Do you ever wonder if we make the moments in our lives, or if the moments in our lives make us?
If you could go back and change one thing about your life, would you? And if you did, would that change make your life better? Or would that change ultimately break your heart, or break the heart of another? Or would you choose an entirely different path? Or would you change just one thing, just one moment? One moment that you’ve always wanted back.

Make all your decisions based on how hilarious it would be if you did it.
It’s okay to change your yes to a no. Yes’s aren’t permanent. They’re something we choose again and again, each and every day. Something we have the right to recall and reconsider as soon as saying yes no longer feels conducive to our wellbeing and happiness. It doesn’t matter whether you said yes to a job, a date, a relationship, sex, a favor to a friend, a social endeavor, or a vow of silence — you don’t ever have to commit to something that forces you to compromise who you are and what feels right; especially if it’s something you agreed to under pressure, intimidation, or force. Changing your yes to a no might make people angry. It might hurt their feelings, cause them to see you as a flake, and result in lost connections. But if saying no means staying true to yourself, honoring your feelings, and making self-care a priority, it’s worth it. You are worth it. Don’t let anyone convince you otherwise.
Would ‘sorry’ have made any difference? Does it ever? It’s just a word. One word against a thousand actions.
You will fall in love with someone who’s cold and always seemingly pushing you away. When all is said and done, they will be forever known as the one person you couldn’t get to love you. Unfortunately, it will hurt and sting worse than the good ones, the ones that chopped up your meat for you and picked out an eyelash from your eye and were nice to your mother, because love often feels like a game we need to win.
