I’m tired of people saying that you can’t ‘save’ someone and the best thing you can do is be there for them. If a person’s words can kill someone then a person’s words can save someone. Your words and your actions have more power than you think and you never know what could be keeping someone alive.

I like beginnings because they’re so full of promise. The first page of a book, the first day of a job, the first time you buy yourself flowers, the first date with a new man, the first touch, the first kiss, the first kick of a good liquor, the first moment you hold your own baby. I like beginnings because I know there’s always more to come.

I believe that the most frightening part of recovery is accepting the idea that it is okay to be content. It is okay to like yourself and it is okay to feel happy, because it is okay to feel as though you deserve it. The idea of being deserving of acceptance is scary, only because it is something we have been denied for so long. To embrace recovery is to embrace self worth, because believe it now later, your self is worth a whole lot.

You can decorate absence however you want―but you’re still going to feel what’s missing.

If life doesn’t turn out exactly as you planned, don’t be surprised. Life is the great unknown. Even though we plan and scheme and make millions of assumptions about the future, the truth is that we don’t know what can happen in the next moment, let alone the next five weeks, months or years. So don’t be surprised when things don’t go according to your ideas, just relax and remember, life isn’t personal, it’s just life. Be open to the ever changing conditions and flow with them. Don’t get stuck.
