1. Pining after someone does this weird thing to your grief. It’s like, you know you should be grieving someone, or you know you should be past grieving someone. But you also know that grieving should be separate, a more personal thing. Your sadness over the person you’ve lost is intensified by the sadness over the person you want, and vice versa. Don’t feel bad if you feel more than you “should” about something or someone. Chances are you had those feelings already, hiding in your heart, waiting for a home.
2. Some days are going to be better than others. Some days, the hardest thing you’ll face is pulling yourself out of bed. Life sucks. And then it gets better. And then it sucks again.
3. There comes a point in life when enough’s enough. If you’re haggling for money that you don’t even need, enough’s enough.
4. I hope you never make a home out of something that makes you weak.

7. You’ll always heal from heartbreak. You may heal a little funny, you could end up a bit bent out of shape compared to how you started out. But walking out of this life with a limp, or even a full body cast, shows you gave it your all. It’s better to be a bit broken but come out stronger on the other side.

10. “So, I’ve been thinking about this whole being happy thing, and I feel like people get lost when they think of happiness as a destination. We’re always thinking that someday we’ll be happy; we’ll get that car or that job or that person in our lives that will fix everything. But happiness is a mood, it’s a condition, not a destination. It’s like being tired or hungry, it’s not permanent. It comes and goes, and that’s okay. And I feel like if people thought of it that way, they’d find happiness more often.” — Julian Baker, One Tree Hill.
