Get It?

December 30, 2011


Everyone in this world is going through something. Sometimes we need to be reminded of that; then our problems won't seem so bad. Stop focusing so much on ourselves and how much we were put out or hurt and have compassion for our fellow humans.

Feeling Lonely?

December 23, 2011


If you are at first lonely, be patient. If you've not been alone much, or if when you were, you weren't okay with it, then just wait. You'll find it's fine to be alone once you're embracing it. ....

I was on the subway, sitting on a newspaper, and a guy comes over and asks "Are you reading that?" I didn’t know what to say. So I said yes. I stood up, turned the page, and sat down again. (David Brenner)
