life advice quotes

Don’t give pieces of your soul to someone who can’t even seem to give it the littlest bit of notice. Because one day, you’ll find yourself feeling emptier than you’ve ever been.
—  yet ironically full of regrets, i guess

See your struggles as opportunities for growth. Learn from them. Develop from them. Allow for them to help mould you into a stronger version of yourself. Your struggles will be painful, especially after occurring from time and time again. However, you must stay strong, for without them, how would we grow? How would we reach the great heights that we have so much potential to reach?

I know right now you feel broken and incomplete but do not let that stop you. Accept that you loved him. Do not deny that feeling, do not be afraid of it. Life is about feeling and experiencing all the emotions of the world so embrace the love you felt. And do not let the fact that you only knew him a short time invalidate your feelings. So what you only knew him two months? If you loved him, you loved him. No one else gets to tell you that you didn’t. Please know that you will love again, not in the same way but in a better way. There’s someone out there waiting to love you in ways that he was too scared to. They will give you a piece of their heart that is so filled with love for you that it will replace that missing piece. It will fit so perfectly that you’ll forget your heart was ever even broken. This was the first boy you loved. That will never change. He will always hold a piece of you. But do not let his stupidity stop you from experiencing the world. He has already taken enough of you, don’t let him take anymore.

honestly life is so beautiful and i feel like so often we take advantage of it and just go through the day never noticing the most simple, beautiful things that surround us. we are surrounded by people who are so flawed and yet so beautifully human. we are surrounded by oceans and forests and rivers and mountains and volcanoes and places so filled with life that it seems endless. we are all under a sky that is filled with changing colors and stars and planets and the sun and the moon. we are constantly surrounded by beauty and yet we constantly ignore it. look around you. there is still good. there is good in laughter and smiles and kindness and sunsets and rain and oceans. so don’t give up, there is so much good for you to take in. there is so much that is still left for you.

When looking for a life partner, my advice to women is date all of them: the bad boys, the cool boys, the commitment-phobic boys, the crazy boys. But do not marry them. The things that make the bad boys sexy do not make them good husbands. When it comes time to settle down, find someone who wants an equal partner. Someone who thinks women should be smart, opinionated and ambitious. Someone who values fairness and expects or, even better, wants to do his share in the home. These men exist and, trust me, over time, nothing is sexier.
