    “A heart given freely is the most vulnerable

    and selfless thing one can offer another human being. It can be as fragile and needy as a newly born infant, or as solid and self-supporting as a granite pillar, yet it is the hands of the recipient that determines its ultimate fate.” ― Mark W Boyer

    I had an extremely intelligent woman on EP send

    this in a private message to me. I believe she has posted it elsewhere in one of her own stories, but I simply had to share it here, too. If you see this, please know I found it extremely profound and have read and reread it so many times I've nearly committed it to memory...

    "Remain calm in the face of uncertainty.

    " This is something my dad often says. I remind myself, when I start feeling fearful or anxious that "it's impossible to be relaxed and anxious at the same time." Thinking this thought, and consciously trying to relax, has really helped me when I'm feeling afraid.

    Quote About Love 8

    Let go of the things that can no longer be fixed. If you force yourself to try and put them back, things will only get worse. Holding on is being brave, but sometimes moving on makes you even tougher.
