When You Need to Feel Strong

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

“If you can’t fly, run. If you can’t run, walk. If you can’t walk, crawl. But by all means keep moving.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

“You just do it. You force yourself to get up. You force yourself to put one foot in front of the other, and dammit, you refuse to let it get to you. You fight. You cry. You curse. Then you go about the business of living. That’s how I’ve done it. There’s no other way.” Elizabeth Taylor

“I didn’t get there by wishing for it or hoping for it, but by working for it.” – Estée Lauder

“Be strong enough to let go and wise enough to wait for what you deserve.”

“Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn’t.” – Erica Jong

“When life gives me lemons, I build a lemonade stand and profit.”

“Stop trying to change someone who does not want to change. Stop giving chances to someone who abuses your forgiveness. Stop walking back to the place where your heart ran from. Stop trusting their words and ignoring their actions. Stop breaking your own heart.”

“Who you are is defined by what you’re willing to struggle for.” – Mark Manson

“Bravery is not the absence of fear. Bravery is feeling the fear, the doubt, the insecurity, and deciding that something else is more important.” – Mark Manson

“Start over, my darling. Be brave enough to find the life you want and courageous enough to chase it. Then start over and love yourself the way you were always meant to.” – Madalyn Beck

“I have a tendency not only to see the best in everyone, but to assume that everyone is emotionally capable of reaching his highest potential. I have fallen in love more times than I care to count with the highest potential of a man, rather than with the man himself, and I have hung on to the relationship for a long time (sometimes far too long) waiting for the man to ascend to his own greatness. Many times in romance I have been a victim of my own optimism.” – Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

“Stop wearing your wishbone where your backbone ought to be.” – Elizabeth Gilbert

“We often add to our pain and suffering by being overly sensitive, over-reacting to minor things, and sometimes taking things too personally.” – Dalai Lama

“The more chances you give someone the less respect they’ll start to have for you. They’ll begin to ignore the standards that you’ve set because they’ll know another chance will always be given. They’re not afraid to lose you because they know no matter what you won’t walk away. They get comfortable with depending on your forgiveness. Never let a person get comfortable disrespecting you.” – Trent Shelton

“There’s a difference between somebody who wants you and somebody who would do anything to keep you. Remember that.”

“I don’t have time to cry over you. I’m sorry, baby I just don’t. Right now it’s all about me… but nonetheless, I’ll pray for you. And I hope God grants you peace, spiritual growth and answers… for all the questions you’ve been asking yourself lately.” – R.M. Drake
