*I know it’s a little late to be posting this since I’ll be 31 in August. but Better late than never! *

  1. Sometimes you’ve got to learn to walk away from everything you thought you knew in order to grow. 
  2. It’s better to learn to feel your emotions no matter how painful it is instead of always stuffing them down.
  3. The sun will always shine after the every storm. 
  4. Everything will eventually be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, then it’s not the end.
  5. If you want people to respect you and your opinions then you have to respect them and their opinions.
  6. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.
  7. You have to pick and choose your battles. Not everything needs to always be a fight.
  8. Watch how you treat people because you never know what someone else is dealing with.

  19. Crying is not a sign of weakness.
  20. If you don’t like yourself, find one tiny thing that you do like about yourself and repeat it to yourself over and over again until you start to believe it and then move onto the next things.
  21. Pets can show you what true love really is.
  22. Don’t judge a person for their past because everyone has one and has done things that they are not proud of.
  23. Everyone is worthy or love.
  24. You shouldn’t tell everyone, every little detail of your life.
