"But who prays for Satan? Who, in eighteen centuries, has had the common humanity to pray for the one sinner that needed it most?"
- Mark Twain
This is honestly my favorite quote. It’s changed how I look at life and religion.
"Finding peace doesn’t mean that you don’t feel things like anger and fear anymore. It means acceptance. It means accepting that it’s okay to be angry and scared. It means accepting that all your feelings are valid. It means allowing yourself to feel freely. It means accepting that the world is still beautiful no matter how flawed it is, and so are you. It means understanding that it’s okay if you’re not who you want to be yet because you have the rest of your life ahead of you to grow. It means being patient, understanding and generous to everyone including yourself. It means letting go and holding on at the same time. It means many different things to different people, and that’s okay. Finding peace isn’t really about “finding” peace. It’s about searching, discovering, learning, trying, failing, succeeding and failing again, loving. It’s about simply being."Emm Roy (via positivedoodles)
"Recovery feels like shit. It didn’t feel like I was doing something good; it felt like I was giving up. It feels like having to learn how to walk all over again."Portia de Rossi (via release-the-butterfly)
