Hard times build determination and inner strength. Through them we can also come to appreciate the uselessness of anger. Instead of getting angry nurture a deep caring and respect for troublemakers because by creating such trying circumstances they provide us with invaluable opportunities to practice tolerance and patience.
Let us endeavor to live so that when we die even the undertaker will be sorry.
Who I am hates who I’ve been. When I look at who I was three years ago, that far away unimaginable girl sickens me. I’ve grown so much and let so much hate go. I have a long ways to go but I’ve accepted there are things I cannot change that you used to drive me mad with anger and deep seated resentment and I have learned the path to happiness and enlightenment is giving and putting the needs of others before yours. I have learned what makes a full life is vulnerability and emotion; words that used to terrify me. There’s so much more to learn and life is an ever evolving learning process but I’m happier than I’ve ever been (:
