Get your fill to eat, but always keep that hunger. I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean. Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens. Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance. And if you get the choice to sit it out or dance, Dance.
If someone is nasty or treats you poorly, maybe you need to ask yourself, "What did I do to this person in order for them to treat me this way? Did I abuse them in some way? Was I myself nasty first? Did I take them for granted?
