1. When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares. – Henri J.M. Nouwen, The Road to Daybreak: A Spiritual Journey

2. Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. – Leo Buscaglia

3. You’re not alone. Just stay fighting. No matter what anyone says, don’t take anyones bullshit. Because you’re better than them. You’re beautiful. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re not good enough. You’re good enough; You are too good. Love your family with all your heart and listen to it. You are gorgeous, whether you’re a size 4 or 14. It doesn’t matter what you look like on the outside, as long as you’re a good person; As long as you respect others. I know it’s been told hundreds of times before, but it’s true. You know, sometimes you have to kind of die inside in order to rise from your own ashes and believe in yourself and love yourself to become a new person. Someone doesn’t like you? Fuck it. Having a bad day? Fuck it. Didn’t get that job, or that grade, or that promotion you wanted? Fuck it. Fighting with your lover? Fuck it. Feel fat today? Fuck it. Losing control of everything and everyone? Fuck it. What matters now won’t matter soon; The truly important thing is that you are alive, and that you have the capacity to do absolutely anything with this beautiful, crazy coincidence of being on this earth. Just stick your middle fingers in the air and think, “Damn, I have it good”. Stay beautiful. – Gerard Way

4. People need to be encouraged. People need to be reminded of how wonderful they are. People need to be believed in—told that they are brave and smart and capable of accomplishing all the dreams they dream and more. Remind each other of this. – S. S

5. “Maybe you’re trying too hard or not hard enough. Maybe you’re doing the right thing in the wrong place. Or the wrong thing in the right place. Maybe you’re loving the one who doesn’t deserve it. Or not loving the one who does. Whether you’re smiling or crying, you’re alive, even if you feel it or not. You’re gonna make choices that will lead you to sadness and happiness, but the only way you’ll know the difference between the two is if you try.” – Author Unknown

Every one said we couldn’t break it,
every one said there was no way to shake it,
but we did.
