You'll get through it. Remember you have come this far, you have survived this long, and you can still do it, every single day.


Life doesn't always introduce you to the people you want to meet. Sometimes life puts you in touch with the people you need to meet, to help you, to hurt you, to leave you, to love you, and to gradually strenghten you into the person you were meant to become.

Being hurt is normal, but processing it is too. Letting go of pain is essential to feeling good again, and most importantly happy. You're allowed to feel everything strongly and close to heart, but don't let it control you to the point you're hurting more than living.

You're allowed to be happy just as much as you're allowed to be sad. Don't be afraid of feelings, let them strenghten you.

Eyes wide open?

We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have, if only we seek them with our eyes open.

Dare to travel. Dare to be the person you are. Dare to love. Dare to learn. Dare to go after your dreams and ambitions. Dare to grow. Dare to go when everyone else is staying. Dare to think. Dare to work hard for what you want.

Dare to live.
