Maybe you lost someone you never expected you would lose. Maybe you lost yourself. That’s even worse. When you have bad days that just won’t let up, I just hope that you will look in the mirror and remind yourself of what you are and what you are not.
You are not your mistakes.
You are not damaged goods or money from your failed explorations.
You are not the opinion of someone who doesn’t know you.
You are a product of the lessons that you’ve learned.
You are wiser because you went through something terrible.
And you are the person who survived a bunch of rainstorms and kept walking.
I now believe that pain makes you stronger. And now I believe that walking through a lot of rainstorms gets you… Clean.

– Taylor Swift, The 1989 World Tour in Tokyo, Japan.

(not) random quotes

“Pain, you just have to ride it out, 
hope it goes away on its own, 
hope the wound that caused it heals. 
There are no solutions, 
no easy answers, 
you just breath deep and wait for it to subside. 
Most of the time pain can be managed 
but sometimes the pain gets you where you least expect it. 
Hits way below the belt and doesn't let up. 
Pain, you just have to fight through, 
because the truth is you can’t outrun it and life always makes more.”

Meredith Grey
