Those who love you are not fooled by mistakes you have made, or by dark images you hold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly; your wholeness when you are broken; your innocence when you feel guilty; and your purpose when you are confused.
Alan Cohen (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
Maybe you are searching among branches for what only appears in the roots.
Identify your painful thought. Question it, and wake yourself up; no one else can.
