" Love is not only about knowing you love and care about a person so much that you know you'd be willing to do anything for them, but it's also about knowing how and being able to let go. And by doing so, allowing that person to be happy even if it's not with you and accepting the fact that to them, you're just not the one."

" Never let fear make strangers of those who should be lovers."
--- Copyright 2004 Catherine Wade
So many of us shut ourselves off from love because of fear from further pain. Pain is only what we let it be, and fear is what we make it.

I continue to challenge my beliefs and not take all my assertions as facts. I only take those thoughts which help me in the end, because the pay off I get from it means everything. This is a thought that sprung to my mind when I was writing in my diary and I hope that people can benefit from it too.

" The world seen through your eyes is your life. How you envision the world is how you envision your life. To let another see your world for you is to let them control who you are. But, to let another show you their world is to be open minded. To be blind to the world of others is to truly be alone."

" Many of us live our lives as if we are captives of emotion. Thinking if we swim and fight we will make a difference, when the real difference lies in your strength. Peace creates aim. Aim creates happiness. If you cannot handle your situation where you are now, why would you want to move on?"
