One day a father told his son of a battle that goes on inside people.

He said “Son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all.”

“One is Evil – full of negativity, lies, anger, sorrow, ego, jealousy, greed, fear, despair and complacency.

“The other is good – it’s positivity, truth, serenity, kindness, generosity, compassion, balance, faith, hope and strive.

The son thought about it a while and then asked his father: “Which wolf wins?”.

The father replied “The one you feed.”

I am made of more; more than tears, more than heartache, more than all of this.
Tyler Knott Gregson

That’s how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can’t breathe, that’s how you survive. By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won’t feel this way. It won’t hurt this much.
Grey’s Anatomy

The good times and the bad times both will pass. It will pass. It will get easier. But the fact that it will get easier does not mean that it doesn’t hurt now. And when people try to minimize your pain they are doing you a disservice. And when you try to minimize your own pain you’re doing yourself a disservice. Don’t do that. The truth is that it hurts because it’s real. It hurts because it mattered. And that’s an important thing to acknowledge to yourself. But that doesn’t mean that it won’t end, that it won’t get better. Because it will.
John Green
