" Let someone love you just the way you are – as flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are. To believe that you must hide all the parts of you that are broken, out of fear that someone else is incapable of loving what is less than perfect, is to believe that sunlight is incapable of entering a broken window and illuminating a dark room. "
" Do not think that love in order to be genuine has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired. Be faithful in the small things, because it is in them that your strength lies. "
" You’re a dreamer and you always have been. You’re creative, kind, and overwhelmingly brilliant. But that job in London or Chicago, that degree, that girl won’t choke out that darkness you live in. Depression doesn’t work like that. It consumes every aspect without discrimination. You know this, I know you do. We need to get you help and that’s okay. I don’t want you to give up. I want you to be able to experience joy and live a life not dictated by this cruel disease of the mind. I love you so much. "
" The words you say carry more weight than you know, and to some, they may weigh more than they can handle. Be kind, speak with purpose and clarity, always with the intent to help those around you grow. If you do say words that are hurtful, be quick to use words that heal, and in doing this you will find that you are being more and more like Christ; speaking truth in love. "
