Tough Love Helps Us See What Foolish Sight Has Hid
Life's a b*tch and then you die.
Life. For such a short, four-letter word, it's heavy. We are all living proof that life happens different and unfolds at its own rate and on its own course. That's the beauty in life though, it doesn't happen exactly the same for any two people. We're all just wandering the Earth trying to figure out what the purpose of ours is...before it runs out. So, let these quotes settle in but most importantly reflect on the life you're living and make adjustments if necessary.
"These mountains that you are carrying, you were only supposed to climb."
"Two things prevent us from happiness, living in the past and observing others."
"Don't complain about things you're not willing to change."
"If you can't do anything about it then let it go. Don't be a prisoner to things you can't change."
"Fools take a knife and stab people in the back. The wise take a knife, cut the cord, and set themselves free from the fools."
"At some point in life, the world's beauty becomes enough."
"Everybody has a chapter they don't read out loud."
"You're always one decision away from a totally different life."
"We all eat lies when our hearts are hungry."
"Treat me like a joke and I'll leave you like it's funny."
"I will not be another flower, picked for my beauty and left to die. I will be wild, difficult to find, and impossible to forget."
"her soul was too deep to explore by those who always swam in the shallow end."
"If the world was blind how many people would you impress?"
We don't have a choice on how we are brought into this world but we get to control what we do with the life that we are given. Of course, a quote isn't a quick fix to any of life's woes but it can give some perspective on how complex life is. And maybe it's not meant for us to over analyze it, just to live it the best way that we know how to.
