“The most fundamental aggression to ourselves, the most fundamental harm we can do to ourselves, is to remain ignorant by not having the courage and the respect to look at ourselves honestly and gently.”
“I think we have created this stigma of confusion around relationships which makes those who prefer to be direct and honest feel like we're over thinking, when in fact, we're just uncomfortable in a place that requires that we act slyly. All this stuff about playing games and whatnot is ridiculous. Be honest with yourself, be honest with others, and go after what you want. No matter what you do or say, what is written for you will be yours and what isn't won't be. So go, take a leap of faith, put yourself out there, and don't be afraid to hear no, because your provision has already been written.”
Take chances, take a lot of them. Because honestly, no matter where you end up and with whom, it always ends up just the way it should be. Your mistakes make you who you are. You learn and grow with each choice you make. Everything is worth it. Say how you feel, always.
