You are allowed to be alive. You are allowed to be somebody different. You are allowed to not say goodbye to anybody or explain a single thing to anyone, ever.
If you love a flower, don’t pick it up.
Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love.
So if you love a flower, let it be.
Love is not about possession.
Love is about appreciation.
The best kind of people are the ones that come into your life, and make you see the sun where you once saw clouds. The people that believe in you so much, you start to believe in you too. The people that love you, simply for being you. The once in a lifetime kind of people.
Love YOU first. You are the priority in your life. How you love you, how you see you, how you treat you is going to set the stage and issue the invitation that’ll draw other people in to love you. I would say the top 3 mistakes [people] make when they’re looking for love is, looking for someone outside of themselves to make them happy. Number two would be blocking intimacy. You can be intimate whether you have a love life or not. And three, doubting that they can ever really have the love they desire. The first step towards loving yourself would be looking at everything about you—and being OK with it. If you’re crazy, be okay with it. If you’re skinny, be okay with it. If you’re fat, be okay with it. If you’re short, tall, Black, White, straight, gay—just learn to be okay with who you are, AS you are, right now.
