I freaking love this quote. Because I have heard a lot of people speak about their past, and their mess they call their life. It always gave me the motivation to be better, to try harder, to be a better person. I want to think that its all okay, but.. is this what God wants?
when we make a change, it's so easy to interpret our unsettledness as unhappiness, and our unhappiness as a result of having made the wrong decision. our mental and emotional states fluctuate madly when we make big changes in our lives, and somedays we could tight-rope across manhattan, and other days we are too weary to clean our teeth, this is normal. this is natural. this is change. - jeanette winterson
