33 Things I've Learned

  4. Getting your heart broken has been equivalent to the pain of experiencing the loss of a life

  5. No one will ever replace your parents...and no one should

  6. Feelings change...therefore your emotions shouldn't rule your life

  7. Everybody needs therapy in one form or another

  8. You cannot grow in isolation

  13. You CAN change the world one heart at a time

  14. Favor aint always fair

  15. Faith and obedience are the greatest tools in the shed

  16. When you're surrounded by darkness, pray and fast until you see the light

  17. I don't have to control everything...when things are beyond MY control, embrace change

  18. You dont have to simply love the one you're with, you must love yourself completely FIRST

  19. I will be "under construction" and "a work in progress" for the rest of my natural life

  20. It's ok to just be...it's ok to just be ME

  21. No matter how much weight I lose or gain, my heart still weighs the same

  22. Time really does heal!

  23. You can't pick your family, but you can choose when you want to deal with them!
