“The best people all have some kind of scar.”
Kiera Cass, The One

Nina Guilbeau
“Everyone keeps telling me that time heals all wounds, but no one can tell me what I’m supposed to do right now. Right now I can’t sleep. It’s right now that I can’t eat. Right now I still hear his voice and sense his presence even though I know he’s not here. Right now all I seem to do is cry. I know all about time and wounds healing, but even if I had all the time in the world, I still don’t know what to do with all this hurt right now.”
Nina Guilbeau, Too Many Sisters

Anthon St. Maarten
“Highly sensitive people are too often perceived as weaklings or damaged goods. To feel intensely is not a symptom of weakness, it is the trademark of the truly alive and compassionate. It is not the empath who is broken, it is society that has become dysfunctional and emotionally disabled. There is no shame in expressing your authentic feelings. Those who are at times described as being a 'hot mess' or having 'too many issues' are the very fabric of what keeps the dream alive for a more caring, humane world. Never be ashamed to let your tears shine a light in this world.”
Anthon St. Maarten

Shannon L. Alder
“Defensiveness is usually someone silently screaming that they need you to value and respect them in disguise. When you look for deeper meanings behind someone’s pain you can then begin to heal not only yourself, but others.”
Shannon L. Alder

Katie Kacvinsky
“But pain's like water. It finds a way to push through any seal. There's no way to stop it. Sometimes you have to let yourself sink inside of it before you can learn how to swim to the surface.”
Katie Kacvinsky

“I couldn’t trust my own emotions. Which emotional reactions were justified, if any? And which ones were tainted by the mental illness of BPD? I found myself fiercely guarding and limiting my emotional reactions, chastising myself for possible distortions and motivations. People who had known me years ago would barely recognize me now. I had become quiet and withdrawn in social settings, no longer the life of the party. After all, how could I know if my boisterous humor were spontaneous or just a borderline desire to be the center of attention? I could no longer trust any of my heart felt beliefs and opinions on politics, religion, or life. The debate queen had withered. I found myself looking at every single side of an issue unable to come to any conclusions for fear they might be tainted. My lifelong ability to be assertive had turned into a constant state of passivity.”
Rachel Reiland, Get Me Out of Here: My Recovery from Borderline Personality Disorder

T.F. Hodge
“Scorned and torn, former love mates aim and shoot childish devastating daggers that penetrate beyond target to pierce the heart of their offspring.”
T.F. Hodge, From Within I Rise: Spiritual Triumph Over Death and Conscious Encounters with "The Divine Presence"

Charlotte Brontë
“But when one does not complain, and when one wants to master oneself with a tyrant’s grip — one’s faculties rise in revolt — and one pays for outward calm with an almost unbearable inner struggle.”
Charlotte Brontë

“It's obvious that someone is going through emotional pain when you could look at them and see deep pain in their eyes even while they are smiling.”
Edmond Mbiaka

“when a child is ridiculed, shamed, hurt or ignored when she experiences and expresses a legitimate dependency need, she will later be inclined to attach those same affective tones to her dependency. Thus, she will experience her own (and perhaps others’) dependency as ridiculous, shameful, painful, or denied.
- Dependency in the Treatment of complex PTSD and Dissociative Disorders 2001
Authors: Kathy Steele, Onno van der Hart, Ellert R. S. Nijenhuis”

Lailah Gifty Akita
“It is better to experience moment of discomfort in the achievement of your dreams than to be comfortable without accomplishing your dreams.”
Lailah Gifty Akita, Beautiful Quotes

Ashly Lorenzana
“Don't be scared of scars. They just tell stories that are hard to hear.”
Ashly Lorenzana

L.M. Montgomery
“There are moments when we have real fun because, just for the moment, we don't think about things and then--we remember--and the remembering is worse than thinking of it all the time would have been.”
L.M. Montgomery, Rilla of Ingleside

Carla H. Krueger
“I lose it when I can't write. I feel sad and confused and fucked off.”
Carla H. Krueger

Ross Thomas
“I think she must have lived where all the sad poets live, in that secret place where everything hurts all the time.”
Ross Thomas

“You cannot continue to hold on to your negative past and keep wondering why your present is full of emotional pain. Adopt the habit of Focusing on the things that bring light to your success and happiness. You were born to learn and grow in all circumstances.”
Edmond Mbiaka

“To decide to quit on yourself, is to be willing to settle for the pain that comes with every big regret.”
Edmond Mbiaka

Adele von Rust McCormick
“When we encounter a friend who's depressed or afraid, we automatically try to take that distress away and to cheer the person up. While we may be operating with the best of intentions, this Band-Aid approach only reinforces the condition. Unless people experience their pain completely and begin to undrstand it, they will not only fail to overcome it, they'll also lose the opportunity of using it to advance their own growth. Pain can get you somewhere, and that somewhere can be a life-enhancing experience. We all tend to forget that pain can signal change. Alleviating the symptoms of pain in someone, without helping them to get at its underlying source, robs them of an important to for self-exploration. It's also a way of placating that reinforces the person'S need to cave in and succumb to another. This attitude undermines healthy character development and contributes to psychospiritual, moral, and ultimately social decay.”
Adele von Rust McCormick, Horse Sense and the Human Heart

Carla H. Krueger
“My best writing surfaces out of the need to rebel, the desire to end emotional chaos and the importance I place on embracing that independent streak inside us all that makes us want to break free of limits put on us by those who are prisoners of their own fear.”
Carla H. Krueger

“I was once asked, 'How do you manage to always be in a positive spirit?' I replied, 'It is because I cannot afford to live with the emotional pain that comes with dwelling on negativity.”
Edmond Mbiaka
