-Love is reflected all around you. Don’t think love comes solely from being with someone. Love is internal, and love is reflective in actions.
-Don’t tell people what you’re up to. Prove yourself and stay in your own lane. Comparison weakens your mind. Impress yourself. Impress God. You are His Child, act as such.

-You’re a reflection of the last people you spent time with. Choose wisely.
-Drugs are for people who have time to waste. You are not one of these people.
-Feelings are forreal. Tread carefully and never give someone the power to break you, because it will happen.
-No one will hold your hand along the way. You are a grown woman so act and behave as someone who believes in herself. Learn from your mistakes and do your best.
How To Sound Confident Even When Your Not
Give your great ideas the verbal boost they deserve with these six tips.
Even if you have great ideas, nobody will listen to them if you sound like a wimp when you open your mouth. By contrast, even mediocre ideas seem profound when spoken with confidence.
Fortunately, it’s not difficult to sound confident if you follow these simple rules:
1. Imagine yourself as your audience’s equal.
If you’re speaking with a CEO, imagine yourself as a CEO. If you’re speaking to engineers, imagine yourself as an engineer. Find and focus on the commonalities between yourself and your audience. If you’re not a supplicant you won’t sound like one.
2. Mentally rehearse each sentence.
You’ll seem massively less confident if you trip over your own words or half-articulate a half-baked sentence. Before you speak, take a brief moment to imagine, in brief, what you’re about say aloud. That pause makes you seem thoughtful and wise, BTW.
3. Speak from your chest not your throat or nose.
When people get nervous, their voices tend to move upwards so that the sound emerges from the throat or nose, which can make even deep wisdom sound like a whine. If you move your voice down into your chest, you’ll sound (and feel) more confident.
4. Speak 20 percent slower than seems natural.
Many people also express nervousness by talking fast. (Hence the hoary archetype of the “fast-talking” salesperson.) People with real expertise tend to speak a bit slowly, as if they expect their listeners to hang on every word.
5. Eliminate your verbal ticks.
Some people use verbal ticks (“Uhhh….,” “you know…,” “I mean…, etc.) while thinking of what to say next. This makes you sound like you’re unsure of yourself, so it’s better simply to silently pause in midsentence. Record yourself and practice, if needed.
6. Never articulate a statement as a question.
A little uptick at the end of a sentence transforms even a definitive statement into a plea for approval. If you’re confident, you make statements that reflect your knowledge and opinion. If you’ve got a question, you ask a question. No mixing the two.
Solitude is Not the Absence of Love
Without solitude, Love will not stay long by your side.
Because Love needs to rest as well, so that it can journey through the heavens and reveal itself in other forms.
Without solitude, no plant or animal can survive, no soil can remain productive for any length of time, no child can learn about life, no artist can create, no work can grow and be transformed.
Solitude is not the absence of Love, but its complement.
Solitude is not the absence of company, but the moment when our soul is free to speak to us and help us decide what to do with our life.
Therefore, blessed are those who do not fear solitude, who are not afraid of their own company, who are not always desperately looking for something to do, something to amuse themselves with, something to judge.
If you are never alone, you cannot know yourself.
And if you do not know yourself, you will begin to fear the void.
But the void does not exist. A vast world lies hidden in our soul, waiting to be discovered. There it is, with all its strength intact, but it is so new and so powerful that we are afraid to acknowledge its existence.
Just as Love is the divine condition, so solitude is the human condition. And for those who understand the miracle of life, those two states peacefully coexist.
