The Things Happy People Know

“Happy people know suffering more than anyone else, and that’s how they can see just how damn beautiful their lives are. It’s because they’ve seen the depths.”

Thought Catalog

Happy people know that everything is fleeting. They know that the struggles they face will pass, but at the same time, they also know that the great things that are in their lives will pass as well. Happy people live in the moment.

Happy people don’t call themselves “happy people” or think of themselves that way. They define happiness as a sense of peacefulness and contentment mixed with pursuing their deepest passions. This is what happy people know.

They know that few things matter more than how much you love everyone, starting with yourself. They know that loving yourself means respecting yourself and doing for yourself what will make you the best you possible.

Thought Catalog

And you were another’s child, too (4).  He held you at arm’s length, saw his future in your eyes (5). You were taken to your grandparent’s house, and to them, you were the newest face of their family (6)—maybe the last they would ever see. You…

Trusting With A Broken Heart

“And the foundation of love is not trust. It is faith.” 🙂 🙂 🙂

Thought Catalog

I want to trust again, trust me, I really do.

But, how does one ever enter a relationship when trust is in the gallows? How does one remain secure, after entering relationships where the men always cheat on you? How does one stop blaming oneself for not being good enough? How does one love again, after her heart is scarred?

So I have been reading, probably a million articles online, that trust is the foundation of a successful relationship. But none of them ever explained why did the people I have loved and trusted decide to cheat. If trust is truly the essence, then betrayal would turn it into poison.

I can never be the same for my future husband. I can never trust any man who comes along my way, because my mind has set to think that trust is a catalyst for a broken heart. Trust is the…
