"A happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances, but rather a person with a certain set of attitudes. -Hugh Downs"

"Stop putting your happiness in other peoples’ hands. They will drop it, no matter what words come out of their mouth. People leave and come back and sometimes leave again. You can’t rely on someone to make you feel beautiful. You need to learn how to love with yourself before you fall in love with another person. If you don’t love yourself, they’ll constantly remind you how much they love and want you, but oh god, that won’t change a thing about how you feel about yourself. So, stop hating your thighs because they’re not a size zero. You have the ability to change how you act and think at any giving moment. If you love yourself, everything will be easier. I think that loving yourself is the strongest thing to do. There’s so much more to you than the things you’re seeing. Try. Just try to love yourself, even if it’s just for a day."
