I pretty much live by this quote. Went through a break up. This got me through a lot though. Learn to accept things the way they are, some things you just can't change no matter how bad you want to. Everything happens for a reason.
It's never going to be perfect. It's life. So be content, stay strong, count your blessings, love yourself & others, be kind & giving (remember it's the smallest of things that mean the most) forgive yourself & those that hurt you and LIVE.
This is what our Southern mothers taught us to do. If anyone is being ugly to you, you DO NOT stoop to their level. You "Kill them with kindness". By the way, that doesn't always work. But, it makes your Mama happy.
