If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart, forgive them, for they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to whom you open your heart.
Sometimes things happen to you, and at the time they may seem horrible, painful and unfair; But in reflection you will realize that without overcoming those obstacles, you never would have realized your potential strength, willpower or heart.
Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of good or bad luck.
Let yourself fall in love again, break free, set your sights high and try something new.
Hold your head up because you have every right to.
Learn to trust your own instincts and have faith in all you can be.
And always remember: You are braver than you believe,
Stronger than you seem and smarter than you think.
