Life has taught me that respect, caring and love must be shared, for it's only through sharing that friendships are born.
You think because he doesn't love you that you are worthless. You think that because he doesn't want you anymore that he is right -- that his judgement and opinion of you are correct. If he throws you out, then you are garbage. You think he belongs to you because you want to belong to him. Don't. It's a bad word, 'belong.' Especially when you put it with somebody you love. Love shouldn't be like that. Did you ever see the way the clouds love a mountain? They circle all around it; sometimes you can't even see the mountain for the clouds. But you know what? You go up top and what do you see? His head. The clouds never cover the head. His head pokes through, beacuse the clouds let him; they don't wrap him up. They let him keep his head up high, free, with nothing to hide him or bind him. You can't own a human being. You can't lose what you don't own. Suppose you did own him. Could you really love somebody who was absolutely nobody without you? You really want somebody like that? Somebody who falls apart when you walk out the door? You don't, do you? And neither does he. You're turning over your whole life to him. Your whole life, girl. And if it means so little to you that you can just give it away, hand it to him, then why should it mean any more to him? He can't value you more than you value yourself.
I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death.
You're just like god made you, so embrace that, love on that. I know how hard it is some mornings to look in the mirror at all your imperfections and be stoked about what you see, let alone feel loved, but how about today we try? I mean, what the heck, if god sent you here looking that way I’ve got a real good feeling. We are who we are for a pretty good reason. Know today that you are adored, god adores you, and if you don't believe that, it's cool, you don't have to. It does not mean at all that you're still not adored.
To your enemy, give forgiveness. To an opponent, give tolerance. To a friend, give your heart. To a customer, give service. To all, give charity. To every child, give a good example. To yourself, give respect.
Time is tricky. You have whole months, even years, when nothing changes a speck. When you don't go anywhere or do anything or think one new thought. And then you can get hit with a day or an hour, or half a second, when so much happens, it's almost like you are born all over again into somebrand-new person you for damn sure never expected to meet.
The key to change is to let go of fear.
Because, even if it breaks your heart to be just friends, if you really care about someone, you'll take the hit.
The best lyrics are the ones that give you goosebumps, or make you cry in public, or help you realize the answers.
What you see and hear depends a good deal on where you are standing; it also depends on what kind of a person you are.
A strong woman takes risks, takes compliments, and tries not to take herself too seriously.
I still believe that all you need is love.
I want so badly to tell you how I feel, but I'm scared that after I pour out all my feelings for you, you're just going to stare at me like the words don't mean a thing.
