We have to allow ourselves to be loved by the people who really love us, the people who really matter.

It's time to put an end to this. It's time for us to let ourselves be loved.

People tend to be generous when sharing their nonsense, fear, and ignorance.

Be cautious with what you feed your mind and soul. Fuel yourself with positivity and let that fuel propel you into positive action.
