"For a wound to heal, you have to clean it out. Again, and again, and again. And this cleaning process stings. The cleaning of a wound hurts. Yes. Healing takes so much work. So much persistence. And so much patience. But every process has an end and an appointed term. Your healing will come, God willing. And like all created things, your worldly pain will die."

"Your mother did not raise you with a wolf in your chest so you could howl over losing a man."

"start ignoring people who threaten your joy.
literally, ignore them.
don’t invite any parts of them into your space."
