I've learned that waiting for someone else to make you happy is the best way to be sad.
And though little things can suck you into depression, gathering the little happy things can help you climb out.
Laughing is really good medicine. Always.
So is talking.. no matter how hard.
And it's beautiful to find someone who loves you no matter how dark things get.
I've also learned that it takes a certain darkness to see the brightest stars.
