Relationships

Hunger for God

“The greatest disease in the West today is not TB or leprosy; it is being unwanted, unloved, and uncared for. We can cure physical diseases with medicine, but the only cure for loneliness, despair, and hopelessness is love. There are many in the world who are dying for a piece of bread but there are many more dying for a little love. The poverty in the West is a different kind of poverty – it is not only a poverty of loneliness, but also of spirituality. There’s a hunger for love, as there is a hunger for God” – Mother Teresa

Ripple Effect

“I live my life in widening circles that reach out across the world.” – Rainer Maria Rilke

Sounds Simple But…

“Do not let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace.” – Dalai Lama

Your Happiness is Your Job

“As long as you leave to others the responsibility to make you happy, you will always be miserable, because that is actually your job.” – Linda Alfiori

Always the Victim?

“A narcissist paints a picture of themselves as being the victim or innocent in all aspects. They will be offended by the truth, but what is done in the dark will come to light. Time has a way of showing people’s true colors.” – Karla Grimes

Who You Are

“Freedom is not an ideal, it is a by-product of accepting whosoever you are.” – Osho        

Elegance in Action

“Elegance is usually confused with superficiality, fashion, lack of depth. This is a serious mistake: human beings need to have elegance in their actions and in their posture because this word is synonymous with good taste, amiability, equilibrium and harmony.” – Paulo Coelho

You’re Doing Fine

“Lighten up on yourself. No one is perfect. Gently accept your humanness.” – Deborah Day

Harsh Teacher

“When we meet and fall into the gravitational pull of a narcissist, we are entering a significant life lesson that involves learning how to create boundaries, self-respect, and resilience. Through trial and error (and a lot of pain), our connection with narcissists teaches us the necessary lessons we need to become mature empaths.” – Mateo Sol

Soft Touch

“Sometimes it’s not the strength, but gentleness that cracks the hardest shells.” – Richard Paul Evans
