Sometimes we may find that our partner continues to seek satisfaction in ways that we cannot live with. Nevertheless, when we decide to go our own way, we still have a choice as to how we separate.

Be that strong girl that everyone knew would make it through the worst. Be that fearless girl, the one who would dare to do anything. Be that independant girl who didn't need a man. Be that girl who never backed down.

If somebody hurts you, it's okay to cry a river, but remember to build a bridge and get over it.

In life and love, you learn that there comes a time to let go and move on.

Just because something is over doesn't mean it wasn't incredibly beautiful. 

There are two ways you can go with pain: you can let it destroy you or you can use it as fuel to drive you.

To truly love is to have the courage to walk away and let the other person who wishes to be free go, no matter how much it hurts.

You need to be happy with yourself or you'll never be able to be happy in a relationship.

Do not take my breath away and then expect me to forget all about you.

Everyone wants to be held, but are scared of being dropped.

It takes a lot of love to learn that you can never miss somebody into coming back.

Loving someone can blind you, just as easily as, losing them can open your eyes.

Make a list of 100 things you love about yourself and then laugh, because you know whoever isn't with you, is missing out on so much.
