You can’t live your life for other people. You’ve got to do what’s right for you, even if it hurts some people you love.
The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.
— Steve Jobs (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation, but thoughts about it. Be aware of the thoughts you are thinking.
— Eckhart Tolle (via psych-facts)
How strange it is. We have these deep terrible lingering fears about ourselves and the people we love. Yet we walk around, talk to people, eat and drink. We manage to function. The feelings are deep and real. Shouldn’t they paralyze us? How is it we can survive them, at least for a little while? We drive a car, we teach a class. How is it no one sees how deeply afraid we were, last night, this morning? Is it something we all hide from each other, by mutual consent? Or do we share the same secret without knowing it? Wear the same disguise?
