"On your worst days do not look in the mirror and call yourself pretty. Call yourself trying, call yourself surviving, call yourself learning how to get through a day, a week, a month or year. Call yourself still learning."
"Let’s be honest. You let yourself be pulled in because it felt good to be wanted, needed. But then it went too far, as projected images always do. If it’s not a real image, but one that has been projected on to you, then you can keep up the masquerade for only so long before the mask cracks and the paint on the mask peels away."
