I am strong because I’ve been weak. I am fearless because I’ve been afraid.

If you’re lucky enough to be different, don’t ever change.

You’re allowed to scream, you’re allowed to cry, but do not give up.

I’ll find strength in pain.

Let yourself be gutted. Let it open you. Start there.

Hope is the only thing stronger than fear.

But nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong.

Growth is painful. Change is painful.

Forget your past, forgive yourself, and begin again right now.

I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become.
