I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances.
Love doesn’t “make” you do stupid things. You’re an active participant in your misery. If your self-esteem is so low that you feel you deserve to be mistreated, be my guest. Good men and women shouldn’t have to fight an uphill battle to convince YOU that YOU deserve more. Do us all a favor: don’t be another hurt person creating other hurt people. The world is miserable enough without your contributions.
To hold someone’s hand through the darkness of these hard years with hard decisions, getting to know them more and more, little by little and finally coming out on the other side, not having to say anything because you both already appreciate one another more than words and understand.. nothing could be a greater love…
Did you say it? I love you. I don’t ever wanna live without you. You changed my life. Did you say it? Make a plan, set a goal, work toward it. But every now and then, look around. Drink it in. ‘Cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow.
