  • Love happens, hearts break and life ends, or at least that's what it feels like. It gets hard to breath and even harder to carry on, but there is a strength in each one of us that allows us to get back up, to lunge forward and to come out better than we were before. I think deep down we all know it's not the end of the world, but when that knowledge is pushed too deep and the pain is to real, remember these quotes and try to find the strength to be happy.

  • 1. Life's struggles lay the groundwork for a bright future

  • "Pain makes you stronger, tears make you braver, and heartbreaks make you wiser, so thank the past for a better future." - Unknown

  • 2. It always takes longer than you think it should, but it always comes

  • "Healing comes in waves and maybe today the wave hits the rocks

  • And that's ok, that's ok, darling

  • You are still healing you are still healing." - Ljeoma Umebinyeo

  • 3. Give consent to heal willingly and quickly; don't make yourself suffer longer than necessary

  • "Our bodies heal without permission, but our hearts need consent. Give it." - Lauren Eden

  • "Don't cry when the sun is gone because the tears won't let you see the stars." - Violeta Para

  • 5. Everything may not be great immediately, but it will be okay

  • "The biggest lesson I've learned is, 'it's okay.' It's okay for me to be kind to myself. It's okay to be wrong. It's okay to get mad. It's okay to be flawed. It's okay to be happy. It's okay to move on." - Unknown

  • 6. Be brave and shade every memory yellow

  • "We draw maps of each other's pasts. Heartbreaks colored in black. Grief outlined in purple. The happiest times shaded yellow. This is how we learn each other. We are so scared and brave. We are so terrified and willing. We rewrite the definition of brave and it is this: love again. love again. love again." - Fortesa Latifi
