Honestly, the most serendipity thing ever happened to me today. I was looking for a book to read, and knocked one off the shelf. I went to pick it up, and it had opened on this page. I can’t even explain why, but the first place my landed was on this quote. I’ve been really depressed about myself lately, and it was almost like this book was speaking to me me; that this text was telling me things I needed to hear right in that moment, just to make my day a little better. Everything happens for a reason. 

Nicholas Sparks - Safe Haven

In life, only one thing is certain, apart from death and taxes: no matter how hard you try, no matter how good your intentions, you are going to make mistakes. You are going to hurt people. You are going to get hurt. And if you ever want to recover, there’s only one thing you can really say…

…forgive and forget. That’s what they say. It’s good advice, but it’s not very practical. When someone hurts us, we want to hurt them back. When someone wrongs us, we want to be right. Without forgiveness, old scores never settle. Old wounds never heal, and the most we can hope for is that someday, we’ll be lucky enough to forget.
