+ just when you think you have everything figured out, the universe will promptly shove your arrogance right back in your face... maybe just to ground you again. to humble you. to yank you down off that high cloud. to remind you that your ideas are not superior to anyone else's, because everyone is really just trying the best they can with the tools they were given.
+ nobody is entirely dependable---not even that one person who is always there for you, and could never let you down. truth is, they could, and they probably will, one way or another. because nobody is perfect, and sometimes people are too busy fighting their own battles to understand or help you with yours. love them anyway. understand. and forgive yourself for reacting.
+ sometimes those strong foundations give way for a little while so that we can prove to ourselves that we are capable of standing without them. perhaps the feeling of standing alone will feel so good and fulfilling, that you won't NEED so much emotional support ever again. not because supportive relationships like that aren't lovely, but because there is no greater joy than learning to find the answers within yourself.
+ the only control we really have in this wild world is over our own internal peace. the negativity of others can sometimes bring us down, but the only real way to help them (and ourselves), is to remain a constant source of love and light. why? because our energies are contagious. and the only way to combat negativity is to stay firm in its opposite :)
