You are in good hands…

The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change

To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself

Getting over a painful experience is much like crossing monkey bars. You have to let go at some point in order to move forward
