Remember, one who enjoys more is bound to suffer more because he becomes very sensitive. But suffering is not bad. If you understand it rightly, suffering is a cleansing. If you understand it rightly, sadness has a depth to it which no happiness can ever have. A person who is simply happy is always superficial. A person who has not known sorrow and has not known sadness, has not known the depths. He has not touched the bottom of his being; he has remained just on the periphery. One has to move within these two banks. Within these two banks flows the river.

I got dressed this morning. For myself.
Put on eye liner. for myself.

Put on my favorite red lipstick. for myself.

Showed a bit of skin. for myself
I wanted to be beautiful. For myself.

Incredible change happens in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have power over instead of craving control over what you don’t.

My sadness is not
a cut for you to bandage,
and it is not
a bruise for you to kiss.

I am not waiting
for you to save me.
I am hoping you will love me
while I rescue myself.
