There’s no point in consistently worrying about everything. What will happen will happen anyways. So breathe, look on the bright side, have some laughs, fall in love, accept what you can’t change, and carry on. To actually live is courageous. Most people exist, that is all.

You’re going to remember it. All of it, for a long time. The first time you both met eyes, and the first time he touched you. The first time he called you beautiful, and the first time he said “I love you.” It’s going to hurt like hell, but you can’t let it defeat you. Show him that you can breathe without him, although you swore to him you couldn’t.
—  S.B // excerpt from a book I’ll never write

You must be willing to change. You must be willing to break the deal you made with the devils within. You must be willing to leave the past and not be tempted to rebound when times are tough.

You must be willing to let go of everything and anyone that takes you back to your sins. You must be willing to have hope. You must be willing to have hope that you can change and that you will and that you will be better.

You must believe you are worthy of change and you are worthy of improvement and you are worthy of being the best.

You must be willing to set aside your negative notions about life, about hardships, about people, about things, about yourself. You must be willing to stop feeling sorry for yourself while looking at the world move around you.

Get up and make something of yourself.
