People will love you, people will hate you, and none of it will have anything to do with you.

Perhaps most of all, though, you deserve to be okay. You deserve to know that a day in which you can just barely get out of bed because you are sad, or sick, or simply not ready to see the outside is not the end of the world. You deserve to know that moments of weakness do not make you fundamentally weak, only fundamentally human, and that sometimes we’re not going to be effusively happy, and that is okay.

Why we Need Time Alone

1. It allows us to hear, and really listen to, our heart.

2. It helps us to feel – instead of push down – our emotions.

3. It helps us to decide who we really want to be.

4. It allows us to step back from the pressure to fit in.

5. It frees us from the need to please, or seek others’ approval.

6. It helps us to establish more appropriate boundaries.

7. It allows us to recharge our batteries.

There comes a day when you realize turning the page is the best feeling in the world because you realize there was so much more to the book than the page you were stuck on.

How to Avoid Over-Thinking

1. When you feel bogged down and you can’t clear your mind, do something physical or get some exercise.

2. Set a time limit for your “thinking time” then make yourself move on to doing something else.

3. Interrupt the thinking process or distract yourself by diverting your attention onto something very different.

4. Stop discussing what concerns you with everyone you meet as you’ll just end up confused, and you won’t know what to do.

5. Accept that uncertainty is part of this life, and we don’t have all the facts, or know what’s further down the road.

6. Throw yourself into a project, a hobby or some work. That will force you to refocus on something else instead.

7. Let your mind go blank and just relax for a while. It will help you see more clearly when you start to think, next time.

Try not to resist the changes that come your way. Instead let life live through you. And do not worry that your life is turning upside down. How do you know that the side you are used to is better than the one to come?

Love isn’t only love, sweetheart. It’s hard work, and trust, and tears, with even a few glimpses of devastation. But at the end of each day, if you can still look at the person at your side and can’t imagine anyone else you’d rather have there, the pain, the heartache and the ups and downs of love are worth it.

If you seek peace, be still.
If you seek wisdom, be silent.
If you seek love, be yourself.
