There are things that make me feel better. If I tell myself them enough, I feel like a new person.
1. everything happens for a reason. we may never know why until further down the line, or even during this lifetime. but there is a reason.
2. you can't control other people.
3. sometimes you have to love people from a distance to maintain your own quality of life.
4. everything passes.
5. most of the time it is we who make ourselves crazy, or allow others to affect us to that level (see #3)
6. there is always a way out and a solution.
7. you are allowed to change your mind at any time.
8. don't just accept yourself the way you are, relish in it, embrace and use it.
9. we all have our own purposes and places in life, I don't have to or want to do yours, you don't have to or want to do mine.
10. when things get too overwhelming it always helps to give them to God, as many times as you need to each day.
11. life...is short, find your happiness, and your peaceful place and don't ever let anyone take that from you.
that's it for now.
