This life is what you make it. Not matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends – they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything – they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And babe, I hate to say it, most of them – actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up becuase if you give up, you’ll never find your soul mate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.” 

This quote is by Marilyn Monroe, and it’s sort of bittersweet because we all probably know by now that Marilyn died from an overdose and she had a life that was filled with ups and downs meanwhile she was and still is considered one of the most beautiful in Hollywood.  Now that I am mature enough to understand how challenging life is and how the ups and downs are so unpredictable, I can only assess that she did understand that believing in yourself was the only way to succeed and find peace.  However, as we all know this isn’t easy and destructive behaviour whether it’s drinking, drugs, sex, overeating, undereating, etc.. to avoid facing the real issues will never teach you the strength to face them head on. You will teach yourself to always look for a crutch.  You must be courageous and love yourself enough to want better.  The only way to become stronger is to acknowledge the issue or problem, face it with your eyes wide open and find a solution or make peace with it.  xo
