Life Lessons: "The Reason People Find It So Hard To Be Happy Is That They Always See The Past Better Than It Was, The Present Worse Than It Is, and The Future Less Resolved Than It Will Be." ~ Marcel Pagnol

So, true.

I do this way too much!

"Never be afraid to fall apart because it is an opportunity to rebuild yourself the way you wish you had been all along." ~Rae Smith

Winston Churchill quote . . . I've been okay with knowing not everybody likes me ever since I came to the realisation that everyone is entitled to their own opinion. By confirming this in others it confirms and validates that my own opinions are equally valid . . . and I don't permit others to run rough-shod over me. WOW. Need to remember this!!

Controllers, abusers and manipulative people don't question themselves. They don't ask themselves if the problem is them. They always say the problem is someone else. Be healthy, giving people the benefit of the doubt is no longer part of our ever growing, ever changing society. You can love someone with caution. Doesn't mean you love them less..

remember...

One of my absolute most favorite quotes. One of these days it will get me all the way through my toughest obstacles..

lol.....I wish I thought like this, when I was younger......BUH-BYE

adore this

Forgiving yourself.....Everyone makes mistakes in life, but that doesn't mean they have to pay for them the rest of their life. Sometimes GOOD people make BAD choices. It doesn't mean they're bad...it means they're HUMAN!

& What a Beautiful Life it is!

Yep.

true true

Amen!

LOVE this. I can think of some I love very much but their expectation is so grandiose and demanding and it should really just come down to accepting each other just the way we are and loving each other just the way we are and quit trying to change people to fit our own needs. Cuz that isn't love it's called insecurity.

So true ....

Sometimes your heart needs more time to accept what your mind already knows.

Generally, people like to bring up your past, when your present and future appears to be better than theirs.

I think part of the reason why we hold on to something so tight is because we fear something so great won't happen twice.
