"Tell everyone you know: "My happiness depends on me, so you're off the hook." And then demonstrate it. Be happy, no matter what they're doing. Practice feeling good, no matter what. And before you know it, you will not give anyone else responsibility for the way you feel—and then, you'll love them all. Because the only reason you don't love them, is because you're using them as your excuse to not feel good." - Abraham

The three quotes I love the most and and have printed in big bold letters and put on my wall: “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." [Eleanor Roosevelt] “It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not.” [André Gide] "I'm putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do." [ A Space Odyssey" (1968)]

"The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place, and I don't care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard you hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done! Now, if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain't you. You're better than that...but until you start believing in yourself, you ain't gonna have a life.” Sylvester Stallone, Rocky Balboa
