“If we have goals and dreams and we want to do our best, and if we love people and we don’t want to hurt or lose them, then we should feel pain when things go wrong. The point isn’t to live without any regrets; the point is to not hate ourselves for having them… we need to learn to love the flawed, imperfect things that we create, and to forgive ourselves for creating them. Regret doesn’t remind us that we did badly—it reminds us that we know we can do better.” — Kathryn Schulz
“People are strange: they are constantly angered by trivial things, but on a major matter like totally wasting their lives, they hardly seem to notice.” —Charles Bukowski
After someone hurts you, you're not the same anymore.
