5 quotes to get you through
In life we will all face challenges, some more traumatic than others. I truly believe that each event or incident whether good or bad plays a role in shaping us to become the best version of ourselves. Most importantly, whenever we go through something, big or small we must speak about it, giving others the courage to do the same and reminding them that they are never alone so we can heal as a collective and as cliché as it sounds, make the world a better place.
Below are some of my favorite quotes that have helped me throughout this crazy journey we call life, I hope you always turn to them whenever you need a pick me up.
“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” –
I have a deep appreciation for this quote because sometimes we tend to forget the real meaning of something ‘beautiful’. Kübler-Ross is reminding us that beautiful does not always mean flawlessly perfect.
“Show me a hero, and I’ll write you a tragedy.” ― F. Scott Fitzgerald
I find this short quote very powerful, because it is letting us know that despite the tragedies one may face, being able to get through them makes us nothing but heroes.
“Life may not be the party we hoped for… but while we’re here we may as well dance.”
― Jeanne C. Stein, Blood Drive
Pretty self-explanatory really, we may as well just dance!
You have to keep breaking your heart until it opens – Rumi
Knowing that behind every heart break there is a silver lining.
“For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must collapse.
This is not your destruction.
This is your birth.”
― Zoe Skylar
It’s okay to not feel okay, but it only means that you will rise from the ashes like a phoenix ready to take on the world.
