"Experience life in all possible ways — good-bad, bitter-sweet, dark-light, summer-winter. Experience all the dualities. Don’t be afraid of experience, because the more experience you have, the more mature you become."
"Sure, I’m sad, but I’m not looking to soothe that sadness by replacing it with a new relationship. Women are allowed to be sad, and they’re allowed to be single, and they don’t need to hear that one day a man is going to make it all go away by telling her she is good enough again. She’s good enough as she is."
"Do you ever just want to re-meet someone? Travel down the past lane and make it back to that first pit stop. Go through that first meeting. The first hellos. The slightly awkward stances and the fumble in words (or maybe it was smooth sailing from the start and a sense of ease in the conversation was palpable). Do you ever just want to re-meet certain people? Figure them out once again and be filled with wonder over the mystery they hold. Relearn them all over again. Re-open them, explore their pages again, and maybe discover fine details you missed during the first time. Trace their patterns, read their stories, and understand their subtexts. Create a whole new set of memories with them. I want to experience “firsts” with certain people again. First greetings. First conversation. First exchange of smiles and laughs. First hugs. First inside joke. I want to get to know them again. Experience their entirety all over again and be beautifully captivated."
"If you look at the fact that you have a roof over your head, food to eat, that you are young and beautiful and live in a peaceful land, then no, you have nothing to be sad about. But the fact is, we are not only a physical body, we have souls too, and sometimes our souls get sick. If you break a leg you don’t just say ‘I have no reason to have a broken leg’ and ignore it; you seek help. It’s the same when your soul gets hurt. Don’t apologize for being sad."
