People know your name, not your story.
They’ve heard what you’ve done,
but not what you’ve been through.
So take their opinions of you with a grain of salt.
In the end, it’s not what others think,
it’s what you think about yourself that counts.
Sometimes you have to do
exactly what’s best for you and your life,
not what’s best for everyone else.
“The world is increasingly designed to depress us.
Happiness isn’t very good for the economy.
If we were happy with what we had,
why would we need more?
How do you sell an anti-ageing moisturizer?
You make someone worry about ageing.
How do you get people to vote for a political party?
You make them worry about immigration.
How do you get them to buy insurance?
By making them worry about everything….
To be calm becomes a kind of revolutionary act.
To be happy with your own non-upgraded existence.
To be comfortable with our messy, human selves,
would not be good for business.”
~ Matt Haig
“Reasons To Stay Alive”
You don’t have to say sorry for how you laugh,
how you dress, how you speak.
You don’t have to be sorry for being yourself.
Do it fearlessly.
It’s time to accept this is you
and you gotta spend the rest of your life with you.
So, start loving your sarcasm, your awkwardness,
your unique sense of humor, your everything.
It will make your life so much easier
to simply be yourself.”
“With every act of self-care
your authentic self gets stronger,
and the critical, fearful mind gets weaker.
Every act of self-care is a powerful declaration:
I am on my side, I am on my side,
each day I am more and more on my own side.”
~ Susan Weiss Berry
“Life is too short
to waste any amount of time
on wondering what other people think about you.
In the first place,
if they had better things going on in their lives,
they wouldn’t have the time
to sit around and talk about you.
What’s important to me
is not others’ opinions of me,
but what’s important to me
is my opinion of myself.”

“And the dandelion does not stop growing
because it is told it is a weed.
The dandelion does not care what others see.
It says, ‘One day,
they”ll be making wishes upon me.'”
