your veins. They are roots, and your limbs are branches. Your body is a strong tree. Don’t you dare cut it down.

15. Strive to have the humility as the sun. It shines brilliantly every day without needing anyone to notice.

16. Flip through old photos and reminisce about the past, but do not live there. Nothing new happens there.

17. Dust off the fingerprints of any past lover left on your skin. You belong only to yourself.

18. Become the person you’d like to fall in love with.

19. Loving yourself again will be like putting on eyeglasses. The blur will fade and you will see yourself for what you truly are: beautiful.

Sometimes we worry about sharing our own thoughts worried how others will react and if we are going to burden them or not.
