    It's sad that we as a society think

    that HATE is a strong word, but we don't think the same for LOVE.

    The truth is, unless you let go,

    unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot move forward.-Steve Maraboli

    Read some biographies

    and tell me you don't attach yourself to someone's experience. :)

    Never speak from a place of hate,

    jealousy, anger or insecurity. Evaluate your words before you let them out, sometimes it's best to be quiet.

    The thing people forget is how good it can feel

    when you finally set secrets free. Whether good or bad, at least they are out in the open...like it or not. Once your secrets are out in the open, you don't have to hide behind them anymore. The problem with secrets is, even when you think you're in control, you're not.

    You fall, you rise, you make mistakes,

    you live, you learn. You are human, not perfect. You have been hurt, but you are alive. Think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive, to breathe, to think, to enjoy, and to chase the things you love. Sometimes there is sadness in our journey, but there is also a lot of...

    I believe that everything happens

    for a reason. People change so you can learn to let go, things go wrong so you can appreciate them when they go right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

    poison doesn't always come in bottles. And it isn?t always marked with the skull and crossbones of danger. Poison can take the form of words and phrases and acts: the venom of racial and religious hatred. Here in the United States, perhaps more than ever before, we must learn to...

    Anxiety weighs down the heart,

    Words leave their mark far longer

    than any physical pain can. Even if you are left with physical scars, you learn to accept them as part of you. The pain dissipates, the scars fade, and they become a reminder of something that happened to you once. Words; they linger, they reappear, they never quite leave you...

    I'm not a big fan of the average social media

    experience. 90% of what's shared is reblogged memes, GIF's and videos or mundane pictures of day to day life. Even sharing quotes always seem to come in clip art form. The internet gave us all a voice only to show us how little we have to say. When someone at least goes...

    I don't know why we hang onto something we know

    we're better off letting go of. It's like we're scared to lose what we don't really have. Some of us say we'd rather have something than absolutely nothing, but the truth is, to have it halfway is harder than not having it all. ~ Meredith Grey

    We live and breathe words.

    Words can illustrate,

    they can obfuscate. Words can immortalize or demonize.Words can caress with touches as soft as a feather, give comfort to a teary eye... or they can be as harsh and visceral as a jagged rusty blade, elicit anger and rage, make a man a feral beast.Words can be fiery, fast and hot...

    Words travel far more

    than we can ever reach across hearts and live longer than we can ever live on earth and as such, should be spoken with a lot of goodness and care in them.
