I have been reminded of this time and time again as I struggle with an abusive past, and the extraordinary effort it takes to re-claim your life, yourself. I battle a soul, my own, that has been damaged. I will never be whole, but, I can still take what remains and face the sun, allowing that light to warm those broken pieces. Take those pieces which will never quite fit together, but can still form a beautiful image. Sometimes, it is the shards which create the more enduring beauty.
Never be afraid to venture out to sea... you may lose sight of the shore but the horizon is wide and the possiblilties are endless. A life without regret begins by drawing your anchor from the sand and let life's breeze carry your sails to the ends of the earth.
I hate this quote, mostly because it is referring to a relationship. If there is only one reason why you should stay, you need to leave. Do not settle for this person that makes you question your feelings towards them. Don't settle for the guy that gives you these other reason to not stay! Stop settling get the hell up and move the hell on
