"You have to get hurt. That’s how you learn. The strongest people are the ones who have fought the hardest battles. Because they have decided that they’re not going to let anything hold them down, they’re showing the world who’s boss."
"The essence of life is not being perfect, impressing people, or succeeding at everything. The essence of life is simply making mistakes and learning from them, surrounding yourself with people that love you when you’re being yourself, and getting through the failures so that you can continue improving."
