A great thing a friend of mine said,
Nothing comes naturally. When you try something for the first time you probably won't be good at it. To become good at something, you should start out small. When you reach a milestone, look back and see how far you've come. Then look ahead and see how much further you could go. You can reach the stars if you take the right steps.

"... I am so uninterested in a life without your father." - About Time (The greatest movie on the planet.)
Can you imagine loving someone so much that life itself becomes unbearable without them? I wish this kind of love on the best of us.
You are not what you've been through. You are more durable than you think and you will not be broken by what life throws at you.
“The problems we feel most alone with are, by definition, a shared reality with millions of others, separated by shame and shyness.” – Alain de Botton
