Have the courage to trust that
the beautiful butterflies of your life
will return - or not - as life intends.

Take time to work.
It is the price of success.

You can learn how to let go of the past.
Whether you have experienced a break up

Move on and let go.
Life can be joyful and rewarding again.

To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places.

And never, never, to forget.
- Arundhati Roy

but we cannot accept and love ourselves.

the reassuring hand on the shoulder of a loved one or friend.

but there is also compassion in heartfelt empathy.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
