“One day, you’ll see that the person who decided to jump ship was never the one who put the wind in your sails; you will always be able to explore the world outside of them.”
“I have known friendship love, parental love, romantic love, family love and unrequited love in my life time, but the only love that made a difference was self love. You don’t need confirmation from the world or another person that you matter. You simply do matter. When you finally believe that truth and live it then you can do amazing things with your life.”

Learn to leave those things behind you and begin the incredible journey of learning to love yourself and the life you lead.
