1. Acceptance
2. Understanding

So, for the love of a triangle, please keep love whole.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

We may become strangers to those who thought they knew us, but at least we are no longer strangers to ourselves.”

“Change doesn’t require leaving your life behind and starting anew. You aren’t required to quit your job, move across the world, sell all your belongings, or start a new extravagant hobby. You can but you don’t have to. Change can be as simple as appreciating the joyful tune of a singing bird, the delicate shape of a soaring snowflake, or the pleasant hope of a sprouting sapling. You can make change as simple or complex as you please.”
Avina Celeste

“I always wondered why girls are so confusing;
But it is not always girls who are confusing, we boys even make things more complex.

The reason for confusion is the situation that needs to be understood and that understanding will lead to great relation.”
Kapil Dhingra
