“People that have trust issues only need to look in the mirror. There they will meet the one person that will betray them the most.”
Shannon L. Alder

Andrew Solomon
“You are constantly told in depression that your judgment is compromised, but a part of depression is that it touches cognition. That you are having a breakdown does not mean that your life isn't a mess. If there are issues you have successfully skirted or avoided for years, they come cropping back up and stare you full in the face, and one aspect of depression is a deep knowledge that the comforting doctors who assure you that your judgment is bad are wrong. You are in touch with the real terribleness of your life. You can accept rationally that later, after the medication sets in, you will be better able to deal with the terribleness, but you will not be free of it. When you are depressed, the past and future are absorbed entirely by the present moment, as in the world of a three-year-old. You cannot remember a time when you felt better, at least not clearly; and you certainly cannot imagine a future time when you will feel better.”
Andrew Solomon, The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression

Azar Nafisi
“You don't read Gatsby, I said, to learn whether adultery is good or bad but to learn about how complicated issues such as adultery and fidelity and marriage are. A great novel heightens your senses and sensitivity to the complexities of life and of individuals, and prevents you from the self-righteousness that sees morality in fixed formulas about good and evil.”
Azar Nafisi, Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books

Shannon L. Alder
“The more you talk about it, rehash it, rethink it, cross analyze it, debate it, respond to it, get paranoid about it, compete with it, complain about it, immortalize it, cry over it, kick it, defame it, stalk it, gossip about it, pray over it, put it down or dissect its motives it continues to rot in your brain. It is dead. It is over. It is gone. It is done. It is time to bury it because it is smelling up your life and no one wants to be near your rotted corpse of memories and decaying attitude. Be the funeral director of your life and bury that thing!”
Shannon L. Alder

Shannon L. Alder
“The true definition of mental illness is when the majority of your time is spent in the past or future, but rarely living in the realism of NOW.”
Shannon L. Alder

Shannon L. Alder
“Bitter people are not interested in what you say, but what you hide.”
Shannon L. Alder

Criss Jami
“You get hit the hardest when trying to run or hide from a problem. Like the defense on a football field, putting all focus on evading only one defender is asking to be blindsided.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

T.F. Hodge
“Having beef with someone is unnecessary and avoidable. Whatever the issue, if not positive, it is an opportunity to cut the excess fat from an unhealthy dietary network. Simply excuse yourself from the table of negativity and lean forward in peace.”
T.F. Hodge, From Within I Rise: Spiritual Triumph Over Death and Conscious Encounters with "The Divine Presence"

Sylvia Day
“You and me, baby girl, we're too jaded. We just want mind-blowing sex with someone who knows we're fucked up and accepts it.”
Sylvia Day, Reflected in You

F. Sionil José
“The obscenities of this country are not girls like you. It is the poverty which is obscene, and the criminal irresponsibility of the leaders who make this poverty a deadening reality. The obscenities in this country are the places of the rich, the new hotels made at the expense of the people, the hospitals where the poor die when they get sick because they don't have the money either for medicines or services. It is only in this light that the real definition of obscenity should be made.”
F. Sionil José, Ermita: A Filipino Novel

Katja Millay
“I doubt taking in a sullen, bitter, teenage girl with more issues than National Geographic is at the center of the vision board for a single woman in her early thirties.”
Katja Millay, The Sea of Tranquility

Daniel Willey
“A person who doesn’t understand both sides of an issue can’t relate to the side he is trying to sway, so his words will bounce off of them without leaving any impression.”
Daniel Willey

Sylvia Day
“We knew our strengths and played up our assets. But we couldn't see what made us unique enough for someone to really love us.”
Sylvia Day, Reflected in You

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“Trust is always a good idea. For someone else.”
Sherrilyn Kenyon

Sylvia Day
“I want there to be happily-ever-afters for the fucked-up crowd.”
Sylvia Day, Bared to You

George Orwell
“Within any important issue, there are always aspects no one wishes to discuss.”
George Orwell

Erin Merryn
“Along with the trust issues, one of the hardest parts to deal with is the feeling of not being believed or supported, especially by your own grandparents and extended family. When I have been through so much pain and hurt and have to live with the scars every day, I get angry knowing that others think it is all made up or they brush it off because my cousin was a teenager. I was ten when I was first sexually abused by my cousin, and a majority of my relatives have taken the perpetrator's side. I have cried many times about everything and how my relatives gave no support or love to me as a kid when this all came out. Not one relative ever came up to that innocent little girl I was and said "I am sorry for what you went through" or "I am here for you." Instead they said hurtful things: "Oh he was young." "That is what kids do." "It is not like he was some older man you didn't know." Why does age make a difference? It is a sick way of thinking. Sexual abuse is sexual abuse. What is wrong with this picture? It brings tears to my eyes the way my relatives have reacted to this and cannot accept the truth. Denial is where they would rather stay.”
Erin Merryn, Living for Today: From Incest and Molestation to Fearlessness and Forgiveness

“Good customer care representatives will possess good knowledge to answer any questions without beating around the bush and delaying the issue for a few more days until they find somebody else to look into it.”
Pooja Agnihotri, 17 Reasons Why Businesses Fail :Unscrew Yourself From Business Failure

“Some people grow up with issues because they did not have their parents around growing up, many others have issues because their parents were around growing up”

Ashly Lorenzana
“Everyone has a unique problem of their own, an issue that follows them throughout life and never goes away. You discover it early and go on to struggle with it for the rest of your life, almost until it eventually becomes an old enemy that you lose the will to fight or hate anymore. And just as every person has their own void, their own haunt or their own unanswered question...they also have the power to turn it into a legacy every bit as profound as they make it.”
Ashly Lorenzana

E.M. Forster
“The issues Miss Quested had raised were so much more important than she was herself that people inevitably forgot her.”
E.M. Forster, A Passage to India

“The critical issues here concern what is right, what is just -- not the balancing of benefits.”
Carl Cohen

Elizabeth George
“Each time you turn your life issues over to God and allow Him to lead, you build trust in Him.”
Elizabeth George, Prayers to Calm Your Heart: Finding the Path to More Peace and Less Stress

George Carlin
“My interest in “issues” is merely to point out how badly we’re doing, not to suggest a way we might do better. Don’t confuse me with those who cling to hope. I enjoy describing how things are, I have no interest in low they “ought to be.”
George Carlin, Brain Droppings

Virginia Woolf
“Los omóplatos de Rhoda casi se tocan, en el centro de la espalda, como las alas de una mariposa. Mientras contempla los números de tiza, su pensamiento se aloja en esos blancos círculos. Pasa a través de las alzadas blancas y penetra en el vacío sola. No tienen sentido para ella. Ni ella tiene respuesta para ellos. Rhoda no tiene cuerpo y los otros sí.”
Virginia Woolf, The Waves

C. Wright Mills
“Ours is a time of uneasiness and indifference—not yet formulated in such ways as to permit the work of reason and the play of sensibility. Instead of troubles—defined in terms of values and threats—there is often the misery of vague uneasiness; instead of explicit issues there is often merely the beat feeling that all is somehow not right. Neither the values threatened nor whatever threatens them has been stated; in short, they have not been carried to the point of decision. Much less have they been formulated as problems of social science.”
C. Wright Mills, The Sociological Imagination

“If all your emotional issues get resolved, what will happen to the entertainment industry? How will they engage you? You won't be able to relate to any story. Whole industry runs on your issues.”
