What made you happy once may not make you happy now.
Holding on to things only breaks your heart.
The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too.
I’ve always been a very good judge of people. That’s why I like so few of them.
In order to fly, you have to let go of the world you’re hanging on to.
Remember that you and I made this journey together to a place where there was nowhere left to go.

10 Signs That You Are Too Dependent
There’s a fine line between leaning on your friends or your partner, and being too dependent. It’s easy to fall into a trap of depending on other people for everything in your life, but it’s not a healthy way to live. Here are 10 signs that you are too dependent on others:
1. You check with your friends before you date someone. If you’d never dream of dating someone that your friends didn’t ok beforehand, then you are too dependent. It’s great to look for a partner that your friends like and get along with, but it’s going too far if you have to get their approval before considering dating someone. If you avoid dating someone because you don’t think your friends would approve, you could be missing out on some great relationships.
Types Of Relationship Insecurity
From time to time every one of us feels insecure in our lives and in our relationships. Insecurity can manifest itself in many different forms. Here are some of the top types of relationship insecurity:
· Jealousy. Jealousy is never really about the person that you’re jealous of – it’s about you. Feeling jealous of someone usually means that we aren’t feeling great about ourselves, and we see something in him or her that we feel we are lacking. So if we see another guy or girl as a threat in our relationship it’s usually because we perceive them to have qualities that we don’t have. We become insecure and afraid that our partners would prefer to be with someone who is more like that person. The more secure we are with our relationships, and ourselves the less likely we are to become jealous.
As I look back on my life, I realize that every time I thought I was being rejected from something good, I was actually being re-directed to something better.
