It is an impressively arrogant move to conclude that just because you don’t like something, it is empirically not good.
entertainer, writer and producer
When you’ve done something wrong, admit it and be sorry. No one in history has ever choked to death form swallowing his pride.
If your happiness depends what someone does, I guess you do have a problem.
Be all in or get out. There is no halfway.
We give advice by the bucket, but take it by the grain.
Build someone up. Put their insecurities to sleep. Remind them they’re worthy. Tell them they’re incredible. Be a light in a too often dim world.
I would rather be “annoyingly” positive and optimistic than destructively negative and hateful.
Be careful with your words. Once they are said, they can only be forgiven, not forgotten.
