Sometimes one waits too long for the perfect moment before snapping the picture. You never realize that all you needed was to change perspective.
So when people leave, I’ve learned the secret: let them. Because, most of the time, they have to.
Let them walk away and go places. Let them have adventures in the wild without you. Let them travel the world and explore life beyond a horizon that you exist in. And know, deep down, that heroes aren’t qualified by their capacity to stay but by their decision to return.
Comparing yourself to others is an act of violence against your authentic self.
Angry people want you to see how powerful they are. Loving people want you to see how powerful you are.
I remember when I was younger and I wanted to be beautiful; now I’m older and I want to be intelligent. I want to burn hearts with brilliance and engulf souls with compassion. I want to be loved for my thoughts and nothing else.
