A true friend by your side is just a bonus – you can do this on your own ๐Ÿ™

Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.”

Oprah Winfrey

Difficult times let you know who your real friends are. This is actually a beautiful part of the dark times you are going through. It is time for you to stop caring so much about people who donโ€™t really care about you – just let them go and look towards where you are going instead. ๐Ÿ™

True friends do not leave your side when you are hurting. True friends wipe your tears away and hold nothing but love in their heart for you when you have shattered into a million pieces. If you are blessed to have just one true friend in your life, you are indeed very lucky. However, the one best friend in your life that will always be there for you – no matter what – has to be YOU. Your own love, support and approval matters more than anything else and is enough to get you through anything. A friend by your side is just a beautiful bonus. ๐Ÿ™


A relationship more satisfying than anything you could ever imagine ๐Ÿฆ‹

You don’t need a hero to rescue you, you don’t need a prince charming to come and sweep you off your feet.

What you truly need is to learn how to value yourself. The love, approval and guidance you desire need to come from within – otherwise you will not be free.

Once you have learned to value and love yourself, unconditionally, then every other relationship you have will be satisfying beyond anything you could ever imagine. It begins and ends with you.

Are you happy? Are you satisfied? – Then you are doing it right ๐Ÿ’

There are so many people around you that think they know how you should live, what you should enjoy doing and how you should spend your time. But they are all wrong. No one except you can know what is right or wrong for you at any given moment. You have to listen to your own guidance. It doesn’t matter if it is big decisions such as if you should move to another country, if you should have children or if it is small decisions such as how you should spend this evening – the peanut gallery (your family, your friends, society, the world…) might have many different beliefs about what is right or wrong to choose and they might have very detailed expectations of you – but they could not possibly know what is best for you. Only you can know that, in your heart. Follow what feels like relief to you, listen to what calls you and choose what makes you happy. ๐Ÿ™

Do you want people to value, respect, understand and support you? Then look at others with love and compassion in your heart ๐Ÿ™

Isn’t this kind of empowering to think about? You can’t control how others see you or how they treat you – but you can control the most important part in it all: what you think about others and how you react to their behavior – and that will make all the difference. ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’

Success is achieved when you learn not only to survive the storm but to thrive because of it ๐Ÿ™

Donโ€™t depend too much on anyone in this world. Even your shadow leaves you when youโ€™re in darkness.
Jay Shetty

You will fight your toughest battles alone. Others might or might not be there to support you and love you through it, but you have to do all the work. Success is not achieved by being carried over troubled waters, success is achieved when you learn not only to survive the storm but to thrive because of it.

A lot of people disappear when you go through difficult times – and that is a wonderful thing ๐Ÿ™

If youโ€™re absent during my struggle donโ€™t expect to be present during my success.”

Will Smith

There is a reason why a lot of people disappear when you go through difficult times – they were not your people to begin with. The difficulties just made it easier for you to see who truly cares about you. ๐ŸŒน

When everything is dark, when you are poor, broken and lost – they will love you even more โค๏ธ

“Some people talk to you on their free time, others free their time to talk to you. Learn the difference.”

Jet Li

Those who truly care about you and value you will always be there by your side when you need it the most. When everything is dark, when you are poor, broken and lost – they will love you even more.

Those who don’t care about you will fall by the wayside. Don’t mourn losing them, you never really had them anyway ๐Ÿ™.

A kind stranger is more valuable than an uncaring relative ๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒน

There can be more kindness in a smile from a stranger than from someone you have known your entire life.

A caring heart can be found anywhere, and time means nothing, love is limitless and unconditional when it is true.

Do not feel disheartened if someone you used to call family turns their back on you, kindness and love can be found anywhere and has nothing to do with family ties. ๐Ÿ™

If they turn their back on you ๐ŸŒน

Even if the whole world turns their back on you, youโ€™ll always have yourself.

Lady Gaga

It doesn’t matter if the entire world is against you and you are all alone – you deserve your own love and affection just as much as everyone else does. We are all loved and adored simply because we excist. You don’t have to prove anything to anyone, you are already worthy of all things you desire. But YOU have to be there for YOU, you have to support yourself. Believe in yourself and most importantly – begin to love yourself unconditionally. ๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ™

It is nice to have people look up to you, adore you and love you – but this is even better:

No matter how much success you have โ€” no matter how many opportunities, fame, fortune, no matter how many people accept you to your face โ€” the person that really needs to accept you is you.

Lady Gaga

It is nice to have people look up to you, adore you and love you. It is nice to be liked, valued and appreciated. But it is even better to feel true freedom from what other people think of you by knowing your own value so strongly that nothing they say can rock your boat.

If there is one skill you should begin to practice, let it be the skill of self acceptance, self appreciation – the skill of self love.
