Everyone sees what you appear to be; few really know who you are.

Niccolò Machiavelli (via onlinecounsellingcollege)

Learn as much as you can while you are young, since life becomes too busy later.

"One of the magical things about theater is that it gathers a crowd of people in a quiet space, and each member of the audience gets to see how people respond differently to the different things being said on stage. The person next to you will laugh at something that you’d never think of laughing at, and you’ll get a glimpse into all the different ways of viewing the world. Unfortunately, so much theater today is less nuanced. It gives you a large dose of one way of thinking, in hopes of getting as many of the same type of people into the theater as possible."

I am always amazed by people who know something is wrong but still insist on ignoring it, as if that will somehow make it go away. They spare themselves the confrontation, but end up boiling in resentment anyway.

The way you treat yourself is the standard you set for others.

*Takes a deep breath*

I feel much better. I am much better. Compared to when? No - 

I’m simply well. Content. In the moment. 

And a mistake repeated more than once is a decision.
