"If people want to let you go, just let them do it. They may not understand who you are. So don’t play around with fire; don’t give them their cake and let them eat it too. Here is your rule of thumb: they either commit to you or get none of you."
"There are some people who could hear you speak a thousand words and still not understand you. And there are others who will understand without you even speaking a word."
"You’re under no obligation to be the same person you were five minutes ago."
"You are defined by the way in which you treat the people you love. And, the people you hate."
"Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place."
"Forgiveness is the key to breaking the cycle of karma and reincarnation. Forgiveness doesn’t mean: “What you did was okay.” It simply means, “I’m no longer willing to carry the heavy toxic burdens of anger, resentment, and victimhood in my soul.” You can work on healing, uplifting, and changing situations from a place of forgiveness, instead of from a place of resentment. Forgive yourself and everyone, and you are free!"
