    “I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself.”

    — Jonathan Carroll

    You’re a part of me now whether I like it or not. But you’re not my other half. You don’t complete me. I don’t like the way that sounds, as if I am not whole. I don’t lose myself If I lose you. I don’t break. I love you fully and I still get to be my own person. We all say we want to be the main character in our lives, but you can’t be if you never put yourself first. Learn to love someone without losing yourself in the process.

    I've wasted a lot of time in my life. I've thought too much about what people will say or what they're gonna think. And sometimes it's over silly things like going to the grocery store or going to the post office. But there have been times when I really stopped myself from doing something special. All because I was scared someone might look at me and decide I wasn't good enough. But you don't have to bother with that nonsense. I wasted all that time so you don't have to.
