Everything happens for a reason and without hard times, how would we ever realize our true strength? It’s only through a time of suffering when we realize how strong we truly are inside, when we realize how much we can actually put up with and deal with before we eventually break.
Here’s a lesson for every girl out there: Never, ever settle. You may think you aren’t gorgeous or smart or have too many insecurities to count. But there is going to be someone in the world who truly loves you for you. Don’t ever think that you’ve got to put up with some boy’s rudeness because he’s the first one in a long time to show some interest. You are all beautiful in your own individual way, so never lower your standards.
Forgive and forget. That’s what they say. It’s good advice, but it’s not very practical. When someone hurts us, we want to hurt them back. When someone wrongs us, we want to be right. Without forgiveness ole scores never settle. Old wounds never heal, and the most we can hope for is that someday we’ll be luck enough to forget.
