"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together." — Marilyn Monroe
"If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything."
I hate confrontations. I really do hate it a lot, but if I don't stand up for something that I believe, then I know that everyone will just walk all over me. I know I can be a push-over, but I have learned to stand for what I believe in, even though my legs might shake some, as long as I stand up for what I know is right, I have a backbone and I know that I will be respected more.
"In the end everything is okay, if it's not okay then it's not the end."
"The face can speak a thousand emotions but it can easily mask what the heart truly feels. Don't be fooled for the happiest face may be masking the most hurting heart."
I tell myself this all the time, because I do this all the time. I don't know what you are going through, all I know is that you are smiling, and I know what it's like to smile when your heart is hurting. I know that I try to smile at everyone that I encounter, because I don't know how that person is feeling, really. I don't know what's going on their minds and hearts. I have learned that for me, when I smile at someone, it makes me have a better day because that smile could be the only smile that person received for the day, and I gave it to them. Whenever someone acts in a certain way, I try to think of the deeper reason, because many times a person lashes out is because they are hurting.
